Gary Danielson faces backlash for comments during Alabama-Arkansas game
Gary Danielson faced a backlash from Alabama fans in particular on Saturday during the CBS Sports broadcast of the game against Arkansas.
At issue was an early comment about a clap simulation of the snap count, and whether Alabama would struggle with it like it did against Texas A&M.
Later, other fans noted that Arkansas seemed to have several first downs reviewed, and a touchdown that wasn’t immediately confirmed.
Here’s a sampling of the fans’ reaction:
If Gary Danielson had a flag in his pocket.. Alabama would have 15 penalties by now. Shut the F up!

Week after week @SECOfficiating_ is out to get Arkansas. It can’t be any more clear. If Gary Danielson disagrees with referees you know something is wrong…

When Gary Danielson is saying that’s a bad penalty, you know it’s a bad penalty. @SECOfficiating

Kinda interesting that only Arkansas close first downs get reviewed…

“Remember, Alabama had trouble with the clap at Texas A&M” Gary Danielson said on my TV just minutes ago.

Just heard Gary Danielson say “Alabama had trouble with the clap at Texas A&M.”
Pretty sure there are antibiotics for that sort of thing, nowadays.

It’s sad that the refs blatantly make calls for Alabama and nothing is done about it.
When you’ve lost Gary Danielson, you’ve lost a lot.
