Meanwhile, BCS commissioners met yesterday and will meet again today "as they continue to iron out details for the new playoff." Among the major topics of discussion are "determining how and of whom the selection committee will be composed and finalizing the location of the semifinal rotations" (ESPN.com, 1/7).
Brent Musburger's comments on Alabama QB A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb, drew heavy response on Twitter and other outlets. During the first quarter, the camera panned to Webb in the stands, and Musburger said, "You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women." Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan tweeted, "Sources: A.J. McCarron's girlfriend to seek restraining order from Brent Musburger at halftime." ESPN's Darren Rovell: "By the end of this game, there will be more modeling agents in the stands going after @_KatherineWebb than sports agents."
NBC’s Savannah Guthrie said of Musberger's comments, “I guess the game wasn’t exciting enough.” NBC’s Matt Lauer: “It was a little over the top, Brent” (“Today,” NBC, 1/8). CBS’ Gayle King: “I think it’s so unbecoming when a grown man slobbers and drools. You wanted to say to Brent, ‘Down boy, down’” (“CBS This Morning,” CBS, 1/8).
