Really, though. Bama would be claiming the frick out of that title if they were in our shoes.

What is it with that state?

Not sure, but they need to stop spending so much money on QB's.
They had no hot water in the rest areas.

LSU should claim 1895, 1896 and 1898. All undefeated

Definitely 1908, too.

We lost 1 in 1961, let's claim that one. Hell, let's claim 1969 because we got screwed out of the Cotton Bowl. And we can claim 1959 because we only lost by 1 to Tennessee. BACK TO BACK!!!!

Why the frick not?

Don't forget 1908, and a couple from the 30's. and can't forget 1959 and 2011. Didn't we get ranked #1 by a poll Bama has claimed solely?

Didn't we lose to UTn that year because of the hidden ball trick?

We went for 2 and the win at the end of the game and got "stuffed". Old timers insist that Cannon got across the line. Way before my time, so I can't speak for "hidden ball trick" outside of baseball.

1896 we were 6-0. '61 we went 6-0 in sec and 10-1 overall. Lost to Rice in the opener and ran table and won the Orange bowl.

I just thought I remember reading about a hidden ball trick, in Peter Finney's book. Like hid the ball inside the jersey or something. Pretty sure a play that has long since been illegal.

They can join Iowa as a team whose claim to the 1958 MNC nobody respects.

If you haven't paid attention to history, Auburn is ALWAYS trying to play catch up to their in state rival in everything.

This is just one of many examples.
