    Oh he's very adept at pointing out things that most broadcasters miss. And I understand getting wrapped up in the hype of a transcendent player like a Tebow. It's JMO that Danielson has a bad habit of going too far with it. JMO, though.

    Yeah, that's it. He goes too far and I think he has toned it down. Verne is on his last leg though enjoy a good laugh or two when he bumbles and stumbles through things, but Greg is mostly good. I do get upset at times, but right now it's Pollack and Granny I just can't stand.

    I have a feeling that a lot of people would think more highly of Danielson's work if he was paired up with Nessler or McDonough. I think Verne brings Danielson down a bit. Verne's strength is calling some of the holes on the back nine at The Masters...not football.

    Here's a good combo: Musburger and Jesse Palmer.

    The crew I miss the most was Franklin and Gottfried back 10-15 years ago. To me they were the crew for Saturday night ESPN Primetime games.

    Perhaps it's like those who grew up during Keith Jackson's heyday, but for me, those two were it. I grew up in the 90s, and we got satellite TV for the first time in 1996. Ron Franklin had the absolute best voice for it and Gottfried was a great analyst. They were SEC football for me when I was a kid.

    Yes, it was Rece, Jesse Palmer, and David Pollack for the UGA/Nebraska game. Throughout the game, I felt like Jesse and Rece were making very slight digs at Pollock and UGA's expenses by mentioning about how they lost the SECCG or didn't make it to a BCS bowl every few minutes. I thought it was pretty funny.

    I agree. The ones they did that still stand out to me 15+ years later were the '96 game against Auburn and the game in 1997 when LSU beat #1 Florida in Tiger Stadium.

    Ya'll don't like it when Verne says "Touchdown Lou-EEEEEEE-zi-ana State Univeristy"?

    College vs pros, but I always loved Mike Patrick as a play-by-play guy from his ESPN Sunday Night Football days.

    Verne doesn't do his homework. If he does, he can't remember it.

    Danielson thinks very highly of his own opinion, and he's quite informative. I've grown to like Danielson's analysis, but that's about all I like about Danielson-knowledge and breakdown.
