‘Bama fans are still on Cloud Nine following the Crimson Tide’s beatdown of LSU in last year’s BCS title game. On top of that, Alabama’s 2012 media guide claims a win over the Bayou Bengals in the regular season as well.
A recap of the team’s regular season schedule lists the result of its Nov. 5 defensive slugfest with LSU as a win when, in fact, the Tigers prevailed 9–6 at Bryant Denny Stadium. This in spite of the fact that, right above the regular season results, is the team’s correct 2011 record (12–1 overall, 7–1 in SEC play).
Alabama does have a reputation for exaggerating things — five of the 14 national titles they claim came prior to the wire-service polling era — but not all-out lying.
Maybe this is just a way to get a vibrant Reddit discussion going prior to the kickoff of the 2012 season. The exchanges between ‘Bama and LSU fans there are pretty entertaining.
