Verne and Gary

Let me hear your Verne and Gary stories if you watched the game on CBS. I don’t get to hear the TV commentary during Ole Miss games. I know that Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson generate a lot of different opinions. SEC football in Mississippi has been a big story this year. What did you guys think of their commentary on the two teams during the game?

    I was very disappointed especially with Danielson. I could not count all of the times that he referred to us as Miss. State. And since he did it so many times I am assuming that the producers did not correct him during the game so that he would stop making the same mistake. You could tell it was his first egg bowl 🙁

      That’s interesting. First rule from J School is get the names right. I know it’s a rule I’ve violated before, but I work at it.

    I also noticed a surprisingly high number of times the schools’ names were mixed up.

    I don’t think they actually watch the game, or rarely do. They are baffled by plays that are apparent to everyone who is actually paying attention. They spend an inordinate amount of time discussing things that have nothing to do with the game. I would much prefer to listen to the radio broadcast with the TV sound muted, but the 7 second delay on the TV feed makes that nearly impossible to endure. These guys are over the hill, and CBS needs to demote them to a small regional broadcast – not the SEC primary game.

    school names mixed up over and over, Danielson is arrogant, glad to have the cbs coverage but sure hate the guys who cover it, (hate loose word, don’t hate personally just hate they are covering game)
