It was announced on Wednesday that former Alabama head coach Nick Saban has joined ESPN as a "College GameDay" analyst and Ben Maller isn't exactly excited about it.

Ben Maller: "Charles Barkley does not need to look over his shoulder and worry about Nick Saban taking his place on the mantle as one of the great broadcasters. Nick Saban will provide store-brand commentary. He'll give you the meat and potatoes, no appetizers. I've seen Saban on TV before and he's just not to my taste buds...I don't see Saban as an entertainer, he just doesn't move the needle."
