Have you heard anything about Splash? If you only want to know the most important thing about it, it’s that it allowed this photo to exist. But if you want more detail: it’s a reality show in which people of varying degrees of fame compete to see who can become the best diver. One of those people: Katherine Webb. Remember her? Brent Musburger does… and she remembers him right back.
ESPN’s Brent Musburger has been on quite the roll of late – first there was his borderline inappropriate ogling of AJ McCarron’s girlfriend and mother, Katherine Webb and Dee Dee Bonner, and then he may have called ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe “really smokin.” But he doesn’t think he’s in the wrong.
Did Brent Musburger Call Holly Rowe “Really Smokin’” To Wrap Up Last Night’s Kansas-Baylor Broadcast?
That we’re even having this conversation, again, probably shouldn’t be. But ESPN’s Brent Musburger might have dipped his toe into the awkward once again last night at the end of the Kansas-Baylor broadcast when he was signing off for the ESPN crew.
During last night’s BCS Championship, ESPN’s Brent Musburger just couldn’t help but creep on AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb and mother Dee Dee Bonner. It was a little old-man-uncle creepy, but more laughably harmless than anything. Still, ESPN, for whatever reason, felt the need to apologize.
It’s early, but AJ McCarron and the Crimson Tide look well on their way to a second straight national championship. Even if the Irish can right the ship and stop McCarron from becoming the first QB to be a repeat champion in the BCS era, he has still won. He has beat us all. Because the woman on the left is his girlfriend, model, Miss Alabama, Katherine Webb.
Talk on television long enough, and you’re going to accidentally say something dirty-sounding on air eventually. You’ve heard what “bulging disc” can become, for example. And as Brent Musburger proved Saturday night, no amount of broadcasting experience makes you immune.
On Saturday, Lamar University stomped McNeese State in the Southland conference tournament final, punching their ticket to the big dance and making people around the country ask, “Huh? What is Lamar University?”
Well, Lamar is coached by Pat Knight, son of the venerable coach Bob Knight. And anyone who knows Bob knows that he can be a little curmudgeonly. But not this day — this day, Bob would be very proud of his son. Check out Bob’s reaction, which includes a full blown smile, when Brent Musburger brings it up during the Big 12 championship.
During today’s broadcast of the Red River
Shootout Rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma on ABC, Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit didn’t do the regular network plug for a prime time series like Desperate Housewives or Grey’s Anatomy. No, they informed the national audience that the ONLY place to catch Texas’ October 29 game against Kansas is on the Longhorn Network.
When Brent Musburger intoned, “This is for all the Tostitos” before Auburn’s national-championship-winning field goal in January, there are many things you might have thought. “He might be predicting a future Oregon-themed food product!” probably wasn’t one of them.
Brent Musburger had somewhere to be yesterday: from 4-5 p.m., he was all set to appear on ESPN Radio at the Palms in Las Vegas to benefit The Caring Place, a nonprofit that helps people whose lives are affected by cancer. Good cause, with one problem – well into that 4-5 time slot, he was nowhere to be found.
