Aaron Murray getting called out for CBS broadcast of Auburn-Arkansas game
Aaron Murray was part of the CBS broadcast booth for Saturday afternoon’s Auburn-Arkansas game. And that was something that many fans appeared to not be too happy about.
Throughout the first half, plenty of people took to Twitter to voice their opinions about Murray’s analysis, and much of it was not positive. Murray, a former Georgia quarterback, has been a broadcaster since 2017, and he was put on this game with CBS airing an SEC doubleheader on Saturday.
Auburn led Arkansas, 14-10, at halftime, and the break in the action gave social media plenty more time to continue to react to Murray’s commentary.
Here’s some of what Twitter was saying about Murray heading into the second half:
Definitely the B-team for CBS today. Aaron Murray brings nothing but awkwardness to the broadcast.

Funny. Aaron Murray cried about Nick Fairley tackling like that, & now he seems fine with it.

We’re just a couple minutes into Auburn and Arkansas and I’m pretty sure Aaron Murray has already mentioned Georgia about 3x

Apparently “taking a pop” for Aaron Murray is “falling backwards to the ground and the defender barely scuffing against you”… sounds right.

Aaron Murray and this CBS B crew are insufferable.

The Georgia in Aaron Murray hates Auburn so much. Commentators are supposed to be unbiased but he’s anything but. https://t.co/4nysgufixP

"When was the last time you saw a fullback at Auburn University?" -Aaron Murray, who can't remember anything past two or so years
