Well it looks like the University of Alabama isn’t the place where you can buy Tide merchandise. Apparently an LSU website got in trouble for accidentally advertising Bama gear on their website.

At first it was thought that the site was hacked, but it was later found out that it wasn’t true.

According to CNBC's Sports Biz reporter Darren Rovell, the site wasn’t hacked. Rovell said via Twitter feed that he was told the site's misfortune was due to "human error."

Teamshop later apologized to LSU for their error:

"Early this morning, LSU fans may have noticed that part of LSU's official online store mistakenly displayed the Alabama Crimson Tide online store," stated Brian Swallow, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TeamFanShop. "This was the result of human error by a designer and was not the result of a hack by any outside party. At no time was customer information compromised. This error has since been fixed and the LSU Athletics official online store, www.LSUshop.net, is now being displayed properly. We apologize for the inconvenience, appreciate your patience, and look forward to the BCS Championship Game on January 9."

Teamshop has worked with LSU since 2005.
