If you, like many college football fans, tuned into the Week 1 tilt between Clemson and Georgia expecting to see some offensive fireworks, you probably went to bed disappointed.

However, just because the game ended in a 10-3 final score and both offenses struggled, it does not mean there are no lessons to take away from the game.
