    Re: How Many Bama National Titles In Your Lifetime?(And Pick Your Favorite)

    Same 10 for me as well Sip, but like 1958againbear, I was ecstatic with our bowl victory in 1966. I just KNEW we would be crowned champs after ND played to a tie. Broke my heart when the news came out. Favorite has to be 1992. I was living in Chicago suffering amidst the crows of Michigan and ND fans.
    Mom and Dad sent me a leather and suede 'Bama jacket for Christmas - couldn't believe all of the derogatory comments about Alabama I heard while wearing it that winter. Until we beat Miami of course. Afterward it was all "Roll Tide". Silly yanks.

    I only remember the last 4. 1992 was my favorite. Almost no one in the entire nation expected us to beat Miami. I think the team and the people in the actual state were the only ones.

    As a young one, my favorite was 09 simply because of revisiting Alabama history by attending the Rose Bowl.
    I always wanted to see Bama go back to the Rose Bowl and was lucky enough to be there. I wanted to see us win the BCS in the Sugar (our bowl) and was lucky to be there. I said then that I couldn't ask for anything else ever again. Never cared about the Orange. But then ND showed up undefeated and #1! PAYBACK after 39 years!!! And I was lucky enough to be there. I'm done now I guess. I still want the NCs but I don't know what could match those three EXCEPT a THREEPEAT! Here's to 2013. RTR!

    Forgot to add that beating the 'horns made the Rose even more special.

    Personally...I've witnessed ten. 61-64-65-73-78-79-92-09-011 and 012.

    That's one national title every 5.7 years of my life. Not a bad average!

    My favorite would be 92. That was just a very special year.

    65 was one of my favorites as well because we got totally screwed by a blown call in the Georgia game(18-17), Tied Tennessee when Stabler intentionally threw the ball out of bounds to kill the clock on fourth and goal thinking it was third down, and then two or three teams had to lose on New Years for us to have a prayer and they all did. Then we dominated a Nebraska team 39-28 in the Orange Bowl that outweighed us by 35 pounds or so per man. That was a very magical day.

    You guys?

    sip
    There are a few of us old timers.

    It's hard to really pick just one winner. My favorites were 1961, 1978, 1992, 2009, 2011, and 2012. Pat Trammell in '61; the goal line stand against Penn State; beating Miami, Texas and Notre Dame. It's always good to beat LSU. I'm still irritated about 1966! We were robbed. It was an aggravated assault on the U of A and I am still aggravated.

    If I have to pick three it would be beating Miami, Texas and Notre Dame.

    If I had to pick two: Texas and Notre Dame.

    If I just have to pick one, it's got to be beating the school that I dislike the most: Notre Dame. With the loss of so many players on defense, this was a GREAT year. However, we need to beat them several more times and then I'll really feel good.

    Coach Bryant's 25 years were great.

    The last four years have been awesome.

    RTR!!!!!!!

    My favorite is 2009, however. With Coach Saban arrival in 2007, one of my top bucket list wishes was to see just one more national championship. I was confident that 2010 would be that year, if I made it. WOW! We got three more and fell short in 2010. I'll take it. Anymore will be just lagniappe.

    Oh! Personally witnessed: add 1941. I remember it as if it were yesterday. And, while we're at it add 1945. If the Rose Bowl winner earned the championship in '25, '26, & '34, why not 1945. Polls be danged!

    If we add 1945, then I was around but not yet aware of Bama football. I agree about 1945. After playing USC in January 1946, I wish we could have played Army in a NC game.

    It looks like no one likes to see Alabama win unless they are Bama people. Seems like rules get changed every time we win a NC. What's going to change now? Will we just drop football as a nation since Bama has won the last 3 of 4? Using head injuries as the excuse, but the real excuse is Bama winning! Bama winning NEVER gets old!

    A total of 7, but I only remember 4. 1992 was special because it was right after I finished school and I went to all the game that year, but my favorite was this year.

    Best one was destroying LSWHO in 2011. Next would be destroying the golden dumbers this last year.

    So that would be 12 total with 3 back-to-backs.
    Won't call myself the elder statesman either.

    6 for me - '78, '79, '92, '09, '11, and '12. Its a toss up between '92 and '09 for me. Both came after long runs of the barn winning, and living where I live, that's tough, especially in when I was in school like I was for the '92 team.

    1973, 1978, 1979, 1992, 2009, 2011, and 2012. That's seven I've been alive for, but I was born in 1972, so the 1973 title is a stretch.

    However, I do remember all of the others, and I have to say that the 1992 was my favorite because I grew up in Florida and I hated the Hurricanes. We were such an underdog in that game that it just made it so much sweeter to utterly destroy Miami. If you look up the phrase "defense wins championships" in the Guide to Football Cliches, there is a picture of that defense.

    I don't remember the 1992 one as I was only 6 years old. This current one is my favorite. An epic beat down against ND. Awesome.
