One college football Saturday is in the books, which means we’ve seen every team that is considered “elite” play one football game. For most people, one game isn’t enough to totally form an opinion on a team and whether it’s overrated or underrated. However, ESPN’s Joey Galloway has seen enough of the Alabama Crimson Tide to bestow upon them the title of the most overrated team in college football.

It’s probably a bit premature to call Alabama the most overrated team in America, as it won by ten points against an improved West Virginia team despite breaking in a new quarterback. It also is talented all over the field, and the Crimson Tide features one of the best coaching staffs in college football. While it wasn’t a convincing 56-3 win over the Mountaineers, it’s hard to declare the Crimson Tide the most overrated team in the nation after just one game.
