Auburn considering claiming share of 1958 National Champions


Ole Miss want to be in more way than one

quote:

The 1910, 1913, 1914, 1958, 1983, 1993 and 2004 teams are all under consideration. Each finished undefeated or won the conference championship, or both. All were recognized as national champions by at least one national selector, which are used by other schools to recognize National Championships.


quote:

“Minnesota added the 1904 title last summer. USC added the 1939 title in 2004. Ole Miss claims three national titles and not one is AP, Coaches’ Poll or BCS.

“Why should Auburn be any different? In this day and age, why should Auburn be so stuffy about it?”

It's pathetic, but who cares.

I'm glad we're about this bullshite, unlike the Alabama schools and Ole Miss.

Alabama also cites different selectors for many of its national championships before 1961 including Football Annual, Billingsley and Helms in 1925, Helms in 1926, the Davis Poll in 1930, Dunkel, Williamson and Football Thesaurus in 1934, and Houlgate in 1941. The 1941 Alabama team finished 9-2 overall, 3rd in SEC and 20th in AP poll.

At some point, all of the SEC will start claiming every national championship ever recognized by a selector who has recognized a rival team. It is up for the fans and the athletes to determine which ones are bull shite.

I'd like to see our comprehensive list and see where we stand with the rest of the conference.

Nope

They already claim 1957 and it's legit as far as I know. They went 9-0-1 in 1958, though.

Correct and as far as they are concerned, they don't care. It is pretty ridiculous.

Only half of it is.

They were on probation in 1957. The AP poll proclaimed them national champions. The UPI (coaches) poll didn't recognize teams on probation.

Sounds like the '93 title that they're also going to try and claim.

If LSU went on a claiming streak - what would we be at - 7? (Claiming titles years later is a joke)

By Auburn and Bama's criteria we'd have 9 or 10, I believe.
