Gary Danielson is getting blasted: New conference, same complaints from fans
When the game between Texas A&M and Ole Miss was postponed because of COVID-19 concerns and protocols, CBS Sports decided to switch its afternoon game of the week to San Diego State and Nevada from Reno.
That meant that the broadcast team of Brad Nessler, Gary Danielson and Jamie Erdahl also went out west and did not call an SEC game this week. It was the second straight week that CBS made a last-minute audible after the Alabama-LSU game was called off last week. However, the network had The Masters to broadcast that afternoon.
This time, college football fans in the West got a dose of what SEC fans have complained about for years, and that is Danielson’s gaffes. This time it was the conference involved, and even the name of the field.
Here’s a sampling of the criticism tossed Danielson’s way throughout the broadcast:
@CBSSports Would Y’all PLEASE alert Ur Commentators that it’s “Clarence Mackay Stadium” & it’s “Chris Ault FIELD!!” RE: #GaryDanielson Hello!! Try looking on the FIELD 2 see & read the actual NAME!!! TY. pic.twitter.com/kUtj6fQztI

Is Gary Danielson this inaccurate all the time or can we use a new conference as an excuse?

Gary Danielson is embarrassing your network. He couldn’t be bothered to remember Lucas Johnsons name, and he said Nevada players were preseason All-WAC, a conference that dropped football in 2012.
Hes an elitist jerk that is feels non sec games are below hi.

Brad Kessler and Gary Danielson NOT calling an SEC game on @CBSSports is actually both weird and quite refreshing.
