Social media calling out Gary Danielson for CBS broadcast of Alabama at LSU
SEC fans may have gotten a break, in their mind, when CBS Sports assigned Carter Blackburn and Aaron Murray to call the marquee afternoon game on a double header day.

But Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson were moved to the primetime game between Alabama and LSU from Tiger Stadium. One of the more common criticisms of Danielson is his perceived pro-Alabama bias, and several fans pointed that out early in the broadcast.
Midway through the first quarter, an audio glitch cut off the feed for Nessler and Danielson, and sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl temporary took over the play-by-play duties. Erdahl picked up several fans along the way as Nessler praised her work, along with several in the audience.
For fans who regularly watch the “SEC on CBS” it was a welcome development, and the person in charge of the audio gained meteoric popularity. One fan even suggested that person would never have to buy a drink in Tuscaloosa again.
Here’s a sampling of the criticism:
Gary Danielson already all on Bama lovely

Put your kids to bed, @garydanielson is about to suck @AlabamaFTBL off for 3-4hrs on National TV. @CBSSports

@SDS Alabama LSU is blacked out in Nola to @DIRECTV subscribers due to @TEGNA greediness. At least they are spared of Gary Danielson garbage

“Obviously we don’t root for anybody or against anybody,” says Gary Danielson while sliding his Alabama hat under the table

The tech guy who cut Gary Danielson’s mic will never have to buy a drink in Tuscaloosa again

Losing Gary Danielson’s voice is the best thing that could happen in this Bama game!

3 minutes of Jamie Erdahl was better than 20 years of Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson, and Brad Nessler! #CBS #Bringherback

“We’ve lost Brad and Gary”

The best few minutes by far of 2020 were the silence we had from Brad and Gary. MVP = whoever cut the cable! 😂 #alabamafootball #alabama #football @AlabamaFTBL

THEY LOST BRAD AND GARY’S AUDIO, GOD BLESS

Seriously, @CBSSports. It was amazing to just watch the game for a few minutes without non-stop unnecessary commentary. Less Brad and Gary. More @JamieErdahl. https://t.co/6z6eOfNBn0

Whoever cut Gary and Brad’s audio feed the first time, I’ll give you 50 bucks to do it again and make it stick*
*for legal reasons this is a joke but I really do want Jamie Erdahl back#GeauxTigers

This game was so much better when Brad and Gary’s audio cut out

Hey @cbssports! #GaryDanielson obviously dislikes the @sec. Why do you keep him on our games? The SEC feels the same way about him.

Did Gary Danielson say the LSU DBs finally met their match vs Alabama tonight? The QB has over 300 yards with 6 minutes to go IN THE HALF!
That same secondary has given up big play after big play all year. And they now finally met their match?!?

Gary Danielson certainly does have a firm grasp of the obvious. 😑 #doofus
