    Heard someone on Twitter suggests Mr. Classy himself, Barrett Jones. Smart guy, knows the X's and O's, no doubt. And isn't he already working ESPN radio anyway?

    Great suggestion! My personal early favorite.

    Note: GMac would probably be better. But as others have pointed out, no way he gives up airtime on ESPN for this job.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    I know alot of Bama fans don't like GMac, which I can't really figure out, except for the fact he maybe tries too hard not to be a Bama homer and it comes off he doesn't still love us.

    But, IMO, GMac is on his way to be one of ESPN's top color analysts so I imagine there's more money, prestige and career there.

    Tyler Watts was the color man with Chris Stewart on play-by-play, when the University would have pay-per-view games that were not broadcast on network. Watts also does a good job with analyzing and breaking down plays in the post game call-in show. I would love to see him get the promotion.
    I feel more like I do now than I did awhile ago.

    Barrett Jones would be great. Tyler Watts would be great.

    But someone mentioned an AWESOME personality, another former center - Roger Shultz! That guy would be THE BOMB. He was on the radio in Mobile some years ago and he was ON FIRE! HIGHLY Entertaining and Very knowledgeable.
    He'd be awesome in the booth for UA football.

    Roger would be Kenny 2.0, and being honest, would probably be more entertaining even than Mr. Stabler. The question is if that's what CTSN listeners want? I am not really sure it is.

    It won't happen because he's an Aub, but I wouldn't mind Cole Cubelic getting the job; his analysis is always first rate.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I 2nd this. I'm a big fan of Cole and I'm pretty sure I've seen people call him a Bama fan despite the fact that he played at Auburn

    I'll throw big Mike Johnson's name in the hat. Enjoy his Bama podcasts.

    They had GMac on local Bham radio today and he said while flattered he won't be taking the job. He is doing a lot of great things with ESPN and ABC on TV and he is concentrating on this. He did say you never say never and one day.......

    Mine in order would be Barrett Jones, Tyler Watts, Mike Johnson. Savage was very knowledgeable and will be missed. I think Barrett brings some very good knowledge also.

    Leaves one of the best color announcing jobs in the country, and in the process leaves Saban, who he's known since he was an analyst for the Browns while Saban was there.

    Packs up to move to Phoenix for a minor league job.

    That's a lot of major life change in a short period of time. Hope everything's OK.
    Maybe health...?
