    Another thing about Danielson and commentators in general is that if they say anything that isn't a 100% homer comment about Bama, then Bama fans here, on WJOX, etc, lose their minds. People need thicker skin. If he says something negative about Bama, and it's true, so what?

    I'm usually one to semi-defend Greg....but my goodness he was even getting on MY nerves badly.

    I love the guy but by the end of the game I really wanted to punch him.....seriously....and I'm a pretty chill person outside of sports.

    When he was complimenting the Refs for calling DPI on us on a Slant route in the 2nd half .....

    ...and THEN that Hail Mary play that NEVER gets a penalty....

    ....but NOT saying ANYTHING about the MULTIPLE Offensive Holding pays they were letting MSU get away with and ONE 2 plays earlier that let Fitzgerald complete a pass to SET-UP that Hail-Mary.....

    I mean I really wanted to knock some teeth out his mouth....lol.

    I just can't defend him anymore......still love the guy all said and done but he's taking it waaaaaaaay too far the other direction.

    I wish they would all just stop talking every now and then. It is not radio. You can shut up for 30 seconds and no one will change the channel.

    While he rambled about the DPI on the Hail Mary, I might have used some choice words. I can't stand Greg anymore. Used to like the job he was doing, but he's just too much now.

    Having Brad Nessler now in the booth has made Gary more bearable for me. Nessler is the best play-by play-guy in the business.

    Well I'm not THAT sensitive about it....I'm saying it all in half-jest. Maybe I should have blue-fonted a few parts.

    I've always liked Greg....I've defended his views a lot.

    But he was ridiculous the other night. He doesn't need to kiss our behinds on TV but he doesn't have to go out of his way to IGNORE the opponent getting away with calls and laughing about it and then being all righteous about every ticky tack flag called on us being 'them's the rules'.

    My favorite color guy of all time was Ken Stabler. He knew football and was so relaxed. I hated when he was let go.

    Baseball has a lot of really good announcers. Chip Carey and Joe Simpson do a great job with the Braves. They’re on the air almost everyday so if you don’t like the announcers they lose their job. Football commentators should take note.

    I'll buy that. He just seems too rigid in that role too.

    The dichotomy of Gary Danielson has been well stated here but just to give one last example he was calling a game recently- not one of ours and I can't recall which one it was.

    Anyways, he says "backup player so and so on the defense is collapsing and over pursuing his gaps on the boundary and if I were (team name) I'd target that player."
    2 plays later they do just that and get a touchdown.
    Gary goes: "I guess coach what's-his-name was listening in to us up here! He did exactly what I said!"

    I said out loud, "Yah Gary, you're a genius and won't let anyone forget it."

    Knows his football and makes the games interesting but he's only a few steps away from X-rated self gratification on national television. That's the part that grinds on me. It's never supposed to be about the announcers, he should never bring the attention back to himself.

    Kirk Herbatreit actually does a good job of not unnecessarily calling attention back to himself. I disagree with his analysis in-game than Gary but I think he has the mechanics of calling a game transparently down better than Gary.

    It's an art form guys and it is WAYYYY harder than it looks to do. Still, it is their profession but I do have some grace for them. I always hated listening to Brian Griese call games.

He played the game and played it at a very, very high level. So naturally he knows the in's and out's of situational football. Many times he knows what the coaches and players are thinking in a certain situation because he's been in that situation before. He also watches a lot of film before each game he calls and also attends some practices. He gets more understanding of both teams than most college analyst I hear.
    I agree 1000%. Everyone talks about Danielson not being a good broadcaster but he's one of my favorite. Super intelligent when it comes to the Xs & Os of football.

    He will get on something and continue to harp on it over and over and over and that can get annoying but I still think he's one of the better announcers in college football.

    I haven't seen anyone mention it yet but I think we are very fortunate that this is a 2:30 game. I did not want this game to be a night game at all.

    I feel the same way. I don't believe in luck, but weird stuff happens in that stadium.
