Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE
The nation learned that Nick Saban's Alabama squad is poised to make a run at becoming the first team to repeat as national champions since Nebraska in 1995.

After dispatching No. 8 Michigan by a score of 41-14 in its season opener, No. 2 Alabama served notice to the nation that the discussion for the country’s top team should include—and perhaps begin—with the Crimson Tide. 

Alabama jumped out to a 31-0 lead in the first half and cruised to a rather easy victory in the only matchup of the young season’s opening weekend to pit two top 10 teams against one another.    

Nick Saban’s club appeared dominant in all three phases and made a team that enters the 2012 season as the favorite to capture the Big Ten look average at best.  

What else did Tide fans and observers around the country find out about the Tide? 

Here are five things we learned from Alabama’s season-opening victory over Michigan.
