Social media calling out Gary Danielson for CBS broadcast of Florida-Georgia game
CBS broadcaster Gary Danielson was the subject of regular and constant criticism while he called the huge game between Georgia and Florida on Saturday from Jacksonville, Florida.
First, Georgia fans called him out for not praising the Bulldogs enough for their 14-0 lead early in the game. Then a host of fans from all fan bases took issue with CBS’ handling of the injury in the first half to Georgia’s Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint, who appeared to suffer a serious injury in the end zone on the second Georgia touchdown.
As is typical most weeks, even fans of other SEC teams not being featured on the “SEC on CBS” game chime in with their displeasure. Tennessee and Alabama fans, for example, weighed in with their own dose of complaints.
Several fans didn’t agree with Danielson’s opinion about Kyle Trask being the best quarterback in the country, or at least he couldn’t point to any better. Alabama’s Mac Jones was presented as Exhibit A. But Ohio State’s Justin Fields and Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence were also mentioned.
Other fans didn’t appreciate Danielson’s description of “modern college football.”
Here is a sampling of the criticism:
Gary Danielson doesn’t even like Gary Danielson.

Disliking Gary Danielson

Maybe I’m just too easily annoyed, but is anybody else finding Gary Danielson ESPECIALLY annoying today?

I wonder if Gary Danielson would spontaneously combust if he said one nice thing about the gators

Well there is one good thing SEC fans can look forward to in 3 years.
We no longer have to listen to Gary Danielson on CBS for the main afternoon game anymore.#GeorgiavsFlorida

It’s the responsibility of the defender to make sure the defenseless player doesn’t get hurt -Gary Danielson

*Leads w Helmet*
*Launches for impact*
*Walks off field without helmet knowing he wasn’t coming back*
Gary Danielson: “I don’t think it was intentional. The guys are just moving so quick. He did everything right.”
Pure stupidity at its finest #THWG

Can we all agree that Gary Danielson is the worst at least…..
— Cody Mauldin (@mcmauldin) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson is an ear sore.

@CBSSports Can you please give us some insight as to when Gary Danielson will be retiring?
— Daniel Melvin (@DmelDawgFan) November 7, 2020
Everything about Gary Danielson grates on my nerves. Everything.
— Patrick (@DawGoneMetal) November 7, 2020
If I leave now, I can be in Jacksonville before the game ends and punch Gary Danielson in the face.

Gary Danielson makes me want to bang my head against a concrete wall
— Peyton (@Peyton__Lewis) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson doesn’t think Lawrence or Fields is any better than Kyle Trask. Ok…
— Diamonds Tzu (@BigSBrain) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson unironically just called Kyle Trask the best QB in the country. Revoke all voting rights
— Chris Roach (@ckroach6) November 7, 2020
Can we vote Gary Danielson out too
— Ethan (@yeemott) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson said there is no better “quarterbacking” going on in the country that Kyle Trask. Did Mac Jones retire? #CollegeFootball #RollTide
— The Sports Cast (@thesportscast1) November 7, 2020
Can we somehow get Gary Danielson to stop announcing Georgia games. I can’t handle hearing him speak constantly
— Haley Cobb (@Haley__Cobb) November 7, 2020
“No one in the nation is quarterbacking better than Kyle Trask” -Gary Danielson
— Warren (@abeFTW) November 7, 2020
Kyle Pitts is incredible, but Gary Danielson acting like he did something amazing when Stevenson completely just fell down is ridiculous.
— cole trolinger (@c_trolly) November 7, 2020
I can’t stand hearing Gary Danielson even when he’s not calling a UT game.
— Voltruism~WGWTFA GB🍊 (@frogman_423) November 7, 2020
Straight up … Gary Danielson is the ABSOLUTE worst announcer. MUTE. Georgia is up 14-0. All Danielson can talk about is Florida mistakes. Huh? How about great start and good execution for UGA???
— Steven Casey (@StevenCaseyPSY) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson was searching for applause for the fact that CBS stopped showing the highlight of the gruesome injury while TIAA Bank Field continued to show it.
Thank you for your service, Gary.
— Walker Carey (@walkerRcarey) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson is the worst announcer in all of sports commentary. Come on SEC. Put him out to pasture.

Going from Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt calling a game to Gary Danielson and Brad Nessler is like going from orange juice to toothpaste

My God Gary Danielson said we aren’t going to show another replay and @CBSSports does it again…
— Vol Bundy (@BundyFromPolk) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson: “I think the ball crossed the goal line.”
— Derrick Whittington (@DWhitti) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson explaining literally anything is comedic gold.
— Baden (@RaisnCurns) November 7, 2020
Thank you Gary Danielson for telling me that Florida did hurry up to keep Georgia on the field because they can’t Sub. Like we didn’t already know this :)
— Jacob Briscoe (@briscoe_jacob) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson: “The replay is being shown here on the video board even though we aren’t showing it.”
CBS showed the replay twice, and once on pylon cam…
— Matthew Musso (@MussoMatthew) November 7, 2020
The network is awful. Gary Danielson has to say 15 times “that doesn’t look good” like we can’t see that
— Scott (@Scott___Parker) November 7, 2020
Wow, Gary Danielson was wrong again? What a surprise
— Ethan Searcy (@EthanSearcy) November 7, 2020
Gary Danielson is the most tone-deaf, situationally unaware announcer in all of television. Full stop.#SEC #SEConCBS #CBS #saturdaydownsouth
— Matthew Waldroup (@mcwaldroup) November 7, 2020
When can just pull Gary Danielson off broadcasts? He misses names plays injuries etc every single week.
