ATLANTA, GA - SEPTEMBER 02: Bo Scarbrough /

In a game that was labeled ‘The Greatest Opener of All Time,’ it certainly had its moments. It resulted in a 24-7 Alabama football victory over Florida State in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. People took to Twitter before, during and after the game.

The christening of the first college football game in the new stadium. The first-ever opening weekend 1/3 ranked matchup. SEC vs. ACC. This Alabama football game had more than its share of storylines. There were certainly more during the game and fans tweeted their thoughts. We selected the best ones out of the bunch and posted them right here, as we will do every week during the season.

First, as fans approached the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium and got their seats, they were in awe.

It was really awesome to get to see this stadium in person. The stadium is fairly intuitive and you get a sense that is was built with the fan in mind. The pricing on concessions really helps bring people to the game instead of watching it on TV. In this writer’s mind, it was better than AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

Yes, Alabama football still sucks at kicking. Despite the change at place kicker for Alabama, they ended up three-for-five in Field Goals. Even JK Scott, who has been nearly automatic, had one punt that didn’t go so well.

As bad as special teams were for Alabama, the Tide did have its moments in the game. Blocking the field goal at the end of the first and the blocked punt were keys to the Alabama football win.

And now, a few other random tweets from that game:

Tweets that were not related to the game, but worth mentioning.

Speaking of Florida. If it wasn’t for the Gators, the SEC would have been perfect. There is NO depth on that offense at all.

Good for UAB. Hope it keeps up. Having the Blazers playing football is good for Birmingham.
