Auburn fans. Please keep bumping the link above. We need to claim these and get the credit we deserve. Someone add link if it doesn't work.
The book that explains why Auburn University should claim a National Championship for the 1910, 1913, 1914, 1958, 1983, 1993, and 2004 seasons in addition to the 1957 and 2010 National Championships. (by Mike Skotnicki)

I already count all nine national titles and encourage all Auburn fans and alumni to do the same. I tell Auburn fans and alumni that tell me that if we did count them we would be like bama. I tell them in reply that's just plain stupid and idiotic we have trophies for all of our national titles and I want Auburn to count all nine national titles because we need to count what we have earned, won, and rightfully deserve. We have always been a national power. To take our rightful historic place as the oldest and most powerful school in the southeast.
While watching the bowls yesterday, I saw where ESPN recognized Alabama with 9 NC's, but somehow they claim 14. What a joke!!
This is one topic I wish the NCAA would step in and say this is how many each school has and put a end to the debate, claim what each school wants to claim doesn't make any sense whatsoever. We could claim more, Alabama should claim less and so on, doesn't make sense to me
I'm with you fellers, War Eagle!!!!!!!!
It sounds to me as if some of us are sort of like that kid begging for attention. "Please recognize us, please give us a little more love." So if we start "claiming" all of those does that mean that we are automatically going to be perceived in the way we desire? I highly doubt it. No, I'll let the inbred hicks on the other side of the state do the "claiming."
Saw the same thing, yet at other times espn will say 14
There is no such thing as a National Championship in Div 1 college football. There is a mythical national championship that is nothing more than a subjective beauty contest. That's the way it has always been and the NCAA saying who the best team is in any given year is no better than anyone else choosing. Until there is an NFL style playoff system, there will never be a "won on the field" national champion in Div 1 college football. So, who cares what one person claims. Claim whatever you want. It is arbitrary. Always know, the most prestigious championship in Div 1 college football is the SEC championship and there is nothing subjective about who has won those.
So now we're going to be like Alabama and claim titles we didn't win outright? Sounds awesome. Especially considering you all make fun of Bama all the time for claiming those titles. This makes us no better than them in that department. Dumbest idea ever.
Do you really have that bad of an inferiority complex where you need to claim titles given to us by some random pollsters? Especially for titles dating back over a century. Get a grip, people.
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
Nobody has ever won one outright! It's opinion.
You guys keep saying that, but it's not true. Everyone knows good and well who the outright champion is (except bama fans) and you guys keep yelling that to somehow ease your mind about Bama's success. Who won the National Championship for the 2010 season? Bet you don't think think that's just opinion now do you? Auburn fans wanting to claim those titles is just pathetic and puts us on the same level with the bama fans that we make fun of daily for counting championships that they didn't win.

Exactly. If we just came out of left field and did this, we would just look like whiny little kids. The Little Brother Syndrome in this thread is astounding.
Lol, nobody knows who the outright champion is because there isn't one. There is no NFL style playoff in which every team has an equal chance to win a championship on the field. Up until a few years ago it was voted on and now who gets to play for it is voted on. If it were so clear who the "outright" champion is, why would you need a vote? Wouldn't it be clear to everyone? There is no national champion in Div 1 college football. I know that runs afoul of everything you have believed in your life, but grow up and realize that your opinion is as valid as a sports writer's. Just because the sports writers tell you Notre Dame was the best football team in 19xx doesn't mean you have to swallow it. Use your own brain. You decide who was the best team in any given year. Your opinion is as valid as anyone else's.
I don't give a rat's behind what anybody claims. There is nothing little brother about that. I form my opinion on who I think the best team is every year, but it doesn't really matter. The mythical national champion in college football is just for fun. There is no playoff system in place to ensure it is won on the field. The most important championship to me every year has always been the SEC championship. And that is not because I'm trying minimize alabama's accomplishments. Last time I checked they had won way more of these than anyone else.
Yeah, you're right. Auburn didn't win the National Championship in 2010. This is just people's excuse and sad attempt at rationalization because they can't stand the success that Bama is having right now. If we were about to win our 3rd Title in 4 years, no one on here would be bitching about "mythical national championships". I know what you are saying and technically it is correct, but the way you guys are portraying it is like you are totally oblivious to who the obvious champions have been and that's not the case. Just LBS rationalization.
I really can't believe so many Auburn fans who make fun of Bama on a daily basis about their randomly claimed National Titles want to claim these BS titles. Trying to claim a national title on a year where we were on probation? Wow.
Believe what you want. The truth is I quit giving a rip about mythical national championships as a kid in 1983. The obvious champion that year is not recognized as such by your all knowing sports writers. The reason? Bias. If you want to give credence to such a system, by all means, knock yourself out. Don't gloss over what I said about SEC championships. Those are what are important to me. Again, spuat has won way more of those than anybody else. In fact the number of SEC championships they have won is way more impressive than the number of MNC's they claim. There is absolutely nothing LBS about that. But, believe what you want. I will as well. That's really what everyone should do. Claim whatever you want when it comes to div 1 college football national championships. Oh, and you are right. AU didn't "win" a National Championship in 2010. They were awarded an opporunity to play in a BCS championship game that they won. There are any number of teams that can claim they were the best team in 2010 because they were not given the chance to play Auburn or were not given a chance to win their way into a playoff system.
Nope because the don't have trophies for all of there national titles, but we do!
Hey its people like you in the family that why we are in this debate because you people don't want to claim what is rightfully owed to the Auburn family. Your line thinking is the that is stupid and the dumbest ever!
There again your argument makes no sense again you not wanting to claim what is rightfully owed to the Auburn family
