CBS' Lundquist Cracks Wise At ESPN About Katherine Webb
In the waning minutes of last night's LSU-Alabama college football game, CBS' camera showed Dee Dee Bonner and Katherine Webb, the mother and girlfriend of Alabama QB A.J. McCarron, watching from the stands. Webb gained notoriety during the '13 BCS Championship Game after ESPN's Brent Musburger drew some heat for several comments he made about her, but CBS' Verne Lundquist made sure not to go down that same road. He said of Bonner and Webb, "They watch now as A.J. McCarron may or may not make another appearance on the field." After a few seconds of silence, CBS' Gary Danielson asked, "That's it? That's all you're gonna say?" Lundquist immediately replied, "You're darn right. I don't work for that four-letter network. Discretion" ("LSU-Alabama," CBS, 11/9).
