    gary and verne suck. it is a fact. expecting them to do anything else other than suck is asking and hoping for too much. it is like me hoping one day my cat doesnt shed.

    I'll be honest, I don't really care if the announcers have a bias against us or not. I hear only parts of what they say because I'm really into the game itself and am usually talking to other fans around me. As others here have said prviously, some people's skin is just thinner than others. Some are goint to see a bias against their team no matter what.
    Get over it or just turn the sound off.

    I don't care what anybody says, Verne is one of my favorites. Call me crazy, but I'm a young one, growing up, Alabama would be on CBS alot (started watching CFB around 2000). Verne's voice is most recognizable to me, well him Eli Gold, Brad Nessler, and Dave Neal.

    I have to admit that I was one of the ones that thought they showed bias against us but then I realized that whether they do or not has no impact on the game at all. They don't suit up, our players don't hear it so really there is no harm done. I only wish I had a nickel for every time Verne finds a way to use the name Tebow in his broadcast.

    Verne was a great sideline reporter for Keith Jackson who everyone knew loved USC Trojans BUT Alabama had him do our 100 year video 20 years ago.

    Curt Gowdy, Chris Schinkel & Keith were the very Best.

    Yes there is bias, they are human.

    It just seems that a lot of them today want to make news rather than report sports. There take is good but like last year they became advocates for a cause.

    ESPN started this with the Boaie stuff 5 years ago. Where is ESPN on Bosie today??

    When they love you you are doomed.

    I think some Bama fans are to thinned skinned. Gary and Verne aren't biased toward any particular team, their just biased toward a good game. They want a close game that will keep fans tuned in as opposed to that Bama/AU snoozer. If some Bama fans consider Gary and Verne biased...they ain't seen nothing yet.
    If anything goes bad, I did it. If anything goes semi-good, we did it. If anything goes really good, then you did it. That's all it takes to get people to win football games for you. - Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant

He sees Cooper, who would hold all Olympic sprint records if he were not too busy developing new quantum physics theories in the off-season. The slack-jawed grossly overmatched Georgia defenders have no chance. AJ releases the ball into the tightest spiral ever thrown, and it lands with military missile precision in Cooper's arms for another TD for the only college football team that is or ever was. If only Coach Bryant, the greatest coach of all time, were here to see this display, but rest assured fans, Saban is the only man on the planet that is worthy to bask in the Crimson glow emanating from the field. Verne, can you just hold me for a second while I soak it in regarding how lucky we are to be in the presence of the Bama nation."
    Now you're getting close to what some of us want.

    I am pretty sure that Gary said that he had talked to an official to see if Square would be suspended for the next game because of the hit to Murray. I thought that the officials sucked I dont think they were against us but there was alot of bad calls or no calls against us.I think Gary has Bama Fatigue but Verne is just senile and needs to think about retirement just like Corso.I wish the radio was not ahead of my tv so I could listen to Ely. I just cant listen to the play happening then I see it 4 seconds later.RTR I tried and it messes the game up for me.Roll Tide Roll off to Miami we go.

    I wouldn't mind them so much if the camera would just stay on the field. Why does CBS hire someone with ADD to keep switching cameras and angles?
    The worst is when there's a flag and we don't see the ref. That's what drives me nuts.

    I still dont see the bias against Bama. i even saw the roll tide commercial on ESPN twice this morning. if that is "against Bama" i'd like to see what bias towards Bama looks like.

    Brando is the one who irks me. I swear he gets plum giddy at the thought of Bama losing.

    On the bowl selection show, there was just a very interesting/entertaining exchange between Lou Holtzssssssth and Pollack:

    Lou: I think South Carolina is exactly like Alabama. You saw how much trouble Michigan had with Alabama.

    Pollack: I agree. They're exactly like Alabama. Minus the dominant offense line. Minus a star quarterback. Minus a playmaker at wide receiver. They're exactly like Alabama.
    "I didn't come to Alabama to win 10 games a year and be a contender. I came here to win championships. Conference championships and national championships. I love it here because that's just not what I want, but what this fanbase expects."
    --Alabama Head Football Coach, Nick Saban
