This comes out of nowhere. Suddenly Auburn wants to claim 4 additional titles (1913, 1983, 1993, and 2004) to add their two recognized National Championships in 1957 and 2010. This is according to Athletic Director Jay Jacobs...
quote:

“It’s right there, nothing but facts,” athletic director Jay Jacobs tells Auburn Undercover. “It’s awful hard to argue against facts.”

“We’re so competitive. We compare ourselves to other schools,” Jacobs said. “If they’re counting something that we’re not counting, and we’re on equal footing, wouldn’t it be wise to count it?

“I think it’s something we need to consider right now. It’s been talked about here and there, but lets get it out there now and look at it and see what we should do.”

Is it more ridiculous than A&M or others (only Minnesota comes to mind) similarly claiming retroactive titles? They are all just employing the same standard Bama set in the 80's when they unilaterally "made up" six national titles after their sports information director "just felt Bama could claim them." It's all a joke, but I don't think you can criticize schools for following suit with the ridiculous marketing scheme Alabama started. If Auburn claims a title during a year they finished third in conference like bama does let the criticism roll.
