The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer's good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.

After attracting awe by donning a stylish dress to the Crimson Tide’s 2008 game against Clemson, University of Alabama grad Shena Birdsong realized that there were few boutiques catering to the tradition of wearing snazzy formal attire to football games. After setting up shop in 2009, Birdsong began selling cute houndstooth and crimson dresses to the Alabama faithful. Her wares proved popular, even among rivals, and she quickly expanded her collection to serve fans of fellow SEC members Auburn, LSU, Georgia, and Florida. Earning the praises of the Huntsville Times and WVUA, Gameday Girl Stuff’s collection of scarves, dresses, boots, and accessories is specifically designed for showing off at the stadium on autumn Saturdays and cutting a stylish figure in the off-season. Alumni proudly show their colors with orange-and-blue clutches and winter coats of red and black, or dress their up-and-coming fans in collegiate-color onesies and booties that ensure that a child’s first words will be “offense wins games, but defense wins championships."
