    Should we disavow the 1941 Championship?

    BamaOnline is ranking the 14 Alabama Championship teams/seasons.

    Obviously 1941 is the worst. The question is: Should we disavow the 1941 Championship? I think every other championship can be argued to some extent, but not really this one.

    Who do you guys think?

    I'd rather the University claim 1966 over 1941.

    Drop 1941 (9-2) for 1945 (10-0). Bama was awarded the National Championship in 1945 by the "National Championship Foundation". Undefeated and Rose Bowl champion over USC. Closest game was an 18 point win over Tennessee. Bama finished 2nd in the AP poll to Army. That keeps Frank Thomas with three national championships.

    That will be a negative.

    The answer is no. While it may not be the most legitimate, it partly makes up for the fact that we were shafted in both 1966 and 1977.

    Just to tick off rival fans, I think we not only should claim 1941, but should also claim 2005, 1993, and a few others just for the heck of it.
    Of course, after winning so many championships, it just gets hard to keep count.

    Championships were awarded by someone. Should we disavow the ones bestowing the championship? NO!
    Just because they were in another era before the current method was in use doesn't invalidate them.
    Should we disavow horses (The other 'Red Meat'...) because they predated automobiles?

    I would prefer that Bama adopt this list:

    Rather than pick and choose from this list:

    I don't really see the point in claiming these national titles that were awarded by publications/organizations that no one has ever heard of/cares about.
