Gary Danielson faces backlash during CBS broadcast of Texas A&M at Alabama
Gary Danielson was on the call with Brad Nessler on the “SEC on CBS” in primetime for Texas A&M at Alabama, and fans on both sides were irritated with his commentary.
Much of the discussion during the broadcast was about the injuries at quarterback for both teams, but some fans focused on Danielson’s alleged bias toward Alabama. One fan thought he mispronounced Devon Achane’s name. And another fan didn’t like how Danielson compared Jalen Milroe to Bryce Young, as Milroe’s parents likely wouldn’t appreciate it.
In the rare CBS double header, fans who normally watch Danielson during the 3:30 p.m. ET time slot still didn’t appreciate him in primetime.
After the teams exchanged turnovers late in the first half, Alabama got a late field goal to take a 17-14 lead at halftime.
Here’s a sampling of the reaction:
Alabama, hire Gary Danielson already. The guy lives and breathes everything you do.

Say what you will about Gary Danielson. At least he doesn’t interrupt the game to make us watch Aaron Judge strike out.

Gary Danielson sucks just as much at night as he does in the afternoon.

I’m pretty sure the parents of the current #Alabama QB would really appreciate it if Gary Danielson would stop comparing their son to Bryce every play! He’s not Bryce. Stop it Gary! He’s terrible! @CBSSports #Alabamafootball

Brad Nessler used to be decent. I don’t think Gary Danielson has been anything but below average at anything he’s ever done in life. Can’t stand listening to him on tv.

It took my 14 year old daughter exactly one quarter to ask to mute Gary Danielson and @CBSSports garbage

We’re 3 minutes in and Gary Danielson has already creamed his pants over an Alabama play

Gary Danielson might blow a load live on TV since he can now talk about Bama AND actually call one of their games! He usually holds those for the time he’s calling a different SEC teams games while talking about Bama.

Over/under 3.5 at how many times Gary Danielson calls for a targeting review

Find someone that loves you as much as Gary Danielson loves Nick Saban and Alabama football.

Someone tell Gary Danielson it’s not pronounced “Devin Achane”
