#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.”

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)
