    How can Bama claim that NC with 2 losses? There were several teams with 1 or 0 losses ahead of us. I don't Claim it and never will but 1945, 1966 and 1977 are a different story.

    I mean maybe I need someone to explain to me these questions, "What positive and useful purpose does this thread serve?" "How does it benefit anybody involved with Alabama football in any way whatsoever?"..and finally "Are you kidding me?"

    ....it just seems incredible to me that in less than a month we're playing for our third national championship in three years and we're spending our time discussing whether we should disavow a championship claimed over 70 years ago. It's kind of like.."Ok class...everybody made 100 on the math test. Now, what negative subject can we find to talk about?"

    Re: Should we disavow the 1941 Championship?

    can someone explain just exactly WHY we originally claimed 1941? I feel like a have a pretty good grasp of the others, but can't really wrap my brain around '41...

    It's simple - because Houlgate awarded us the National Championship that year. Not sure how that's difficult to understand...

    ONE (Wayne Atcheson) man took ONE (Deke Houlgate) man's word for it.

    This is my point of the entire thread.

    They are plenty of other years when someone awarded us the championship (1945, 1966, 1977 among others), but we don't recognize them.

    Why should we recognize this rather bogus one in '41 and not the others?

    So in 75 years, perhaps we should disavow the championships we're winning now because the BCS will be long gone and they've moved on to a different system?

    Didn't LSU win a BCS championship with two losses just a few short years ago.

    It was the age back then. Just like in 75 years, the BCS will probably be long gone and whatever new system they will have in place will make this polling system an afterthought.
    I don't see why people are having such a hard time with this. While '41 wasn't our most spectacular season, it is one of our championship years.
    People - step down from the ledge.

    I'll give that championship back if they give us the 1966 title that was denied for purely political reasons.
