Got 12?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCzJiHQFO9QYou envious second rate, AUtards most certainly don't!
1925The video says that because the national title was awarded retrospectively by only one “system”, then the championship is bogus. Problem is, the video is wrong. Houlgate was only one of eight “systems” that awarded the national title to Bama that year. Only two awarded Dartmouth the title (Dickinson & Davis), neither of which was Houlgate. Also, Alabama finished the season 10-0 (Rose Bowl victory), while Dartmouth finished 8-0.Maybe there should be some fact checking?1926Video — again — fact check. It says that Stanford was awarded the title after a tie by Dickson, which is, again, only partially accurate. Based on all of the selectors, Bama was awarded the national title by five, Stanford only by four. Why does the video leave these facts out???1930The video says we were only awarded the championship (or a share of it) by one selector. False. I know, you’re shocked. Notre Dame was awarded the title that year after going 10-0. Three selectors later gave Bama at least a share of the title. Bama was an undefeated 10-0 that year.1934Apparently the video is willing to concede that “this one’s debatable”, but still calls it bogus because a 10-0 Alabama finished sixth in one of the selectors polls. It’s funny that the video starts trashing systems like Dunkel’s here, because Dunkel gave Notre Dame the title in 1930, but apparently by 1934, things had changed.1941This is definitely the least credible of any title claims, but your problem is with Houlgate.1961AP/UPI, yet no bitching at Ohio State for claiming a share of the title in 1961, despite going 8-0-1???1964AP/UPI, even by the video’s own admission. Again, your problem is with the selection process. During this time period, the AP/UPI polls selected their champions prior to the bowl game being played as then, bowl games were considered "exhibition" games. You ever stop to think how Aubarn (AL) was awarded the title in 1957 without even playing in a bowl? Research my friend. Research.1965AP.1973UPI. 1978 Once again, the video plays fast and loose with the facts. The AP awarded us the title this year, after the bowl game. Clearly a legit title.1979AP/UPI1992AP/UPII also see where you fail to mention anything about 1936 where Alabama finished 8-0 yet the AP awarded the title to Minnesota who finished 7-1.Or 1945, where Alabama finished 10-0, yet the AP awarded the title to Army who finished 9-0.Or 1966 where Alabama finished 11-0, yet the AP/UPI awarded the title to Notre Dame who finished 9-0-1.I also don’t want to hear that “by your logic we could claim ten” argument. If you award a national title, straight up, because any selector gave you one, Alabama would have sixteen (17), against Auburn’s four (4).
