2009 Alabama Game Analysis: Hokies not Sharp Enough to Beat Tide

It was a tough game with a disappointing finish and there are a lot of things
that need to be improved, but there were also some positives to take away as
well. It is easy to look at the lack of offensive production and conclude that
another frustrating year is ahead. It is also easy to look at all the missed
tackles and big plays given up by the defense and wonder if expectations are too
high on that side of the ball.

Admittedly, I had some of those concerns leaving the Georgia Dome on Saturday
night. But after powering through the replay several times, I feel better about
the potential of this team and what lies ahead for the rest of the season.

After getting outgained 498 to 155 in total yardage, how could I possibly
feel better after watching that kind of domination over and over? Let’s take a
deeper look.
