LSU QB Jordan Jefferson criticizes offensive approach in title game

Friday February 10th, 2012

LSU starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson told an Atlanta radio station Thursday that the Tigers' offensive game plan was a major factor in the offense getting shut out in the BCS National Championship Game against Alabama, according to

"I definitely didn't expect for (it) to play like that," Jefferson told WCNN in Atlanta. "Alabama was a little bit more prepared than us. There was a lot of things that we should've did different to catch a rhythm on offense. To win a type of game like that, you've got to win all three phases -- offense, defense and special teams -- and we just didn't get over that hump to winning those phases. We kind of fell short in that game."

Jefferson also insinuated that the offense had several plays that they were prepared to use but did not, according to the report.
