Verne Lundquist jabs ESPN, Brent Musburger over Katherine Webb (Video)
Verne Lundquist isn’t going to gush over Katherine Webb the way Brent Musburger did during the BCS National Championship Game, and he isn’t afraid to let you know that on national TV.
Towards the end of Alabama’s 38-17 win over LSU on Saturday, CBS decided to show two members of Bama’s first family. They flashed to Webb and Dee Dee Bonner (AJ McCarron’s girlfriend and mother), who were in the stands to watch their loved one compete.
Play-by-play announcer Lundquist kept his comments about Webb and Bonner brief, leaving Gary Danielson to question whether his partner was going to say anything else as the shot dragged on.
“That’s it? That’s all you’re going to say?” Danielson asked.
“You’re darned right. I don’t work for that four-letter network. Discretion,” Lundquist advised, as Danielson laughed.
Easy there, Verne. Next thing you know he’ll be calling Brent a pervert.

Also – you have to read this story from SI about how Lundquist picked up his wife at a bar over 30 years ago. It was a bold move, Cotton, and it definitely paid off.
