Ok. This is my first fan post so I'll try and be interesting.
I was listening to the SVP (Scott Van Pelt) show today and they were discussing Alabama's 12 national championships and how they arrived at such a total. They referenced that in 1941 Alabama "won" a national championships based on their #1 ranking in the Houlgate System. So I decided to look up what that was. For those who don't know, it is some mathematical system a la the Sagarin Ratings. They also claim a national championship in 1934 based on a few mathematical rating systems. According to the SVP show in 1941 they were 3rd in the SEC and still claimed a national championship. In addition they said that one of Alabama's championships was awarded by a New Orleans pharmacist. (I was unable to track down any Tallahassee pharmacists) So based on this I went back to see if we are missing any "national championships". In fact we are:
1980: #1 in the Rothman(FACT) system (1968-present)
1987: #1 in the Berryman(QPRS) (1990-present, awarded retroactively)
1992: #1 in Sagarin Ratings (1978-present)
1994: #1 in the Dunkel System (1929-present)
1996: #1 in the Alderson System (1994-1998) - the only won we should have actually won.
So to summarize. Congratulations Florida State on your 7 national championships. I'm going to go print up some shirts with "Got 7?" on them.
