Social media calling out Gary Danielson for CBS broadcast of Alabama at Tennessee
Once Gary Danielson offered to accept a pay cut because of the up-tempo pace of the Alabama-Tennessee game, fans across the SEC may have just yelled for approval in unison. But most wanted him off the broadcast altogether.
Whether it was the early targeting call whistled against Tennessee that was overturned, or the Najee Harris near-fumble at the goal line, Danielson was the target of criticism from fans around the Southeast. The mute button was something many fans reached for just minutes into the broadcast of the “SEC on CBS” from Knoxville, Tennessee.
One fan even called for an invention of a television remote that only muted Danielson. Others were glad that the TV contract in the future didn’t land with CBS, only because of Danielson.
Late in the first half, before Tennessee’s touchdown scoring drive, fans didn’t agree with how Danielson called a would-be pass interference against Alabama.
One fan of another team said even Alabama fans agree that Crimson Tide faithful don’t like Danielson either.
Here is a sampling of the criticism:
Gary Danielson has Alabama underwear. I know it.

The only thing that the Vols and Tide faithful agree on is that Gary Danielson is the absolute worst.

I wish my wife loved me like Gary Danielson loves Alabama.

My prayer is that my children find spouses that love them as much as Gary Danielson loves Alabama

Kind of love that bams have to listen to Gary Danielson every Saturday

This game would be better if Gary Danielson would shut the hell up

Can you please find a replacement for this clown Gary Danielson? He is such a know it all and ruins the broadcast every week…… absolutely obnoxious!!

Can Saban and Bama just let Gary Danielson into their locker rooms and showers so he’ll finally be satisfied and retire?

The sooner the SEC is off CBS and away from Gary Danielson, the better things will be.

Gary Danielson spends five minutes talking about what he sees and why the call should be changed, then when it’s not changed, says he didn’t see a reason to change it in the first place. Fire him CBS! He’s an idiot. Makes these games almost unbearable.

Annual tweet reminding @CBSSports that Gary Danielson makes Booger McFarland look like Keith Jackson.
It’s time for a fresh voice in that chair, he SUCKS

Welp. Only took 5 minutes to decide to mute Gary Danielson this Saturday. What a homer
— Matt Frye (@TilFryeCollapse) October 24, 2020
Only @SEC refs can turn a clear bama football into a play stands. And only Gary Danielson could somehow turn the clear Tennessee recovery of said clear fumble into Bama TD. How he stays employed is fascinating.

Even my Alabama friends can agree, Gary Danielson sucks.
— Kendal Deep (@utkdeep) October 24, 2020
I thought we were done with Gary Danielson doing SEC games? Especially his beloved Alabama? Jesus, as if we don’t have enough bias going on right now.

Gary Danielson is the dumbest human on this planet, wish his vocal cords didn’t work.
— Ben Buell (@ThatGinger_) October 24, 2020
I don’t think Gary Danielson knows what “Rubber Band Man” actually means
— Joe Hunk (@JoeHunk) October 24, 2020
Gary Danielson loves Alabama more than Alabama loves Alabama. Gross

If you don’t like listening to Gary Danielson, change the channel now. This #BAMAvsTENN is shaping up to be a major league blowout and Danielson is going to have to do a lot of talking over the next three quarters. #SECNation #SEConCBS

Why is there cheerleaders in the booth for Alabama football games. Good job Gary Danielson can’t even enjoy watching football game. If you wanna cheerlead get the hell out of the booth! So unprofessional showing your bias every stinking week.

I honestly can’t recall a game where he talked positive about the program/school the entire game. No matter how bad we are.
It’s like we personally wronged him in some way. https://t.co/mzMshnrzsj

The last thing I give a shit about right now is Gary Danielson. I’m infuriated at the product wearing orange and white on the field.

Can someone remind Gary Danielson he isn’t supposed to be rooting for Alabama so obviously? Like we know Saban’s your daddy but damn Gary wait until the game’s over
— Hadley Wilson (@haddiebb) October 24, 2020
I CANNOT stand the CBS commentators. Mac Jones could throw an interception and Gary Danielson would be like “look at the finesse on that throw” 🙄

Am I the only one that notices Gary Danielson wears a navy jacket with black pants every week… like bro come on

I was initially sad when I found CBS was losing the SEC contract. But it’ll be a beautiful day when I no longer have to listen to that dumb son of a bitch Gary Danielson.

I think Gary Danielson will need a cold shower after watching Mac Jones 😒😑 #BAMAvsTENN

I hope one day Alabama has the worst game in college football history, and I hope it’s on CBS and Gary Danielson has to explain his way out of it.

Which is worse: SEC refs or Gary Danielson?

How does Gary Danielson justify his existence? https://t.co/vLOQHtM6A5

But Gary Danielson said it wasn’t?? Clearly the most reliable guy in CFB.
