Jay Bilas, college basketball and NBA analyst for ESPN, joined Wimp and Barry Sanderson "Inside The Locker Room" Friday morning to discuss his impressions on Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide heading into the 2019 season.

"It was a wonderful experience for me," Bilas told Wimp and Barry about his recent visit to the University of Alabama. "I spent the whole day with the team and sat through meetings, my head was spinning. All the stuff they were trying to put in, the schemes and everything, but I really enjoyed it."

You can listen to Wimp and Barry's full conversation with Bilas in the video above, as Bilas describes what he enjoyed most about his visit, his early expectations heading into the 2019 season, and his thoughts on Alabama's men's basketball coach Nate Oats.

"The facilities are fantastic, they're actually going to be upgraded," Bilas told Wimp and Barry. "The attention to detail on performance, the idea that preparing themselves to be ready when they are on the field: their hydration, the way they eat, the way they take care of their bodies. Whatever it is they are top-shelf, and they preform at the highest level."
