Gary Danielson analysis has fans pushing mute button during broadcast of Georgia at Tennessee
Gary Danielson sent several fans to the mute button during the CBS broadcast of Georgia at Tennessee on Saturday.
This is Danielson’s final “SEC on CBS” game in Neyland Stadium, as CBS will broadcast the Iron Bowl next week, the SEC Championship Game, and then the Army-Navy game to close the season. Surprisingly, at least a couple fans forgot that Danielson was on the call on Saturday until the game began.
Danielson and his broadcast partners Brad Nessler and Jenny Dell will call Big Ten games next season, and SEC fans are already looking ahead to a new marquee broadcast crew for the big late afternoon games.
Danielson is well aware of the criticism, but believes it comes with the territory since college football fans have strong opinions.
“I do know it’s there. I’m aware of it. I don’t dwell on it,” Danielson told SDS this past summer. “I don’t dwell on it not because I don’t care what the fans think. It’s actually almost the opposite. I don’t want to dwell on it because I don’t want it to affect how I call the game.
Here’s a sample of the reaction:
Praying to God this is the last time I have to listen to Gary Danielson

Gary Danielson has said “Georgia” twice when talking about the Vols. Also neglected to notice how Pierce drastically affected that QB fumbled exchange. Needs to sharpen up. He is too aware of Georgia’s dominance, lol.

If watching us struggle wasn’t bad enough, we have to watch it to the tune of Gary Danielson drooling over everything about Georgia for the entirety of the drive. He literally didn’t STOP talking about it for more than two seconds.

At the very least both Georgia and Tennessee can agree Gary Danielson needs to be banned from all broadcasts. @SEConCBS

Tennessee online sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.
