This came about because you got butthurt that people said something negative about Bama, it seems like you didn't even care what was said and you just reacted.
The fact that there are 3 new starters on the OL, all that matters is a W, etc etc doesn't really do much to contest the idea that the offense wasn't too impressive in week 1 and definitely didn't look as strong as last year. The stats aspect I can ride with that it doesn't always tell the whole story and when it comes down to it a W is all that matters...for THAT game but you can't just disregard those stats when they just didn't look good. But it is only one game and maybe VT, particularly their D, is much better than everyone thought but they did a pretty good job against a Bama offense that didn't look like it has in its NC years. I'm sure it'll improve and the defense will pick up any shortcomings it might have but the point remains that while the defense and special teams score most definitely count, it doesn't mean that the offense can't be worse.
We're two weeks in and only one game in Bama's case, we all know by now that what happens to this point means nothing in determining the outcome of anything else this season. It's why I couldn't care less about Clemson being #3 right now, yeah the rankings make things fun for upsets and building excitement for games but that's about it. I haven't been able to watch every game but from what I've seen I don't know of any team other than Louisville (ACC! ACC!) that looks like they have a cakewalk to going undefeated. The winner of the Bama-A&M game is a clear favorite though. Everyone in the top 5 still has to face teams that are, for now, in the top 10-15.
