Social media rips former Purdue QB, longtime CBS broadcaster for bias during Alabama-Texas A&M game
A lot of fans in the SEC may be just fine if they never have to hear former Purdue quarterback and longtime CBS broadcaster Gary Danielson call a game again. Based on the criticism he received over the weekend, his comments were not well received unless you’re a fan of Alabama.
Over the weekend, Danielson was with Brad Nessler to call the CBS Game of the Week, featuring No. 2 Alabama and No. 13 Texas A&M. Throughout the game, Danielson was getting crushed on social media for his “biased” analysis throughout the game, which apparently carried a heavy Crimson Tide lean.
Several went as far as to say that Danielson was rooting for Alabama to win the game — which it did, defeating A&M 52-24.
Below is an overwhelming amount of criticism thrown Danielson’s way from Saturday’s contest:
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, 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.
