Coding Error Made LSU’s Online Apparel Shop Feature All Alabama Gear

As if a rematch between LSU and Alabama for the BCS National Championship game needed any added buzz surrounding it.  As you know, the SEC rematch was made official on Sunday night, much to the dismay of many fans who don’t believe in allowing a rematch regardless of the circumstances.  Just a few hours after the game was announced, a computer coder made a small mistake on LSU’s website.  What was originally thought to be the job of a hacker is now believed to be merely human error, but LSU’s online store was briefly transformed into Roll Tide city last night.  Check out this picture that Darren Rovell shared with us:

Let the games begin.  Though many will argue that Alabama already had their shot at the Tigers, I think the BCS committee got this one right.  We showed you some interesting notes on the voters earlier, and while it was a tough call after Oklahoma State demolished Oklahoma, there was nothing that could stand in the way of the rematch.  Until Saturday night, even Mike Gundy thought the Crimson Tide deserved another shot.  Out of every one-loss team, it’s tough to argue that the one-loss team who lost to the No. 1 team in the country by three points isn’t deserving of the No. 2 spot.

    “Out of every one-loss team, it’s tough to argue that the one-loss team who lost to the No. 1 team in the country by three points on the road isn’t deserving of the No. 2 spot.”
    No wonder nobody pays attention to this pathetic site. You can’t even get simple facts straight. Alabama LOST AT HOME. NOT on on the road.

    And Alabama didn’t win the toughest conference in the nation this year. They didn’t even win their own division of the SEC. They don’t deserve anything.
