11:27 AM ET 02.01 | Flags flying above Jordan-Hare Stadium commemorate Auburn's national championship teams of 1957 and 2010. The school now might add flags for other years, such as 1983, 1993 and 2004. Wait, you say. Auburn didn't win national titles those years. Yes, it did. If you consider little known and defunct groups like the National Championship Foundation, the Maxwell Ratings and the GBE College Football Ratings. Auburn is considering joining other college football programs that recognize teams that were declared national champs by groups like the ones just mentioned, according to an article at auburn.247sports.com.

The Gump Championships?

LMFAO! That's just how they do it in Alabama.

Just get your boosters to form a group. Give it a buzzy now name, vote the old Alabama way, and you can hang a new flag up every year.

Seriously, this kind of stuff is great for the flag business. And the poles that hold them up..

I need to get me some of that ad blockage. It sounds awesome!



I don't get any of the pop-ups, but getting rid of that damn video crap would be nice.

This explains how Gus won COY. How many other coaches can LOSE the NCG, and still claim 3 NC's, in their first year as HC? Very impressive.

This guy wants to dress like Coach Ditka.

I'll give the HC at Auburn his due.

In 2012, the Tigers went 3-9. The teams they beat were the ULM Warhawks, in overtime, New Mexico St, and FCS Alabama A&M.

In 2013, they were 12-2, they were the SEC champions and played in the BCS CG. Damn big turn-around!

Not nearly as impressive as what Cutcliffe did at Duke.

Get Flashblock. It works great for the video crap.

Actually it's not that big of a deal. It just shows you how weak (or not up to par) the SEC was last season.
