For the 17th consecutive season, the Alabama Crimson Tide defeated a season opening opponent courtesy of a 51-14 trouncing of the Louisville Cardinals.

During Tuesday's edition of The Blitz, DC from Golden Shores Productions relayed his observations from Alabama's season opening victory over Louisville.

In the game, sophomore Tua Tagovailoa made his first start as the Crimson Tide's quarterback.

DC began his assessment of Tagovailoa with his overall thoughts on the sophomore's performance.

"I think Tua did a really good job. I think he really brought an upper level in our passing game. I think his passes were pinpoint on." DC said.

The Golden Shores Productions analyst noted how locked in Tagovailoa appeared in pregame warmups.

"I looked at him during warmups. He looked like he was dialed in, zoned in. He looked like he was ready to play. He came out and just showed that." DC said.

Later in his analysis of the quarterback position, DC weighed the similarities of Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts while also highlighting a key characteristic that he believes separates Tagovailoa from Hurts.

"Tua has the ability to keep his eyes down field and looking for guys that are breaking open on the ball." DC said.

DC and Martin Houston later discussed their thoughts on the special teams and the secondary including individual outings for Deionte Thompson, Trevon Diggs and Xavier McKinney.
