Clemson whips out the 'Pistol'

Orange and White has another good spring practice report, this one focusing on a new wrinkle possibly coming to Clemson's offense -- the "Pistol":

For the uninitiated, the “Pistol” formation is a variation on the shotgun offense made famous by Nevada and coach Chris Ault. Where shotgun offenses put the quarterback five to six yards behind the line of scrimmage, the Pistol places him four yards behind the line, with a tailback placed directly behind him, as opposed to beside him, as in the shotgun.

Let's load that sucker up and squeeze off a few next fall.
