    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.

    Eli discusses the issue in general:

    Reese Davis? Seriously? Why would he got from hosting College Game Day with ESPN to, by comparison, small town radio?

    I agree, but he would be an interesting choice and would probably do a fine job. With his gig I doubt anyone embarrasses themselves by asking. Just making conversation.

    Gotta agree! Roger is both entertaining and knowledgeable...

    Exactly!!!

    Leaves the Senior Bowl in his hometown after several years in the chair, in a "mutual parting of the ways."

    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.
    I really like Phil Savage and enjoyed reading his latest book. I wish him well. I just wonder if maybe he made someone mad somewhere along the line and that's why this is happening? I sure hope not. It will be interesting to see who replaces him.

    Just an observation. But there's at least been a rational discussion here about they hypothetical possibility of hiring a booger-eater to be the voice of Alabama football
    I don't see it EVER happening, but if it did, I think most of our fans WOULD at least give the guy a fair shake.

    BUT -
    Can you even begin to imagine the holy "HECK" that would erupt down there, if they even suggested in passing that they MIGHT consider Tyler Watts or JPW replace Stan White on their radio team????
    Oh My Goodness! It would be the meltdown of the CENTURY!!!! LOL!!!

    I could only make it ~4 minutes in! - Honestly, I'd never listen to another Alabama radio broadcast if our announcers were so blatantly unfair and blatantly biased in EVERYTHING they said. According to Stan, the boogs have never lost a game - the ref's have just stolen some of their wins from them.

    Yes, I want our announcers to be Alabama "fans" and pull for out team, but I MOSTLY want them to TELL THE TRUTH about what's really happening in the game. I'd be SO disappointed if they were outright liars and utter "Homers" like Stan and that other guy- whatever his name is.

    Yet for the boogs, overt Bias seems to be a requirement for any commentator on any barn sport....

    Or how about this WHOPPER!?!?!!? "I defy you to find an iron bowl* where Alabama has more penalty yards than aubarn."
    2017 - Penalties UA 9-65 yds - boogs 4-40 yds (boogs won)
    2016 - UA 4-28 - barn 4-19
    2015 (The game in the video!) UA 7-65 - barn 8-62
    2013 - UA 6-45 - barn 3-21 (boogs won)
    2010 - UA 7-40 - barn 2-30 (boogs won)
    2007 - UA 6-38 - barn 3-35 (boogs won)

    In 6 of the last 11 meetings (including all 4 boog wins), Alabama has suffered MORE PENALTY YARDS than the booger-eaters.

    * Hasn't BEEN an "Iron Bowl" since 1988. Sorry, Stan......

    Maybe Eli got upset because Phil called the touchdown before he did(blue font).
