Alabama Iron Bowl Fallout: LSU-Slanted Website Sells T-Shirts Making Fun of Crimson Tide's Last-Second Loss to Auburn (VIDEO)
Even in the cutthroat T-shirt business, what comes around goes around for the University of Alabama football program.
Two days after Auburn's improbable 34-28 victory over the Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl, extramustard.si.com reported that an LSU-slanted website, readmyshirt.com, is selling T-Shirts that make fun of Alabama coach Nick Saban for trying the 57-yard field goal on the game's final play after officials put one second back on the clock on a replay review of the previous play.

The missed field goal allowed Auburn's Chris Davis to return the ball 109 yards for the game-winning touchdown.
The T-shirt reads, "Daylight Saban Time" with a clock inside a goalpost and the time showing one second until 3 p.m. The caption under the goalpost says, "Set your clock back 1 SECOND" with a smaller caption underneath: "Then throw your team under the bus."
With the scored tied at 28 and seven second left in the game, Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon took a draw play 24 yards and ran out of bounds when the play clock hit 0:00. Officials looked at video replay and determined that he ran out of bounds before the final second ticked off.
The T-shirt follows an Alabama shirt that mocked Oregon's original T-shirt message. Early in the season when the Ducks were ranked No. 2 in the country, Oregon students began selling "WE WANT BAMA" T-shirts for $10. The shirts were green with yellow lettering.
After Stanford beat Oregon 17-14 on Nov. 7, Alabama fans rallied with their own message for Oregon fans. They started selling "WE WANT BAMA" with those words crossed out and the words "WE FORGOT STANFORD" inserted underneath.
Despite Oregon and Alabama both looking bad because of their T-shirt messages, chances are that the trash-talking via T-shirt business is just getting started.
