The 2012 BCS National Championship game is creeping closer as each day passes and excitement is building for the match-up featuring the Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers. One of the top reasons for that excitement is due to hope that the offenses are able to do more than they did in the first game -- a chore that weighs heavily on the shoulders of Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain.
McElwain has already accepted the job as Colorado State's head coach for next season, but the coaching veteran will finish out his duties with 'Bama this week. The outgoing coach fielded questions from the media on Thursday with a sense of humor as his time as a member of the Crimson Tide ends.
The Crimson Tide coordinator was asked if Alabama's offense is pro style, according to ESPN's Joe Schad, to which he responded, "According to most of you guys we don't do anything."
Running back Trent Richardson backed McElwain up by calling him a genius, but it's likely that McElwain's legacy at Alabama will be decided based on the outcome of the title game and not on his running back's opinions.
