"Air Tide"

Major Applewhite pulled a two-fer last week with a 52-point Greg Davis-esque effort against a directional team and the verbal commitment of future star QB recruit Star Jackson.

As the Tide prepare to enter the meat of their schedule with the always challenging Vanderbilt Commodores, odds site is optimistic about the upcoming season:

Alabama’s offense should be explosive this year. They’ve already been given the nickname “Air Tide” by some media pundits.


Major Applewhite is the new offensive coordinator. The former Texas QB, just 28 years old, had many offers for the same position after his success at Rice a year ago, LSU among them. He chose Bama, perhaps because he was named after former Crimson Tide All-American RB Major Ogilvie.

(Applewhite has his detractors, though. Check out the humorous website


Alabama will be undervalued in the pointspread based on last year’s results, but that’s what we’re looking for... Alabama will be much improved this year, both straight up and against the spread. Be sure to play them on the moneyline when they are in the underdog role.

Well written article.
