Click here: to go to Auburn's website and see what they are claiming now. The 1993 season Auburn was ineligible for postseason play.  I guess in a few years Ohio State can claim a National Championship for the 2012 season.

What we really need is a T-shirt that says:

AUBURN: Home of Self-Proclaimed Champions

or

AUBURN: If we can't do it on the field, we'll take care of it in the books

or

AUBURN FOOTBALL: We major in Revisionist History

Even though I came in 5th in the 1990 Stadium Drive Elementary Spelling Bee as a 2nd grader, I'm retroactively laying claim to the championship. My word was tough and I only missed one word. Therefore I win.

New Auburn cheer:  "We (were) No. 1"

This whole thing is so stupid.  But, it does raise a few issues:

Do all the players from those teams get big, gaudy rings?  Do the coaches get to change their resumes to claim those championships?

Does Auburn have to sue the other schools to get their trophies, or do they just go to a local trophy shop and have some made?

When they paint those championships on the stadium, who will be the first to deface them?  Fans of opposing teams?  Or members of Auburn teams that really did win championships?

I call dibs on the rings that were for the players on the 1913 squad.

I remember '93 they were on sanctions and couldn't  play on TV or in a bowl game for cheating. If I remember right, the sanctions were seriously for coaches and boosters paying players.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
