    What part of my previous posts did you not comprehend?

    Nothing wrong with being a fan.

    However, don't come in running your ignorant mouth like you have some air of superiority because you bought a hat at Walmart. Big deal. A school you have no connection to beat another school at football.

    You have no skin in the game. You have no time or money invested.

    "Well, I'm gonna go run my mouth and talk **** like I've done something."

    Yes, your stupid ass waited out the line for a discount store to buy a cheap Chinese made hat.

    lolol so salty.
    Ive never witnessed an Alabama fan try and take credit for winning a ball game, guess I haven't been around enough fans.

    And Alabama has been given a share of the national title by either the AP, UPI, or BCS 11 times. That leaves out the 1920s and 30s before the AP crowned champions, including years where Bama was awarded the title by various outlets in 1925 (undefeated, won Rose Bowl. Landmark victory for SEC), 1926 (unbeaten, tied Rose Bowl), 1930 (undefeated and untied, won Rose Bowl) and 1934 (undefeated and won Rose Bowl).
    So, even for someone without a vaunted UT education, the math is simple. 11+4=15.
    And that doesn't count the 1966 screwjob, finishing undefeated but being behind 9-0-1 ND. Sagarin and someone else gave Alabama a share but it isn't claimed.
    Alabama has 8 consensus titles by the AP/UPI or the BCS.
    "Alabama's cornerbacks don't impress me one bit. They're overrated. Real men don't play zone defense and we'll show them a thing or two come January 1."

    Miami WR Lamar Thomas, the weeks before the 1993 Sugar Bowl national title game.

So Bama won their 1925 NC using a formula that didnít exist until 1927? Helms Athletic Foundation started in 1941. Another incredible retroactive NC.

    1926 National Championship- Alabama claims they share this one with 3 other teams with equal or better records! Once again it is the Helms Athletic Foundation in 1941 that awards it!

    1930 National Championship- The Davis poll says that Bama tied Notre Dame for NC this year. This was the only one to award it to Bama. Notre Dame was named NC in 6 polls! Parke Davis is another retroactive system! He (an individual, not an organization) did his in 1933!

    1934 National Championship- Alabama says they share this with two other teams. The awarders are Dunkel, Williamson, and Football Thesaurus. Dunkel was an individual who came up with his own system. Williamson was a geologist who came up with his own system. Football Thesaurus first appeared in 1946!

    1941 National Championship- This is a complete joke. The AP ranked Alabama 20th in the nation with 14 teams with better records in the top 20. Once again it is the Football Thesaurus that retroactively awards it. Alabama finished 3rd in the SEC that year. Mississippi State won the SEC title..yet Bama claims a National title!

    1961 National Championship- Finally a legitimate NC.

    1964 National Championship- While the AP did award the NC to Bama (10-1-0), Arkansas had the better record, 11-0. Alabama played Texas in their bowl and LOST. The AP final poll was before the bowl.

    1965 National Championship- The AP gave this to Bama. That year there were three teams with better records than Bama. Bama 9-1-1, Michigan St 10-1-0, Arkansas 10-1-0, Nebraska 10-1-0.

    1973 National Championship- AP puts Bama 4th after their bowl game loss. Bama claims a NC from the UPI poll that was taken before they met Notre Dame in the bowl game and lost. There were 3 teams with better records than Bama that year. The embarrassment of naming Alabama number one caused the UPI to name champions after bowl games. Yet Bammer has no shame in claiming it of course.

    1978 National Championship- AP gives this to Alabama(11-1-0) even though USC (12-1-0) had the better record Guess who Alabama lost to that year? USC!!!!!!!!!. UPI gave the NC to USC.

    1979 National Championship- Their second legitimate NC. Their first Unanimous NC.

    1992 National Championship- Their third legitimate NC. Their second Unanimous NC.


    3+4= 7

    Great Post, SOJ.

    You nailed the facts to the wall there. In the real world, Bama has about legit 5 NC's. Which still isn't so bad, but it's a far cry from the other fake number.
