National championships in NCAA FBS college football are debated as the NCAA doesn’t officially award the championship. Despite not naming an official National Champion, the NCAA provides lists of championships given by organizations it recognizes.
In line with the official NCAA 2009 Division I Football Records Book, “During the last 138 years, there have been over 30 selectors of national champions using polls, historic research and mathematical rating systems. Starting in 1936, the Associated Press started the best-known and most widely circulated poll of sportswriters and broadcasters.
Before 1936, national champions were determined by historical research and retroactive ratings and polls. The criteria for being included in this ancient collection of poll selectors is that the poll be nationwide in scope, either through distribution in television, newspaper, radio and/or computer online.”
The University of Alabama 2009 Official Football Media Guide says that Alabama had 12 national championships prior to winning the 2010 BCS National Championship. The 2009 name brings the total number of national championships maintained by Alabama to 13.
Along with the championships maintained by the college, the NCAA lists Alabama as getting a championship for the 1945, 1966, 1975, and 1977 school football seasons, however those championships aren’t claimed by Alabama. Eight of Alabama’s national championships were given from the wire-services (AP and Coaches’ Poll) since their inception.
In the 1980s, then Alabama Sports Information Director Wayne Atcheson additional five national championship teams recognized prior to the modern era to the University’s Football Media Guide.
Based on Atcheson, he made the attempt in the context of disputed titles being maintained by other colleges, and “to create Alabama football look the best it could look.” Although the claim was made in the spirit of rivalry with other claimants, Atcheson asserts the titles he included are the school’s rightful claims.
