I kind of agree with drunk MsDos. Claiming a national title seems a little like claiming this was a bowl-game year. Our peer schools would probably be amused by this. I can imagine the quotes on their forums: "That's the only championship Tulane will win is an imaginary one."

Who do you consider our peer schools? My guess is, there isn't another school in the AAC other than UCF that's had a football NC, ever. So they're not really in a position to laugh, are they? Maybe Navy has.

I think SMU went undefeated, but they were on "probation'...

They list as having 3 national championships: 1935, 1981, 1982. I think the last two were during the time when they were cheating heavily.

They were not cheating, they just had a payroll to meet and the players were SMU employees

If t shirts work we should be doing a PARADE !

After all, N O is world famous for parades grand and small, and we have more than enough musicians in town to raise a cheer for the THE OLIVE AND THE BLUE .

This is how I feel but I also don’t want to discredit how great of an accomplishment it was

I guess Dannen has officially endorsed our 1998 National Football Championship. I just got an email from Tulane promoting this shirt. Mine is on its way--I can't wait for the discussions that will arise from wearing it.

Still think we need a banner at Yulman as well. Until someone gets the 1998 Tenn and Tulane teams together on the field to settle it, I say we're the champions and no one can prove otherwise.

Exactly. And if anyone doesn't like it, they can go fix the system. In the meantime we'll continue to have muddy water.

I wish we would have taken the approach in 1998 that UCF is taking now. Claim the title, make shirts, have a parade,,they are in the conversation.

No doubt. I've seen a lot of people on Twitter who agree with what UCF is doing and on the Tulane 1998 NC shirt thing. They look at it as the more people shining the light on the hypocrisy of the current system, the more likely it is to change. "Playoff-shaming"?

The 1982 SMU team was the best in the country. A one loss media darling & holier-than-thou Penn State team was ranked ahead of a no loss SMU team to play Georgia in the Suger Bowl. SMU would have curb stomped Georgia.
Last time I checked Ron Meyer & Bobby Collins weren't covering for a systemic child buggerer.

SMU was getting snubbed because everyone on the planet knew their payroll rivaled an NFL team. As a matter of fact, when Dickerson demanded to get traded from the Rams, the word was he made more at SMU.
