The only problem was, the Tigers football program was ineligible for postseason play thus making it impossible to win the national championship.
Well 21 years later, that doesn’t seem to matter much to the Tigers as if you go to their official website, they’re claiming that specific team won a national championship as they’re listed among other title-winning squads such as the 2010 Cam Newton team.
Here’s the good news. For all of the Alabama Crimson Tide fans that catch a lot of flack for claiming false titles, you can now target all of those Auburn fans throughout the years that thrust that anger upon you.
