The Joe Gaither Show on BamaCentral: Episode 8, May 31, 2023

By Joe Gaither,


When Alabama head football coach Nick Saban speaks, the college football universe stops and listens.

That's exactly what we did on Wednesday on The Joe Gaither Show on BamaCentral, as we discussed what exactly Saban was saying at the SEC spring meetings on Tuesday.

Saban publicly adjusted his stance on the 9-game SEC schedule, but why?

The seven-time national champion advocated instead for the SEC to adopt a policy that saw its member schools only schedule Power 5 opponents.

Additionally, Saban spent time discussing parity in college football as he continuously longs for everyone to be on the same playing field. Is that even possible in today's landscape of college football?

We paused the college football discussion to take a trip to Oklahoma City where the Alabama Crimson Tide softball program prepares for the Women's College World Series.

This is the 14th trip for head coach Patrick Murphy, can he work some coaching magic and bring home the Tide's second national title in program history?

Alabama is quite familiar with its opening game opponent, the No. 4 seeded Tennessee Volunteers . Should the Tide emerge victorious they will likely matchup with the premiere program in the sport, the No. 1 seeded Oklahoma Sooners .

Finally, our episode wrapped up with some big basketball news. The Tide saw its second veteran guard in two days make an announcement that they would be returning to school.

Head coach Nate Oats and the Tide faithful are proud to welcome back Jahvon Quinerly for his sixth year of college.

The backcourt issues are now solved for Oats and company, however there remains a sizable hole in Alabama's 2023 front court.

We discuss a 6-foot-11 power forward that could transfer to Tuscaloosa and make an immediate impact.
