What new devilry is Saban cooking up now?

Over at SB Nation I speculate on how Brian Daboll, former New England Patriots TE coach, might tweak the Alabama offense now that he’s the man in Tuscaloosa.

I can’t help but notice that the Tide have been stockpiling TEs for a few years now (hard not to notice when they keep stealing them from Texas), and the nastiest thing I can imagine from their offense would be to utilize spread TE formations to complement their existing QB run game.

Jim Harbaugh has been able to help out a ton of only moderately talented passing QBs in his career with some of his TE-heavy spread sets. Get some of that going with the normal QB run stuff and Alabama could have a nasty formula unlike anything we’ve see so far in college football.
