Will Brent Musburger be joining Tim Tebow as an analyst for the new SEC Network?
In a related story from The Inquisitr, Musburger is apparently feeling his age and actually managed to forget his name on live TV. He also got into trouble recently by spending way too much time focusing on AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, which some people called “creepy,” “awkward,” “uncomfortable” and “heteronormative.” (In actuality, all Brent did was say she was “lovely lady” and “beautiful” and that “quarterbacks get all the good women.”)
So some reports claim ESPN will be putting Brent Musburger out to the pasture since his contract expires in several months. There are rumors that “Musburger has been offered the job of lead college football announcer for the upcoming SEC Network, which debuts at the end of August.” But whether or not he’ll take the job is fairly unclear. He’s apparently unhappy with the job offer process and he “isn’t doing any interviews on the subject.”
Tim Tebow, on the other hand, is happy just to have any job at the moment involved with football:
“I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity. When I was six years old I fell in love with the game of football and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be a part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC.”
But some people have questioned whether Tebow is fit for the job of a critical football analyst. After all, Tim has a long history of staying positive, always uplifting his teammates, and never insulting anyone. While that’s great as a leader on the field, he’s been questioned whether that’s an asset while manning the desk at the SEC Network:
“Well, thank you for saying that I’m someone who’s positive. I would love to continue to be someone who’s positive but also be someone that is objective. I’ve never had a hard time saying what I believed or standing up for something, and hopefully I can continue to be that same person as an analyst and sharing what I believe about players, about teams, about games. I will look at it from an objective prism and try to share an insight with the viewers just like I always have any time I’ve had the opportunity to share.”
Makes you wonder what he’d say about Sherman’s rant with Erin Andrews…
