Know Your Enemy: Week 1 Review

No big shocks as far as results go this week though I think some of us were a bit surprised by the way some teams played. I don't think anyone expected Georgia to dominate Oklahoma State so thoroughly, nor did many people expect Auburn to be trailing Kansas State with four minutes left in the game. Additionally, I'm not surprised that Clemson won, but I am surprised that FSU didn't even bother to show up in the first half. Here's a snapshot look at what our opponents did this week:
