Brent Musburger really is a dirty old man.
Or maybe he's just a bitter man. Or a man with a good sense of humor. Or a man who garbled his words at the wrong time.
Last week ESPN felt the need to apologize for the 73-year-old announcer's on-air admiration of Miss Alabama USA Katherine Webb, who was sitting in the stands at the BCS championship game watching boyfriend A.J. McCarron lead the Crimson Tide to victory over Notre Dame.
Musburger made no mention of the incident during his first broadcast since then, Monday's college basketball game between Kansas and Baylor. But as he was signing off, Musburger seemed to get a bit girl crazy again when he said what sounded like, "For Fran Franschilla and Holly Rowe, who was really smokin' tonight, I want to say so long from Lawrence."
