I was also underwhelmed by the product on the field from Alabama. Nothing seemed to gel, which isn't what Saban is used to considering he typically performs above standard in games where he has plenty of time to prepare. The offensive line (largely brand new) probably had a lot to do with the troubles, as I noticed numerous hurries by McCarron and Yeldon seemed to have trouble getting through the LOS. But in open space outside the tackle box, everything else was typical Bama. The defense looked stifling, and obviously special teams were a win.
Almost feel guilty saying that a 35-10 victory wasn't good enough.
The line is going to need to improve for the team to have success this season.
