The Crimson Tide totally dominated the Wolverines on Saturday. The much anticipated matchup between two top ten teams from different conferences was a big disappointment, right?
Well, not so much. Yes, it was nice to see a matchup of two highly rated teams, but this game was highly over-hyped. Michigan was over-rated, without it's top RB, and over-rated. Sure the Wolverines are coming off of a 10-2 season and an impressive bowl win, but they are nowhere near a top echelon team.
Alabama is coming off of a BCS bowl trophy season and is rebuilding or reloading on defense (whichever term you prefer). Also their offense is much more experienced in all facets except RB. And have we mentioned that Michigan was over-rated?
There is way too much football yet to be played to anoint the Tide as the favorites to repeat. So in the words of ESPN's Lee Corso, "Not so fast, my friend".
