I think the hate for Gary is really misplaced anger for Verne and his mistakes. It has become Verne and Gary suck rather than just Verne.
I'll agree with this. I'm just not a fan of the cbs broadcast at all. Verne is terrible, and his rambling really distracts from the game. The ridiculous commercials, especially during key points of the game.
Danielson does have a habit of fixating on a particular player. When Tebow was at uf, every game they called had a "he looks like Tim Tebow" moment. Hell, that continued for years after Tebow graduated.
