Naturally, everyone wondered what Musburger said. Fortunately for us, Deadspin got to work and tracked down the unedited video.
(DISCLAIMER: PG-13 language - not appropriate for the kids.)
It seems that what Musburger was trying to say was that Herbstreit may have upset a few people with his decision not to pick an SEC team to play in the national championship game. However, Musburger got his words crossed up and let one slip that starts with 'p' and rhymes with 'hiss'. Whoops.
Fortunately, the censors were on the ball and earned their paycheck this week by bailing out Musburger, who didn't need to apologize to viewers like Lee Corso and Ron Jaworski did last year. Looks like Musburger owes somebody lunch.
