I AM GOING TO CLAIM THEM , ADD THEM TO THE PROGRAM GUIDE AND GET THE TROPHYS IN THE CASE.... ITS THE WAY OF THE TIMES. IT HAS NOT HURT ANY OTHER TEAM I KNOW. SO WHY NOT.
They are not consensus. If you list the bammer's 9 it includes:
1941,1964,1973,1978...these 4 off the top of my head were split. In 1941, they were #20 in the AP poll, 1964-undefeated but lost to Texas in the Orange Bowl and got UPI's given BEFORE the bowls). And my favorite of all....a #1 vs. #2 matchup with ND for the NC (same as this year)..lose 24-23 on the field and STILL claim a NC. Absolutely laughable. 1978 ? Split NC with USC..each had one loss....bammer's loss ? Uhh, to USC at Legion Field by 10 points. They are not even headed to the Sugar Bowl...Georgia is unless Auburn ties or beats them. We tie them 22-22.

Oh no he didn't
I love this picture!!!!
Had a great uncle that played API football in the late 20's, lots of good photo in the year book. The player nick names are a hoot.
Both sides make a really good argument but the run-on sentences and the mispelings by sum make it hard to lend any credence to there points to much to hold my atention long enuoghto relly figure out what their trying to say and whether there right or what should we think?
Come on folks. This NOT English class, but it's kind of like wearing a Bama shirt to church; all doubt of ignorance is removed. Proof what you write. Use spele chekc.
This thread has a lot of growing up to do. Seriously people, grow a pair. There are many cases of teams claiming national championships prior to bowl game. Bowl games have significantly evolved. They used to be a reward for the season; more viewed as an exhibition.
I am far from a history expert but I don't believe we even played in a bowl in '57.
If championships before you were born are all that matter to you (children), you are pulling for the wrong school. Lets worry about future championships.

Calm down, Captain Caps Lock.
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...
