ESPN’s Brent Musburger didn’t seem to understand why people would criticize him for wishing Joe Mixon well in the NFL … and lashed out at his critics LIVE during the Sugar Bowl.
It all started in the 2nd quarter, when Musburger — who was announcing the game — said he hopes Mixon makes the most of his 2nd chance and goes on to have a career in the NFL.
Social media went crazy asking how Brent can support a guy who brutalized a woman … which led to Brent’s very agitated response live in the 3rd quarter.
As for Mixon, he led Oklahoma to a victory over Auburn … despite chants from the crowd of, “He Hits Women.”
We reached out to ESPN for comment. So far, no word back.
