How Many National Championships Does Alabama Have?

by SL
(B-ham, AL)

I am an Alabama Crimson Tide Fan and I am told every day by an Auburn Fan that the Tide has claimed championship titles that simply are not true. He states that Alabama shirts and fans bragg about the number of championship years/ winning years etc that are totaslly false. How can a college print false information on marketed shirts?


Can you provide me with a true historical record of the Alabama vs Auburn victories and championship years that are independantly documented by an impartial authority?

If not then please refer me to some agency that can help me settle this argument of truth or fiction.



Editor's Note:

Hello, I don't think you'll ever get a "straight" answer to your question. The problem is that before the BCS there was no established method of determining the national champion. and, of course, even with the BCS there is much controversy. But, before that, each poll could name their own champion and many years multiple polls named multiple teams. the problem you highlight is probably the #1 reason many want a playoff system in at the FBS level. I'll forward this to my stats guy to see if he can give you any better explanation.

Thanks for the question,
