Twitter is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? What can go wrong with a platform where fans, former players, journalists, analysts, and every other form of human being can instantly express their opinion with the click of a button?
Well, a lot.
The confidence in Alabama’s demise was high before kickoff, as it always seems to be. It has to end at some point, right?
I don't understand the logic in putting Bama No. 1 right now. I'd have LSU, Clemson, FSU and OU ahead, based on what they have this second.
ESPN’s Heather Dinich couldn’t understand the logic in putting the most talented roster in the nation, and a program that has won four of the last seven national championships, at number one in a preseason poll. Or even in the top four. Instead, she chose two teams that lost their opener in OU and LSU.
Former USC wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson was also confident in his former team.
A rather uneventful first quarter went on, but it was clear relatively early that the Alabama defense would not give up much in the run game. In fact, former Alabama DB Cyrus Jones found it comical that the Trojans would even attempt to run.
They really think they're going to run the ball? Lol
Perhaps the worst take of the night was from former USC Tight End Alex Holmes, who thought Minkah Fitzpatrick receiving a testicular stomp was because the USC player “lost his balance.” He wasn’t joking.
