Editor's note: The season is over and the Alabama Crimson Tide are national champions yet again. But what happens next? TideNation examines the most pressing storylines of the offseason as the Tide gear up for another title defense.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It's not that Alabama's offense wasn't effective. It's not that it didn't have home-run capability before. But in the last year coach Nick Saban and offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier have taken it to another level. The Crimson Tide, once thought of as a "three yards and a cloud of dust" operation, are finding more and more big plays in the passing game.
How? Well, if you can't beat them, join them, right?
