It came as a surprise to everyone but Bama fans. The touted #1 defense, the hyped offense of Notre Dame. They were picked to win it all by the analysts and experts, who were astonished and back peddling quickly by the half-time shows. The cheers of "The SEC is overrated!" and "The SEC is going down this year!" quickly became "Can anyone stop these guys?!". Then there was the pre-game trash talk about cupcake schedules, to which I say, Alabama enjoyed it's serving of cupcake last night.
So let the pre-season hype begin. Who will it be? Who will unseat the mighty Crimson Tide? Will it be from within the SEC or will another conference finally put forth a worthy team? ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!
