Bryant Gumbel stopped by Katie Couric's soon to be dead talk show to talk about the problems on the Today Show.

Gumbel took the time to stick up for his buddy and golfing partner Matt Lauer.  

"There were a lot of missteps along the way," Gumbel told Couric. "I feel badly that Matt wound up getting blamed for the missteps because it wasn't his doing. I just didn't get the whole thing."

He continued, "I also don't get why it's such a big deal when someone in this business gets let go. As you know, it happens to all of us at some point. It's a big boy league and you move on. But in my opinion, the wrong guy got blamed."
