CBS's SEC Duo Lundquist & Danielson: Simply the Best!

by LeftyS
(Minnesota)

Part of what makes the college football game so exciting is the many excellent TV reporters who have presented the games. Over the years we have had great announcers such as Chris Schenkel, Keith Jackson, Bud Wilkinson, and Bill Fleming who did a great job of presenting these exciting games. Each of these greats had something very unique - a sense of personality and character that you don't see in today's reporters.

Many of those old school reporters are gone, but there remain two very special announcers on CBS who make the game of SEC football a very exciting thing to watch every week. And those great reporters are Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson.

Anyone who watches the SEC on CBS every autumn knows that these two gentlemen know the game of football and love it with all their heart. They bring a sense of enthusiasm, of fun, an exuberance, that today's reporters simply do not have.

Yes, today's reporters can fill up an encyclopedia with statistics. But they do not have an ability to provide an in-depth analysis of the game or its strategy the way Lundquist & Danielson do. Nor do they demonstrate the deep love of the game the way these old school reporters (like their predecessors) always did.

Thus for me, as a fan of the SEC, as one who loves college football, and as an old school enthusiast, there is no greater announcing combo than the Lundquist-Danielson duo. They are simply the best. I hope with all my heart that they will continue to work together for a long, LONG time!

Tune in to SEC on CBS. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Alabama vs. Missouri Game Coverage
by: Mizzou Fan

These two announcers were very biased in their coverage of the Alabama vs. Missouri football game last Saturday. Danielson gave Mizzou very little chance of even being capable of playing a good game against Alabama, let alone possibly winning. Lundquist wasn't much better when, near the end of the game, "We wish Missouri good luck in basketball."

Aside from the Missouri scoring plays, the only time either of these announcers said anything negative about Alabama was when Alabama's defensive lineman LaMichael Fanning performed a suplex on a Missouri ball carrier. Danielson stated that the CBS videotape of Fanning's illegal tackle should be made available to the SEC Commissioner and Fanning should receive a minimum punishment of a suspension.

Lundquist's only fair remarks came after a Missouri ball carrier was tackled out of bounds and suffered a whiplash to his neck and head and had to be backboarded and taken off the field by cart. Lundquist stated that their prayers and good wishes go out to the player and his family.

If this is what CBS calls unbiased football announcing, they need to rethink their definition.

CBS announcers stink
by: dawggal80

These guys are so biased we mute the sound when they are announcing the game. They consistently diss Georgia no matter who the Dawgs play. All I have to say to them tonight is, "Would you guys like some salt and pepper with your crow?"

Lundquist and Danielson simply the worst!
by: Anonymous

CBSSports Sec College Sports reporters Vern and Gary are extremely condescending while on air during the football games. Yet again,as I watch the Iron bowl, I have to hear each of them insult and belittle teams and continue to make incorrect calls. Not even the teams are playing on the current channel but others as they seem to appear to make un-intelligible comments. Your network is responsible for them. You should be ashamed of yourselves for allowing it to continue with incorrect calls and condescending comments. Aren't you suppose to be the caring network? What happened? Can you do anything or will you do anything?

Wish I could listen to someone else announce this SEC game. They need to put on cheerleader outfits and get their pompoms, they might as well yell Go Dawgs all broadcast long.

the dynamic duo

without a doubt, the two most biased announcers in college football. I can't believe the calls they make while broadcasting. Would rather turn the game off, than listen to these two. How about a new pair, or quit watching the sec games!!

Biased, Biased, Biased

Verne Lundquist must have a "man crush" on Nick Saban. These two (Lundquist and Danialson) are the absolute worst announcers in college football. Lundquist is 73 years old, constantly gets names wrong and his love affair with Alabama is legendary. I don't even listen when these two call games. It's literally sickening.

I thought I'd comment on how biased these two "best of the best" are, but looks like lots of others have beat me to it. But it's not all their fault...CBS is just as lame by continuing to employ them. Those "greats" of the past are just that..."of the past."
