TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Year 1 couldn't have gone any better for Doug Nussmeier. He left a seven-win Washington program to take the same position as Alabama's offensive coordinator, and only won both the SEC title and a BCS National Championship in his first season. Everything went right and the Crimson Tide improved in points per game, yards per game and passing efficiency.

UA Athletic PhotographyOC Doug Nussmeier will face new challenges in his second season at Alabama.
Year 2 in Tuscaloosa may not be quite so easy, though. Alabama's feature tailback, the majority of its offensive line and its three-year starter at tight end are all gone. Nussmeier's goal, however, won't be any different than the day he started the job.
