Gary Danielson getting called out for CBS broadcast of Alabama at Florida
Gary Danielson and Brad Nessler were back in the booth on Saturday for the opener of this season’s “SEC on CBS” game featuring Alabama at Florida.
At issue for many fans were Danielson’s early analysis of the Florida defense after the Alabama offense scored on the opening drive. Of course, fans from both sides called out Danielson’s perceived bias, as one example came on an early pass interference call against Florida when Danielson said he didn’t think it was a good call.
Danielson’s most popular comment came midway through the first quarter, when he said, “So far in this game it just appears like the Alabama athletes are just better than Florida’s athletes.”
Plenty of fans forgot how they felt about Danielson seeing that this is the first time they’ve heard him call a game in about 9 months.
Here’s a sampling of some of the reactions:
Gary Danielson is brain dead

Geez, Gary Danielson should coach, he seems to know everything!

Gary Danielson asking Florida to “rely on your defense” illustrates that he was not really paying attention to that first Alabama drive.

Gary Danielson just said “get your 3 points… it’s a successful drive…”
That’s not true. That’s not the case in the least bit when you’re playing Alabama
The season of wimpy-ass field-goal settling is upon us and these old dudes are still spreading that tired narrative

Brad nessler and Gary Danielson are THE worst. They should be restricted to non Alabama games.

It is so obvious that Gary Danielson is anti-Alabama.
“I don’t like that call” regarding the PI against Florida. Of course you don’t Gary.#RollTide
