CBS analyst Gary Danielson’s latest comment about Alabama is making more enemies than friends.
During the broadcast of the Iron Bowl, Danielson said that he would put a two-loss Alabama team in the College Football Playoff if it beats Georgia next Saturday.
Gary Danielsen says he'd put 2-loss Alabama in the playoff if they beat Georgia. Gary continues to be full of surprises.

Alabama is in a dog fight with Auburn on Saturday night as it’s only mustered three points deep into the fourth quarter.
If the Crimson Tide were to lose, they’d drop to 10-2 overall as they have struggled more than usual the last few weeks. They almost lost to the LSU Tigers on Nov. 6 (20-14) and then barely beat the Hogs from Arkansas last Saturday, 42-35.
It took a superhero effort from quarterback Bryce Young for Alabama to win that one as he finished with 559 yards through the air with five touchdowns.
The college football community had a lot of reactions to Danielson’s comment and a lot of them centered around him not knowing what he’s talking about.
Alabama is scoreless through 3Q against a 6-5 Auburn and Gary still can’t help himself 🙄 https://t.co/qFIYEoVhQ5

To be fair, he would also have a 3 loss Alabama as the 2 seed.
