    Disavow? Like the secretary in Mission Impossible?

    Was watching last years BCSCG Wednesday on ESPN and they showed a graphic which Brent narrated stating we then had 9 NC's (after that win) according to AP and the Coaches poll which put us in first place ahead of ND and OU.
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

    No. Plain and simple. If we were to remove "1941". Than Notre Dame should remove 1966 & 1977.

    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?
    Keep it, no reason to disavow it.

    If we want to claim the '45 title, do it. It's the worthy team because they won a rose bowl not some team that lost to MSU.

    No. The 1941 rafter banner is hanging proudly from the ceiling in my ManCave.

    I think we should claim a few more just to peeve off the Barners. Think of how they would react!

    Sure. But while we're in the disavowal business let's also throw out 1964 (we lost to Texas but Arky beat), 1973 (we lost to Notre Dame), and 1978 (we lost to USC, who was champion).


    So on second thought.......no.

    We can't use 2012 logic to determine if 1941 logic was correct. It's not 1941.

    I feel like after every one of your posts I'm supposed to take a drink. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but it sure does make work a lot more interesting.

    I hope that we beat Notre Dame so badly that the AP revokes their 1966 and 1977 NCs and gives those to their rightful owners.

    I watched it last night too and I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. Just the single most dominant defensive performance ever on the biggest stage. I don't know if we'll ever see anything like that again. Well, not until they show it on TV again.

    Well, I guess real football didn't begin until after WWII. I need to give Daniel Moore a call and get my money back on that "Century of Champions" print that I bought back in January 1993.
