This small radio error was (probably gladly) pointed out by a newspaper, USA Today. After Alabama’s 44-16 loss to Clemson, Monday night, Cumulus’ sports station WJOX in Birmingham ran a commercial for Academy Sports + Outdoors advertising Crimson Tide championship gear.
Of course, that was a pre-recorded ad that was only supposed to run if Alabama won and was aired accidentally. The :60 ad was quickly recorded and posted to social media as well. For the record, Academy Sports + Outdoors does not have any Alabama title gear. No word on whether they had to pay for the ad.
