Doesn't mean a damn thing how much we "claim", they'll always have 2, 3, 4 times as many as Auburn. And there is nothing you can say, or rap about it.

Try back in a few years when I'll be able to link you to many sites that prove this wrong. Gus just needs a few in a row to get going.

Wouldn't that make y'all the original little brother by going back in the early 80's and retroactively claiming a whole bunch of titles?

This has been in the works for a few years now. Auburn fans have been trying to say we can legitimately claim 6 or 7, but I think the 1913 one is the only one with an overly legitimate claim.

Kudos to them for trying to break the red headed stepchild role though.  They have gotten a lot better and though they have rarely had a national championship football team they have played very well throughout history.

"football experts in the '20s all knew that southern football was barely on a level with junior varsity play in the rest of the country."
IDK if southern football fit or didn't fit the perception of "football experts" in the early days, but you can't count that 1913 season as a NC without giving homage to the 1926 Rose Bowl.

Consider that it was the 20s and not one damn person could see all the teams in a year  because tv didnt exist.   So they are quoting experts who had the most limited exposure.

Also the civil war ended in 1860s  so we are talking about a generation that had a automatic bias against anything southern.

Lets use a little common sense

"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

I'll remember to feel sad the next time I reminisce over how it's paid off already.

Then why DID Alabama "fix" it in 1983?

Alabama didn't win anything in 1983.  You are extremely confused.

I know, which is why it's strange that Alabama had five more national championships after 1983 than they had in 1982.
