The Wikipedia entry for the Alabama Crimson Tide football team appears to have some technical inaccuracies. It talks about Paul “Bear” Bryant and their Heisman winner Mark Ingram. The part that seems technically inaccurate is as follows:
Recently, the Alabama Crimson Tide made history again, by becoming the first college football program to win both a BCS National Championship, and an MLB World Series in the same year.
Somehow I doubt that the Alabama Crimson Tide won an MLB World Series but I could be wrong. Expect this to be changed by Wikipedia at any moment (if it hasn’t already),

He's baaaack! Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley had been one of the Crimson Tide players of the week, as selected by the coaching staff, in Bama's first six games. In a win over Tennessee in which he was the leading tackler and had a pass interception to set up a touchdown, he was not a player of the game. After the Tide's win over Mississippi State, however, Mosley is once...
It may be hard to believe, but even as Alabama continues as the nation’s number one college football team, some Crimson Tide fans are grumbling. Barrett Jones has heard the complaints. Never mind that Alabama is averaging over 214 yards per game rushing, some Tide fans don't like where the rushing is done: up the middle.
Maybe the force-field that has shielded the end zone the past two times Alabama and LSU have tangled won't be quite so powerful Saturday night.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide and No. 5 Tigers smacked into it in last season's two meetings at various points on the field, crossing the goal line only once between them.

Alabama’s basketball team should find plenty of motivation in last week’s SEC basketball poll that saw the Tide picked to finish sixth in the league.
Defending champion Kentucky was selected first. Florida was predicted to finish second, followed by new league member Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas and Alabama. The rest of the pecking order...
Alabama has outstanding performances by a number of players each week, which is why the Crimson Tide has an 8-0 record and is ranked number one in the nation. The Southeastern Conference, though, must spread the honors around, so all worthy Bama players can't be honored by the conference each week.
Following Alabama’s 38-7 win over previously undefeated Mississippi State Saturday, the Crimson Tide held on to its top spot in all major polls. Bama is first in the Associated Press, USA Today, and Harris polls. The AP and Harris polls are components of the BCS Rankings, to be released later.
Ouachita junior WR Cameron Sims is being recruited by both LSU and Alabama, and the 6-4, 195-pound playmaker will be in attendance Saturday when the Tigers and Crimson Tide lock horns in Baton Rouge.
After beating Mississippi State 38-7 Saturday, the Crimson Tide is still on top of the BCS standings. However, there was a bit of a shakeup among the rest of the Top 10.
The Discover Fan Loyalty Poll released the most recent results of who college football fans believe is the best team in the country and, once again, the Alabama Crimson Tide are the overwhelming No. 1 team. After another blowout victory against the Mississippi State Bulldogs, the Tide continue to roll atop the fans’ standings. But while the news will be good for Alabama, three...
Another week, another lopsided victory for the No. 1 Crimson Tide. Despite the hype leading up to this game, the No. 11 Bulldogs were simply no match for the nation's best team.
