    Dominated? I wouldn't go that far. They were beating us, but dominating us they were not.
    ROLL TIDE!

    Re: Danielson at it again

    I'm watching it off the DVR now. Actually they (Verne & Gary) were better than usual. Maybe Verne did not drink as much as normal.

    While at it the officials did a pretty good job.

    Re: Danielson at it again

    To give him credit, at least I think it was Danielson said that LSU was playing like Bama. At the time it wasn't funny cause we were losing, but now I look at it as a compliment. And I had to turn the volume down in the 4th qtr. I had had enough of Vern and Gary. When I turned the volume down on the t.v. all I heard was a clock on my wall going tic toc. I thought that was ironic at the time. But it is all good. Roll Tide! Bring on the Aggies!

    well, you can argue what "domination" ultimately means, but statistically, we were dominated last night.

    Re: Danielson at it again

    Sorry, the story line of the night was how our supposedly overwhelming advantage at QB was biting us in the rear end. Both teams got props, but go back and look at the tape. LSU dominated the game in the first quarter, the third and for 13 minutes of the fourth. When we were driving, Danielson passed out plenty of insights and kudos.

    That said, LSU was on the field for most of the game. Ergo, more comments about LSU, particularly since they pulled one third-down conversion after another out of the hat.

    On the pass interference call, he called it ticky-tacky, if I recall correctly.

    I have for the most part been a defender of the CBS coverage the past four seasons, but I felt some bias last night from Danielson, not Vern. It was obvious that he was straining when speaking positively about our program, but freely and zestfully about LSU. He would compliment good Alabama strategy but went beyond that and into cheerleader with LSU.

    Maybe he needs to opt out of his Finebaum segment because it's obvious that he and the fans dislike each other. If I disliked a fan-base I would root for the other team, but I don't have his job. It was apparent the he has little affection for our team and especially head coach. He attempted to cover his tracks with strategic compliments......especially the ones he predicted or endorsed.

    Danielson was rooting for LSU, no doubt in my mind.........and of course I factor in game play. I think you will see people that usually defend them say the same.

    Re: Danielson at it again

    Verne was even more biased. Did anyone catch his "No! No! No!" when Hilliard tried to run that kickoff back 5 yards deep in his own endzone?

    Makes no difference to me who the announcers pull for. Once you understand who they want to see win, then you're able to better understand their commentary.

    He acted the same way when Alabama fielded the punt on the 5 yard line. Their competence can be questioned at times, but neither Danielson nor Verne were overtly rooting for either team.

    Their job is to make the game interesting for all viewers, so that is going to rub viewers that have an emotional stake in the game the wrong way.

    Go to any other message board and they think that both Verne & Danielson are huge Bama homers because they say so many positive things about Bama. In reality, that's because Alabama usually does so many positive things during the game.

    exactly. i watch our games with a cousin who doesnt follow sports much and he joked that Danielson probably drools every time he mentioned Jesse Williams.

    Re: Danielson at it again

    Good grief, do we have to go through this with every CBS game? We should all be used to the fact that no matter what Gary and Verne say, it will always be construed by our fans as biased. I think that they were kind of pulling for LSU last night, but it had nothing to do with us. The more drama that they can generate, the more viewers they get, the more viewers they get, the better their ratings are, and the better their ratings are, the better they get paid in the long run.

    As far as Gary goes, remember how our fans always got mad when he compared everyone to Tim Tebow. Tim Tebow was his standard for being the best of the best, and it drove everyone nuts. Now have you noticed that he doesn't compare anyone to Tebow anymore? If he makes a comparison, it's always to us. We have become his new standard in college football, and no one bothers to notice.

    As far as Verne goes, yeah he mixes some names up. He's been doing this for more years than a lot of us have been alive. He's called more sporting events, in more sports than most of us can comprehend. Think about what he does at CBS for just a minute. He calls every golf tournament, he's one of their main analysts for March Madness every year, and he does the SEC football game of the week among all of the other events he does. That is literally hundreds of events a year if not much more. Do you think anyone on here could take on that schedule without making some mistakes? He's also getting up there in years, and if the worst he does is calling our punter Cory Mandell, then I think he actually deserves some props. Verne will always be Verne, and while he'll never be the homer that we all love in Eli Gold, he's a darn good broadcaster, and he still beats the heck out of Gus Johnson.

    Anyway, rant over, but all this complaining strikes me as very petty and highly unrealistic. Best part is, no matter what the preference of the broadcaster is, we still won, and there isn't a darn thing they can do about it.

    Roll Tide

    Respectfully disagree. Other than Verne's predictable bumbles, I thought the two of them did well. At games end, Danielson, as the rest of us, was probably just a little stunned at the outcome. I was on the floor.

    Good point on that one. I always defended him until this game, even the loss last year. It was subtle, but I sensed that he was ready for the Tide to go down a long with a great majority of the country. So it's not a stretch. It would have been exciting for us to go down to many. The media would have a lot to write about concerning who should be the new #1.
