Alabama national championships by president, party

Of course, it’s hard not to think of 1992. Twelve years of Republican presidents yielded to a Democrat from Arkansas. There was a recession. Alabama was unheralded, and beat the holy hell out of a Miami team that included people like Warren Sapp, Lamar Thomas and (laugh) Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torretta. Onward!

1979

1992

There you go. Yeah, no real trend there, except the last time the Tide won it all, a Bush was in the White House, a Democrat won the presidency and the country was in a recession.

Um, fingers crossed?
