I personally respect him a great deal and feel he has a great deal of historical perspective on the program. But is there any chance the university would ever do this? There is no way that happens even if that title is really a joke. I personally agree with Hurt on the '41 title at the risk of downvotes. If we can go ahead and claim titles in the '80s from the Rose Bowl era, I don't see why we can't disown the '41 season as a title season after further review. Would probably be well received nationally IMO. Every other title has legitimacy to it, and I would add '66 and '77 as two years where Bama could have claimed a title and there really would not be much griping across the country.
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
Totally agree and I've been saying that for years. That's the only one I wish we didn't claim.

People use the 41' title claim to try and discredit some of our others. I agree with dropping it.
I could care less how many titles we claim. However you count them, though, we undeniably now have more than anyone else. And if it's a burr under someone's azz that we claim more than they think we should (auburn) then I'm all for claiming it to just to piss'em off.
I think we need to stop worrying about what Auburn fans think and just continue to be Alabama. We consistantly dominate this sport in every era and that should continue to be the goal. Let's just write the next chapter, instead of correcting spelling errors from 70 yrs ago.
ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE....like NO other
Although I think we should drop it, if you open that door who knows where it will end. People are gonna bitch regardless because no matter what your standards are (AP, BCS, etc) we have the most titles.
Never Gets Old
Yep should drop it.
Still 14 and 10 AP/BSC/UPI championships in 75 years of modern poll era CFB. That's 13% of the time and is an absolutely ridiculous number.
Drop it now. Claiming it is beneath us.
Cecil has a lot of "14" shirts/hats/gear IMO.

There's a lot of blood, sweat, and guts between dreams and success.
We should keep it just to annoy people with nothing more important to whine about. How about them '41 boys!
Don't we all. I want a NC watch that has a little button where you can update the # of NCs. Got 14. Click. Got 15.
I've always thought '41 should not be counted, but there are 2 or 3 others that should be so in my mind we have 15 no matter which ones you count.
