For weeks the media had been hyping this game as the start of the Heisman run for Michigan quarterback Dernard Robinson,if you watched the game when they showed Dernard in the starting offensive players he looked so excited wobbling his head back and forth and smiling, I swear he looked like the rapper Lil John after he had drank a gallon of pimp juice anyway it was so bad that boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. bet three million dollars that Michigan would beat Alabama, but someone forgot to tell that to Dee Millinar and the awesome Alabama defense,they shut Dernard down,they shut Michigan down period.
Robinson wound up going 11 of 26 for 200 yards and 1 td and 2 interceptions.
He also was held to 27 rushing yards on 10 carries, that won't get it done if you are truly in the Heisman hunt.
Michigan didn't have their best running back Fitz Troussant but do you really think that would've made a difference I don't.
I think the difference in the game was coach Nick Saban and all his assistant coaches, they lost a lot of talent to the NFL last year and he just reloads and takes the players to another level, the perfect example is T.J. Yeldon, he made it look so easy averaging over 10 yards per carry as he went for 111 yards on one of the best defenses in the country.
I think Michigan will rebound after this loss but it won't be easy they lost Blake Countless for the season due to a torn ACL.
I was impressed and proud of Alabama's offensive line play,they made it easy for A.J McCarron, he had 2 touchdowns and 199 yards in the game,also Barrett Jones,last years Outland trophy winner moved to center and with D.J Fluker & Chance Womack I have a feeling Alabama is gonna score a lot of points this year.
Don't forget Eddie Lacy & Jawlston Fowler if T.J Yeldon don't get you then they will, if you don't believe me just ask anyone from Michigan.
As long as Nick Saban is coaching at Alabama they will be a top team,like it or not he is that good.
Also I think that Alabama should be #1 after the win against a top ten team like Michigan,USC won but hey they weren't playing a top ten team.
