If the idea was simple, so was the way former Nevada coach Chris Ault went about mapping it out. White tape on the floor of the locker room. A rolled-up towel to simulate a football. And out of that came an offense that could win the San Francisco 49ers a Super Bowl.
As the countdown continues to gameday, the focus has shifted from sibling rivalries to gameplans for the opposing teams. Baltimore’s biggest challenge rests with stopping the highly touted pistol formation that the 49ers have run to perfection in 2012. The Ravens will seek to shut it down in the Super Bowl.
