Brent Musburger Has No Idea What He's Talking About Anymore

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

It's been well documented here that Brent Musburger is slowly losing his mind and it wasn't more evident than last night. I was blown away at how glowing Musburger spoke about Indiana Coach Kelvin Sampson. He almost demanded that the Coach not be fired.

MDS at Fanhouse pulled one of these moments last night and it's pretty evident that either Musburger doesn't think Sampson committed the violations or he shouldn't be punished....



It doesn't stop there though. Check out Brent's Rumor Mill.....



Yes folks....you heard it from Brent first! The Wizards are planning to trade Caron Butler. Not just to any team, but back to the one they got him from!!! Do you think that they can get Kwame Brown in the deal? The Washington Post has to be pissed that Musburger broke this story and they didn't.

2 days ago - the rumors were swirling in LA.

Brent did mention that it was just a "rumor", so it wasn't like he actually broke the story. If anything, this just solidifies what we already know - he reads blogs: http://thelakersnation.com/blog/?p=2158#more-2158

The rumor was a straight up Caron Butler for Lamar Odom trade (maybe a few throw-in's to even even out money wise)

However, the same blog now mention that the "rumor" is bogus. After Odom's night last night - a double double by mid-2nd quarter. I'm sure most fans aren't too disappointed.

For Brent to mention that he hopes Sampson is still coaching on Saturday is ridiculous and he should be ridiculed for saying that. For him to mention a rumor - isn't such a bad thing.

Hmmm....I asked around and couldn't find that info anywhere. There's no way in hell that the Wizards would ever do that.

I'm with you though....I don't know how you can't think Sampson shouldn't be fired.

I was a little shocked myself when he started talking NBA rumors during a college game. Especially such a ridiculous trade. The Wizards would never trade Butler for Odom, they'd be stupid as hell.

Musberger talked for 10 minutes about some barber shop he went to in Bloomington before the game. Hard-hitting journalism!!!

Colin Cowherd was talking about that ridiculous NBA trade rumor on his show yesterday; I'm sure that's where Brent picked up that tidbit. Now, why did he mention it during the middle of the Purdue-IU game? Who friggin' knows.

Hasn't he always been this way, he speaks about everybody in glowing terms?

Well that's true HW, but I just couldn't believe the comments he made throughout the game about someone who obviously should already be fired.

The “He should have a chance to tell his side" by Brent was ridiculous...the fact is he had that chance back in October...one of the violations is for lying back then. If IU has evidence that he lied to the NCAA he should be gone!

The reason it came up was because they had to do a promo for the Lakers/Suns game that comes on tonight. I hope the trade happens. It'll only make my Lakers better.

AA,

With a new Skins coach and an election think the Post really cares about getting scooped on a NBA trade ?
