#1 Alabama rolls in season opener

It was a good start to the season as Alabama rolled to win to launch the 2010 campaign.

AP: “I was really sort of pleased with the effort, the attitude, the intensity, the way our team was ready to play and focused on what they need to do to try and create an identity for themselves,” Saban said. “I thought we really worked to try to dominate the competition.”

MORE: Julio Jones made the most dramatic play with a diving, one-handed grab for a 29-yard touchdown from backup quarterback A.J. McCarron early in the second quarter. He finished with six catches for 93 yards and gained 13 yards on an end around to set up the Tide’s first touchdown.

Jones said it was the best catch of his career.

“I’ve made some great catches in practice, but not in a game,” he said.

Guard Barrett Jones was even more impressed.

“Honestly, I went crazy,” he said. “That was one of the greatest plays I’ve ever seen. I ran down the field and hit him in the chest. Wow, that was unbelievable. ” (read the entire AP game story below)

    Will reserve judgement until 11pm next Saturday. While the passing game sparkled from the start, that ‘terrible’ team held us to less than 50 yards rushing for more than a quarter. That concerns me. But a least the defense didn’t give up 300+ yards and 23 points to an FCS team! Bwaa Haww Haww! RTR!

    Well, Bama played a lot of new players, glad to see the backups get quality playing time. Probably won’t have another chance during this next stretch of games. So it is really hard to see what we have until next week. But I am impressed so far. That is the way you are supposed to be a lower division team. I am glad the days of playing to the competition are over.
