Well, we all knew the Joe Mixon situation isn’t going to get any easier. Tonight, during the Sugar Bowl, ESPN thought it was a good idea to let a 77-year-old handle the Joe Mixon discussion tonight:
I rewound this to make sure I wasn't being too tough on Brent. Nope. It's even worse the second time. This is embarrassing. pic.twitter.com/QAoikxck9G

Musburger, a noted gambler, decided to double down on his comments later in the game, andddddd it didn’t go well:

Overall, a tough night for Musburger. Definitely would’ve been better if he just avoided the topic altogether, although that may have not been possible.
P.S. I would’ve LOVED to seen Palmer’s face as Musburger doubled down.
