  2. No one told me GuJo was calling the Louville-Kentucky game!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Kellogg: "Louisville's been a bit sloppy and untidy."

    ReplyDelete
  4. Blackburn on the Radar defense: "...As opposed to the Hawkeye or Hot Lips Houlihan defense."

  5. Kentucky blowing Louvulle + USF-Clemson is as boring as it gets = Me taking a walk and then grabbing lunch.

  6. Clearing 1 inch of snow out from the Sun Bowl isn't the same as clearing 20 inches from Lincoln Financial Field. #CaptainObvious

    ReplyDelete
  7. Danielson: "Within two years, both of these teams will be in a BCS bowl game."

    ReplyDelete
  8. Danielson on Cris Collinsworth's kid: "He's faster than the dad."

  9. "He's faster than the dad."-Danielson on Cris Collinsworth son.

  10. How disgusted do you think Gary is that he has to call the Sun Bowl and there are no SEC teams in the game?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Of course Gary Slive has to bring up Julio Jones when comparing Michael Floyd...

    ReplyDelete
  12. That Miami receiver is bundled up like he's playing this game in Edmonton.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Verne: "It's always good to have Tim Brandu working on a Holiday."

    ReplyDelete
  14. Verne: "I misspoke."

    You're just old, Verne.

  15. There's the Jacory Harris we all know.

    ReplyDelete
  16. How many games has Tommy Rees has started and Danielson is comparing him to Phillip Rivers, Kosar, Brees? Yikes.

    I forgot that in lieu of an SEC team, a CBS college football crew will hype up Notre Dame.

    ReplyDelete
  17. If Notre Dame win, will Tracy have communion on air? #CammyCamJuice

    ReplyDelete
  18. 21-0 Irish.
    Since The U's quit, could CBS just run every Pomplamoose Hyundai commercial instead the rest of the game? #LessTorture

  19. So when does Harris rip off his Jersey and reveal an ND one underneath, while Jim Ross yells, THAT'S LOU HOLTZ'S MUSIC!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. At least Clemson is showing some late life.

    Hahaha at Carter Blackburn catching himself while he was advocating Clemson "go for 2," down 31-25.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jacory Harris continues to find his favorite target, Harrison Smith.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @RJBO: That actually wasn't Harris.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My attempt at a bad joke got picked off....

    The College of Charleston is running the Vols out of their own gym, up by 17 midway through the 2nd half.

    ReplyDelete
  24. We could get a Montana sighting in the Sun Bowl? Yes please!

    ReplyDelete
  25. how much do I have to contribute to get a Pammy/Gary Danielson pairing?

    /sarcasm'd

    ReplyDelete
  26. Winter Classic start time now 5:00 ET (2:00 PT). They are morons for wanting to go up against the Rose Bowl. Wait til 8:30 to compete with the Fiesta Bowl.

    Also, Eagles vs. whomever is being reported as the NBC prime time game on Saturday night.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Danielson: "I know what you like to go and celebrate at halftime..."

    Verne: "I like to grab a hot dog or 2"

    if by hot dog you mean vodka shots...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Maybe it is the codeine cough syrup, but I see Gary Busey every time they show O'Leary.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Justin do you really want to piss off the Law & Order fans by starting the Winter Classic at 8?

    ReplyDelete
  30. When I took my brother to the Cancer center this week, they were playing 'Power of Love' by Huey Lewis. Most rocking Cancer center ever!

    ReplyDelete
  31. @ Kris: You do have a point.....

    ReplyDelete
  32. sorry. too busy celebrating the Orioles signing of Derrek Lee to comment....

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm going to take a nap. #IhavetogoapartytonighteventhoughIdon'twantto

  34. CBS Graphic: 12 straight plays without a turnover (longest streak of game)

    It's been reduced to that.

    ReplyDelete
  35. shouldn't CBS maybe hire someone to commentate who actually knows the rules of the game?

    ReplyDelete
  36. CBS pays Danielson to fluff, not have any actual knowledge.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Verne: "I swear (Tommy Rees) could've been one of the children in the Sound of Music."

    ReplyDelete
  38. Now there are reports the Winter Classic is being moved to 8:00 ET (5 PT). Smarter move. That Fiesta Bowl could be torture.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Danielson: "I'm sorry, I didn't see the other play clock."

    The SEC really approves this guy to do their Game of the Week?

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Justin thank god. i think that could be awesome under the lights

    ReplyDelete
  41. Whoa, I misread the first report. That was "Announcement on Winter Classic Start Time Will Come At 5:00 PM ET," not it will start at 5:00 ET.

  43. Maryland would have given Notre Dame a much better game

    ReplyDelete
  44. Verne before a Two and a Half Men promo: "I know this is one of your favorite shows..."
    Danielson: "What?" "You kinda outed me on this one."

    ReplyDelete
  45. Smart move by Keith taking a nap: UGA-UCF is tied at 3 near halftime, Minnesota and MSU are in a basketball slugfest (literally), and I can't take much more of Gary Danielson.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It's official. Winter Classic at 8 PM.

    ReplyDelete
  47. i hate when Notre Dame wins & especially when they run up the score.

    Hope everyone has a great New Year's Eve!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Danielson: " I had to thank Cam Newton, but I didn't know what to say, so I just copied what I wrote to Tebow..."

    ReplyDelete
  49. Danielson on a CBS staffer getting married today: "Guy'll do anything to avoid coming to El Paso, huh?"

    ReplyDelete
  50. I feel good. I took a nap and ate. Now I'm ready for a night of college football and hoops.
