Even if you deducted the national championships that are questionable Alabama still has many national championships. Before 1936, that is before the AP began its poll, national champions were determined by ratings and other existing polls.

Here are the Alabama teams I think were legitimately National champions

1930- Went 9-0 in the regular season, and then beat undefeated Washington State in the Rose Bowl 24-0

1961- Went 10-0 in the regular season and then beat Arkansas 10-3 in the Sugar bowl.

1978 - Alabama was 10-1 in its regular season and played number one ranked Penn state in the sugar bowl, Alabama won 14-7

1979- Alabama went undefeated in its regular season with eleven wins and no loses and then played Arkansas in the Sugar bowl winning 24-9.

1992- Alabama was undefeated and beat undefeated Miami in the sugar bowl by 34-13. I consider this a national championship team but I believe they were stripped of the title later, not sure though.

2009- Went undefeated in regular season and beat undefeated Texas in the Rose bowl.

2011- Lost one game during the regular season to the number one ranked LSU team then beat LSU in the BCS bowl by 21-0.

I would give Alabama 7 national championships with three additional highly possible national championships the 1925 and 1926 and 1934 teams. The four teams I wouldn't count as national championship teams are the 1941,1964,1965, and 1973 teams.

I disagree! I simply adore all the color variations that the Oregon team proudly and openly display ;)

I don't imagine they would add baby blue to their wardrobe though :/

Don't check in much anymore, ole Dan. Agreed.

ND? Folks are talkin em up.

AU??? I got all kind of inside info.

Trooper, WR Coach and recruiter, is drinking with the players and sowing discord. NCAA probe is next.

To keep on topic, I agree. The Mullet Nation has about 7 legit claims, but the true first champ will be crowned in season 2014.

They AP has never gave Alabama 14, they gave them 8. The UPI which isn't around anymore never gave them 14 either. So basically what you are saying is that you are an idiot and you don't believe facts. Put the crack pipe down and put your teeth back in.

I don't have to, you have to prove that your source is reliable if you are going to use it. That website goes with the schools claims, not facts.

I agree, I am just glad we are in it. I didn't start the season out thinking that we would play in a BCS game unless we had a few breaks, certainly not the National Championship game. I figured we were a year away. Win or lose I am happy because it looks like we are back to being a annual contender. It is a lot easier to make it to a BCS game when you start the season out ranked (which we weren't this year). Go Irish.
