Tuesday, ESPN responded to the commentary:
“We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”
The comments during the game:
You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women,” Musburger, 73, said. “What a beautiful woman.”
“Wow!” his partner, Kirk Herbstreit, said.
“Whoa!” Musburger added.
“A.J’.s doing some things right down in Tuscaloosa,” Herbstreit said.
“If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pop,” Musburger said.
