Danny Kanell colorfully responds to idea of supporting SEC if Florida State joins league
Danny Kanell is known as one of the biggest SEC critics in college football media, and he was recently asked about how his long-standing opinions might change if Florida State, where he played, joins the league.
The Seminoles have long been rumored as a possible expansion candidate for the SEC. That has picked up recently with talk by Florida State leaders about how much it would cost to leave the ACC.
Kanell explained his position recently with Crain & Company.
“I don’t know what the future holds, but I guarantee you one thing,” he said. “You will never hear me chanting SEC! SEC! Never. You will never see me rooting, like if Florida State’s in the SEC, I’m supposed to root for the Gators, that would never happen, or any other team in the SEC. I will only, just the way it’s always been, I will only root for Florida State. Because that’s all you’re supposed to do. Rooting for your conferences is for losers. Those are always the people that chant the loudest. It’s the South Carolinas, the Kentuckys, Tennessee recently, it’s all the teams that have no success. They all want to jump on there and start claiming the titles of the conference because they don’t have one. Will never see that.”

Danny is irrelevant just like Free Shoes University
Finally I’m 1st!! I predict that there will be 576 anti Kennell posts on this thread by tomorrow morning. Btw..I gave birth yesterday. .my gender reassignment surgery finally Paid off. 6lbs 4 ounce baby Hillary.
Actually, you’re not the first.
That attitude is narrow minded yet understandable, but is also one of the reasons the ACC is dying and the SEC is the major power in college football. There’s no cultural or geographic glue that holds the ACC together.
Longer term, the B1G may suffer the same fate as the ACC for lack of geographic/cultural glue.
O’er lo these many years, Emilio, many a brilliant thing you have said. But THIS is the core, fundamental, ground truth!!!
Dead nuts, center of mass, minute of angle spot on, buddy. College football has forever been, is now, and forever more world without end be a geographical phenomenon. No amount of $$ will ever change that.
Danny is the gwhite / somealabamaturd of the media world.
Your obsession with me is hilarious.
Whatever you say, gwhite.
Whatever you say animal screwer.
Now that’s a snappy comeback if there ever was one!
Is DeLandnotthe birthingparent now identifying as an animal?
If so, I wonder what his preferred-personal-pronouns are. Any guesses besides “it”?
Corch’s pronouns are Re/tard
I think clearly Me/Me, but it’s hard to tell since as a drive-by troll there’s not a lot to go on.
Corch has numerous identities.
Ah, another one of Corch’s accounts. Nice to meet you again ma’am.
No way pardner, misinformation. AFan is AFan, and there’s only one.
Corch sure has a lot of accounts.
Correct, but while you’ve got the right string, clearly the wrong yo-yo.
If you aren’t one of Corch’s accounts, how do you know Corch has these said other accounts? Surely you’re not just guessing.
OK, will the real corch please stand up!
Bamaboy, stop annoying my alter ego, Doc! We “other Nagan accounts” don’t take too kindly to one our own getting picked on by trolls.
I can’t argue with DK (wink) about UT’s lack of success recently, but I do remember going to the Fiesta Bowl and watching UT beat FSU for the NC.
He literally supports the ACC. Isn’t he self burning by calling people that support conferences losers?
Well no worries Danny .. the sec is not inviting his Alma as it would make no sense to add them . What would fsu bring to the sec ?
Crawlers, lots of crablegs. And SA charges..
That would have been my second guess Gtrips, right after a 10-3 record and a Cheez It Bowl trophy…lol
That constantly annoying tomahawk chop chant!
Good point! Hail no to FSU…
Stl…But you’ve gotta admit that the Indian Chief riding to the center of the field with that flaming-spear is really neat. Been to a few FSU games way back when and that pumped-up the crowd big time.
It seemed though to lose its luster after Saint Bobby retired, may he rest in peace. Never been an FSU fan, but man I liked that guy. Don’t think we’ll ever see another quite like him.
That’s very cool AFan. So was 90,000 screaming Gator fans greeting opponents with, “GATOR BAIT, GATOR BAIT, GATOR BAIT!!!” as they exited the tunnel into The Swamp.
Another great tradition cancelled by wokeness!
Absolutely pathetic that the swamp season ticket holders sold out to the wokes . That was quite the cool tradition y’all all had at Ben Hill. Glad to see the FSU ticket holders had the balls to fight for Renegade and his spear chunkerchief and not cower down to the minority’s will like y’all did.
You guys heard the story of FSU’s defense of their Seminoles nickname and mascot, Chief Osceola? It is an absolute classic.
Emilio, that ~Gator Bait~ clap-trap started around 2016, based one obscure and vintage print in which one could see anything one wanted to see, no hidden context, and was nonsense then as it remains now.
Doing away with the Gator Bait chant was cowardly on the part of UF, but defending the Seminole nickname and mascot was brave on the part of FSU.
They invited the current chief of the Seminole Tribe of Florida to testify on their behalf at their NCAA inquest. The chief told the NCAA weenies that it was an honor for the university to choose a Seminole warrior as their symbol and mascot. That put an end to all their demands to change the FSU nickname.
Only in the bizarre world of virtue signaling do the actions of UF make sense. It’s what you get when people are educated beyond their intelligence.
“Educated beyond their intelligence.” That’s clever and succinct! I’m going to borrow that one going forward if you don’t mind. It has a lot of applications in this social climate.
For someone that does not want to join the SEC Danny sure talks about it a whole lot. Mostly negative. I guess jealousy does that to a person.
With the SEC moving to 16 teams, there’s no logical reason to add more. Add some point any added revenue, just gets split in between more schools. Then, the competition factor is already maxed out with 14 teams. It’s not like adding more improves the level of competition especially now likely moving to a 9 conference game schedule
It’s all about TV ratings from more interesting annual matchups. Think about the LSU – FSU game on opening day. Lots of people want to watch that game. LSU – Kentucky, not as many. What if LSU and FSU were on each other’s annual rival schedule?
SEC expansion from now on will be decided on maximizing those types of matchups.
I must be a loser (don’t answer, I’m fragile) since I always root for other SEC teams when they’re not playing Florida. As any true Son of the South would, quite naturally.
Rebel Yell Doc, no other conference can touch the SEC.
Dunno JTF – haven’t touched a drop since that night at Carmichael’s Academy of Cultured Anatomy, Ft Walton Beach, August 28 1986. (:
I think that was everyone’s first encounter with the porcelain bowl!
Now back in the days of my callow youth – obviously before my callow adulthood – Rebel Yell was my go-to when I couldn’t afford Jack Daniels (which was often). Lifting one up metaphorically to you, Tailwhip.
Wonder if they still make that stuff?
Gotta join in this…Go SEC ! It Just Means More.
Same here doc. Kanell is definitely an FSU homer and SEC hater, likely due to its superiority to the ACC.
If FSU joins the SEC, he won’t have to worry about cheering for anything.
Problem solves itself.
Wonder why SDS chose to place this article on the Gator site? It’s an SEC article, but the clickbait was too much to overcome placing it here.
Gators are outspoken, good or bad and you’re right, involving the UF fanbase directly leads to more views/clicks.
Kanell…this is for you. Get lost in your anti-SEC world out there.
My new birthing name has now been legally changed to Miranda Wright.
A fat, pendulous chest, like a fat head, does not qualify one for the X-chromosome regardless of how much equity you endorse.
Maybe, you should order yourself some of those new Daily Wire She/Her candy bars. They’re made from pure milk chocolate and, unlike their He/Him candy bars, they have no nuts.
“no nuts”. Like how you directed the convo back to Danny Kanell.
