Isn't it based off of one guy's formula? That would be like Notre Dame claiming this year's title based off of that one computer that still had them #1 after the championship game.
A downvote with no response. Nice!
Get ready for the downvotes but i agree with this statement. The problem is that if we did drop it it would basically say that we have been guilty of claiming championships that we didnt actually win. We would never hear the end of it.
I understand its kinda bs. But it pisses off the boogers and other fan bases that we claim it, so I say keep it!! And I +1 ya
Everybody already knows this one is BS. Even us. They already make fun of us for it so we're never gonna hear the end of it either way.

We didn't win one in 66.
Does this ever end. If we claim it we claim it. We would really get bashed if we claimed one that we weren't recognized at all. We've won 3 out of 4 and we are worried about 1941. It's 2013

It's a Bama message board. If you don't want to talk about Bama then leave.
I pay money just like you bud to be on here to chat but man we have beat 1941 with a baseball bat with nails in it. Let it die. Don't like my comments then don't respond to it.
Nope. Not angry. I'm guessing you probably are though because you read something you didn't want to hear.
Take your own advice. I've got no problem with your comments.
Tell me to leave and you have no problem. Roll Tide
I'm not telling you to leave. I'm saying if you don't want to talk about this...maybe consider not talking about it.
I saw the thread title and the up votes and thought that I was about to read a thread full of hater apologists. However, the majority of the comments are spot on. Don't let the people that are jealous make you think crazy stuff. Did we earn the '41 title claim? Probably not. Do other schools claim ridiculous titles? Absolutely. To stop claiming it after all of these years of claiming it would give the haters a victory and they would just move onto trying to discredit another title based on today's rules versus the rules that existed at the time. Get over it, OP, we will always claim it and nothing you or Auburn fans can say will change that.
Dont you think every team may have one that is controversial. We got it with the system that was in place at the time. I don't think we need to apologize for that. You are correct in saying we didn't win one in 1966 in your other post. I was a teenager then and remember our team as well as the ND vs Mich. St. tie. Politics of the times causes us not to win that championship as much as anything. That could have been Coach Bryant best team.
Now, if you don't mind you can go back to your Barn board. RTR

We should drop it. What's funny is that it seems like the right thing to do but it's also sort of arrogant at the same time. We got so many titles we can drop one and still trump everybody else!
It's a Bama message board. If you don't want to talk about Bama then leave. That's what you said a couple post ago. I gave my opinion on it. What you want is someone to talk to about it so I responded.
