On Friday I posted a list of five things that Bama needed to improve on from week one. Now that game two is in the books, I'll take a look at how Bama did at improving those things.
A short week that sure felt long. The home opener is today, and that’s when, for me, the season really feels like it starts. As cool as the Dome is, I’ll still get those long post-season ending chills when the Million Dollar Band strikes up “Yeah Alabama” just prior to kickoff in Bryant-Denny.
Good times… News and links after the jump:
Don Kausler of the Birmingham News has posted an interesting tid bit about some travel problems for FIU. Read the story here:

Well, Oregon and Georgia LeGaretted my first week picks. Not a ton of separation between the four of us – we’ve got two at 3-2 and two at 4-1. I don’t suspect this week’s crop of games will tease out much difference either; it’s not exactly a barn-burner slate.
Let down. Those two words have been thrown around this week after Alabama’s big 34-24 win over Virginia Tech. After beating Clemson last year only to struggle in a 20-6 win over Tulane, perhaps that phrase should be bandied about this week as the Tide prepares for the home opener against Florida International.
While FIU hasn’t played yet this season, I would definitely take last year’s Green Wave team over this year’s Golden Panther team. FIU has only been playing football since 2002 but a lot of experts see them as a young South Florida, a young program on the rise.
This week’s edition of In the Film Room will be a short one since there isn’t any film on FIU as of yet. Keep reading for some of the key Golden Panthers to look for as well as what they might try to do against the Tide.
After taking a look at the offense and defense for the week, it's now time to take a look at what Bama needs to improve on the most from week one to week two. You have probably noticed that I didn't do a special teams breakdown, but I feel pretty certain that will be covered here.
If you just saw the final score of the Alabama vs. Virginia Tech game, you might think that the Tide defense struggled. After all, Virginia Tech scored 24 points, a total reached by only three teams in 2008.
The reality is that the Bama defense was dominant.
