Jim McElwain: Watching Bama on film makes you 'violently ill'



Florida Gators coach Jim McElwain is understandably quite impressed with No. 1 Alabama, whom he'll face in Saturday's SEC championship game in Atlanta.

A few excerpts from McElwain's teleconference Sunday night:

"There's only been a couple times so far that I've become violently ill watching them."

On how he can give the offense confidence against the best defense in the country: "I think first thing you do is don't show them the film. Those guys are pretty good."

"There isn't really a weakness on that team as you look at it. You see the guys playing on their special teams. I mean, they'd be starting at most other places. Yet that's what great programs do, is they just kind of keep reloading."
