Social media calling out Gary Danielson for CBS broadcast of Texas A&M at Alabama
While Alabama and Texas A&M were playing a competitive game early on Saturday, the Crimson Tide ended the first half with three consecutive touchdowns to build a 35-14 lead by halftime. Playing its home opener, Alabama took a bit to really get things going.
But for fans watching the broadcast on CBS, they were also focused on the commentary. As the SEC on CBS Game of the Week, Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson were on the call. And Texas A&M fans (as well as Alabama haters) didn’t like what they were hearing from Danielson.
An Alabama bias? That’s what fans took to Twitter to call out Danielson for, as they frequently mentioned what they believed were pro-Crimson Tide comments.
Here’s what social media was saying about the broadcast:
Texas A&M ties it at 14. Gary Danielson is in tears. And A&M should be 17-14 up.

A&M picks it off and takes it back to the 17 yard line.
Gary Danielson: “What a great tackle there by Najee Harris”

Gary Danielson, cries for minutes after his beloved Alabama gives up scores. It’s never the other team, always an Alabama mistake. This dude is a chump.

Oh how I really didn’t miss Gary Danielson’s biased commentary. Also these penalties have to stop.
