The opening week of the football season comes to an end later tonight with the Virginia Tech-Georgia Tech game. While there is still one game remaining, here are five observations from the games already in the books around the country.
Alabama Is Good. Really Good.
A lot of the focus has gone on Michigan in the aftermath of the opening game blowout in Dallas. Yes, Michigan struggled, and they were in way over their heads against the defending national champs. But, credit an Alabama team that appears to have reloaded yet again. T.J. Yeldon, Jalston Fowler, and Eddie Lacy accounted for 209 yards on the ground and 2 touchdowns. Dee Millner moved from nickleback to starting CB and was dominant on Roy Roundtree all night, including 1 interception. The Tide’s front 7 was all over the place and never let Denard Robinson get anything going on the ground, turning him into a passing quarterback. It’s just one game, and we still don’t know just how good this Michigan team is, but it would appear that Alabama is not going to miss a beat in their bid to win a third title in four years.
