We can finally take a breather from all the big games and surprises of Week 1!
South Carolina began their season on a high note, showing why they will be a true contender in the East. I enjoyed the spectacle and hype of the Vandy-Ole Miss shocker! What a way to bring in Southeastern Conference play with two teams battling to the finish with great plays to end a game! The return of Bo Wallace and first-team wideout Jordan Matthews did not disappoint!
The teams we thought would be rebuilding such as LSU and Tennessee went out and played pretty well against decent opponents. Then there was Alabama—who everybody believes to be invincible—showing a few weaknesses on opening day against Virginia tech.
There was a Johnny football sighting in the second half of the Texas A&M game and he played pretty well throwing three touchdowns. But he was also benched because of unsportsmanlike behavior while on the field. Will his summer of antics catch up with him sometime this season? Only time will tell.
To end Saturday night was the highly anticipated game between Georgia and Clemson. This game was billed as an offensive explosion and it surely did not hold back any punches. The playmakers were in full effect on both sides of the ball, but Clemson simply made more plays than the Dawgs to come out on top with the win. They were led by their senior signal caller Tajh Boyd, who looked as if he was making a strong point for the Heisman race.
Overall it was a great weekend for college football and I am looking forward to the rest of the year being as dramatic as the first.
