Default Re: CBS commentators

These two put on their best show. CBS didn't waste their chance to give us the very best of Verne and Danielson. A prime time game pitting the best two teams from the best conference in 'merica. Too bad for Mizzou and Auburn, Lundquist and Danielson's best game at broadcasting means talking about things that didn't happen.

Danielson was on target for the first several calls and no calls. It was kind of impressive at first but then you realize after the long the 5-6 second delays he'd blurt out his final vote mid review of a play frame as if it were a game of Win, Lose, or Draw. "Jackal! Jackal! Jackal! It's a Jackal!!!". I can only hope Danielson, with all his adamant shouting, doesn't interrupt the person in his earpiece trying to give him the answer; meanwhile the rest of us at home are fooled as to what is in the right hand by bad camera angle. Thanks CBS

But then they kinda hung him out to dry on the run play where Mizzou's RB Josey gets shoved into the cart awaaaaay out of bounds by the AU Safety.. Which only had one camera angle and he had to watch the same angle I did for once, poor Danielson kept shouting "THE TIRE! THE TIRE!...he hit the tire!"... Never realizing that "tire" he's seeing if asked to describe would sound like this "long and wraps around the front of the cart, about 4-6 inches wide, protrudes away from said cart, blue, looks reinforced"... After that I realized I'd been shamed by his observations and how he could have seen the ball come loose on the first Mizzou TD and roll around under Green-Beckham instead of actually securing it, only the ref had a better angle and obviously we knew what he thought.

But that was nothing compared to his next call and What made me a true believer in Danielson's special abilities to see the unseen. The old onside-kick-it-into-the-other-guy's-wrist play. When Danielson called that one I was truly amazed in his complete lack of doubt. The play happened so fast and he was so committed to his initial verdict that there was just no telling him the coach didn't draw that one up like he'd seen so many times before.
The remarkable talent that he is, I love tuning in bc as long as he makes his claims numerous times over and over and over again with Verne, then the more he must be right.

CBS must have been pissed at Auburn for the Kick-Six last week to up end 'Bama, it meant all the dialog witten for Danielson and Lundquist was now completely useless. How the '13 Alabama team are on their way to destiny and the only team to do a 3-peat in college football, Saban and how he rates against other coaches last named Bryant, Belichick, Wooden, Christ.... The slow seductive trance that Verne and Danielson put me in as they lull my mind into believing Alabama were there or had at least moved on to greater things... Broken hearted that the greatest team of all time had lost at the last week CBS instead of righting new material just went with improv. Only helping flatten this year's matchup for SEC Champ team, as the CBS executives pouted. Grasping for anything relevant to avoid letting the commentators in the booth run wild on a hot mic, a few attempts at distracting us into believing this game was living up to its prime time billing- Cam Newton and the '10 was even brought up. They later wanted to get us down on the sidelines to give us a "feel for the action"... Instead we got disturbing images of Bo Jackson doing Cat Cow poses on the Red Zone sidelines. Oh we also got to hear about how Ohio State deserves to go to the National Championship after dominating scout teams around their immediate area... for two years! That has to mean something, right?! Anything, to keep us from talking about the two teams on the field and their quest to break all the rushing records held at the Georgia Dome.

This is true. Gus was as bad with MMA as Verne and Gary are with football. Verne is old but Gary is just arrogant as hell.

Auburn has had a hard time putting together 4 quarters too. They gave away that 4th quarter to Georgia, and nearly let them drive down the field after the lucky TD. They won the UGA game because they were lucky.

Their running game gets help from their use of cut blocks and holding. I saw multiple times last night where the O Line picked up a DL and held him on the ground, full on hugs. There is holding on every play, hardly ever called, but if you are only using a 3 DL set and don't adjust for the gaps, you will get burned.

Verne and Gary were ridiculous in their commentary, but they always are.

And we could have beaten Auburn. Or we could have lost miserably. It all depends on which team shows up on both sides of the ball.

Gus did the UCL final and had no idea what the hell he was talking about.

There were periods where he just went silent

I prefer silence to his constant shouting. Even my wife hates his soccer commentary.
