    Re: Phil Savage Steps Down as UA Radio Color Analyst

    I personally would have no problem with Cole getting the gig, and I think he'd understand that he would have to represent the Tide in the job despite his background as an Auburn football player. However, I think he's got a good thing going with the 3 Man Front radio show and his gigs with ESPN and SECN, so I don't see him giving that up.

    I think it is overlooked a bit as to how much prep Savage did for CNS, and I wonder if the expectation will be the same for the new guy. JPW could probably do a good job with that but I'm just guessing here.

    What about Mike Johnson?

    I want a Bama man, for sure (and there are several fine candidates). Not to whine and complain about every call that doesn't go Bama's way (like an aub), but to call it honestly and to clearly enjoy the hell out of it when Bama is kicking butt.

    I don't think it will be anybody who is so specifically a "rival" nor do I think it will be McElroy either. McElroy is probably on the fast track to doing the color for the primetime ESPN games within the next decade. He's following on a path to be the next Blackledge or Herbstreit. He could probably be the color guy for CTSN Football for the rest of his working life but he's chasing the commanding heights of this whole field right now.

    If Joe Namath takes it I'll eat an Auburn hat (cake - or part of it at least). He's happy right where he is.

    I haven't heard Jones in some time. It's possible he has "grown" and honed his skills, but I wouldn't know it.

    Also haven't heard Johnson or Krauss that I've known it.

    Tyler Watts might be the safe or logical choice.

    Reese Davis would be an interesting choice but I doubt he would take it if offered. He has a sweet gig.

    I was on another site reading about the new commitments and surprising to me was that in the few comments most support was for Barrett Jones, who I think would be a great choice as I mentioned earlier. But they also mentioned Shawn Alexander, who I had not thought of. He is very articulate and was one of the very few Bama people with a national platform who was enthusiastic in his support of Alabama during the down years. He never wavered. That doesn't mean he would be a good analyst, but it matters. But he is very articulate apart from that. I hope they will consider him.

    Tyler Watts has been around CTSN for awhile. I bet he gets it unless Byrne or Saban has someone else in mind. I think Saban's guidance was how we ended up with Phil Savage a decade ago.

    Man, I'll miss Phil. He added so much insight to what we were watching on the field. There are several good ones out there to take his place but hard to replace him. I like Tyler. He is a class act on and off the radio.

    Dang..I hate that & hate to see Phil leave TTown but, as we learned ovevr the course of Coach Saban's tenure at Bama..No matter the situation or who leaves, "The Proces" will keep rolling collecting NC's along the way , cause Coach Saban always has a plan A B & C in place, making sure all bases are covered in any situation big or small..
