If Eli shows the kind of energy it will take to carry the show it may be ok. I think at times he sounds like he's just going through the motions. I think a more natural fit would be Jay Barker and Stan White. The problem with Jay is he's got this too cool for school attitude toward Alabama now. I think it stems from him wanting to appear above the Bama fanatic crowd. He might be trying to impress Sarah or trying to appeal for a more national job.
Eli would probably bring great guests to the show, because he's a very respected guy nationally. However, I stopped listening to terrestrial radio about four years ago and thus will likely never hear the show.
I would have preferred Roger Schultz to Eli. I do not mind Eli as a play-by-play guy, but he seems like he would be really dry on a morning show. Need somebody willing to stir the pot from the Alabama side to keep things interesting and Eli cannot really be that guy as a University employee. Roger and Stan worked together before on the "In the Trenches" show on Sunday afternoons and I always thought it was pretty good radio.
