BCS Announcer

Pissed at ESPN --

I Did NOTHING Wrong By Ogling Miss Alabama!!!

BCS announcer Brent Musburger stands by the fire in his 73-year-old loins -- telling TMZ, he's NOT SORRY for showering Miss Alabama USA Katherine Webb with compliments during the big game between Alabama and Notre Dame ... because he didn't do anything wrong.

Musburger was arriving at the airport in Palm Beach, Florida Tuesday when we asked if he thinks his comments about QB A.J. McCarron's GF were inappropriate -- and Musburger made it clear ... the answer is NO.

In fact, it was pretty obvious Brent has a beef with ESPN for issuing an apology for the whole thing -- but he still issued a pretty politically correct statement about the Worldwide Leader. 

"Individuals say what individuals say. And corporations do what corporations do," Musburger said ... adding, "Obviously, they felt it was the right thing for them to do."

In case you missed the broadcast last week -- Musburger unleashed a barrage of compliments at Webb when the camera cut to her in the stands, ogling her for a good 30 seconds ... and calling her "beautiful" and "lovely" ... comments people criticized as "creepy."

In Brent's defense ... she's really, really hot.

As a female, I wasn't offended AT ALL by this. ..People on her twitter on the other hand, said absolutely disgusting things about her ...celebrities included... News casters all over the world call The Duchess of Cambridge "beautiful and gorgeous" (the exact terms he called miss Alabama). You dont see anger towards them

So did he mean it as a joke or was he serious? If he was serious, how embarrassing would it be to have to then meet him in a business or social setting? You wouldn't know what he was thinking. He was whining that the football stars get the best women. I wonder what that says about his wife then.


I can see why they apologized. That is their view like he gave his. It doesn't make him look very classy though.

ESPN stinks. Its more about self promotion and pushing stereotypes than the actual sports. I cant watch that network anymore. Just about every sport has its own channel that far exceeds ESPN.

I see nothing wrong with what he said.The game was over in the first quarter and these poor guys had to talk about anything untill this one sided BLOW OUT was over.What Brent said sure helped this pretty girl in the crowd get a good jump start on her career.

Remember the days when you could pay a lady a compliment without the threat of a lawsuit or being tagged a pervert. Thankfully, Miss. Webb is a lady with class, who saw the compliment for what it was.

Is there a Mrs. Musburger? Commenting once would have been enough but like many old men he kept it going until he made a fool of himself.

Poor Brent. It's probably been such a long time that things worked for him in that department that when he was verbally drooling over her he was wondering what the hell was going on in his pants. Maybe it felt good after all those years so he kept it up, in a manner of speaking.

As a woman, I don't feel that this man said anything inappropriate. No apology necessary. Much ado about NOTHING!

Brent wasn't in control of the camera OR what image was being shown. He is a COMMENTATOR and was doing his job.
