Per Doug Lesmerises of, a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Huntsville, Ala., is selling Crimson Tide merchandise that just so happens to be wrapped in Ohio State packaging.

Of course, you can see the irony in this. The Urban Meyer-led Buckeyes topped Alabama in last year’s first-ever College Football Playoff semifinal game, 42-35.

Now, the wounds are still fresh. And this just adds yet another layer to the fickle relationship between both fan bases.
