Auburn may have lost last night’s game with LSU, but it gained three perfect seasons.
Our constructive criticism was apparently taken to heart.
Last week, The War Eagle Reader noted that Auburn’s pre-game inspiration video shortchanged Auburn eight undefeated seasons in its list of inspiration video-worthy accomplishments. But for its seconds showing, the powers that edit wisely redefined the parameters of pride in terms of “perfect seasons”—of which Auburn has had seven, and which sounds way tougher.
Added (in super quick flashes) to Auburn’s two officially recognized national championship seasons (1957 and 2010) and and two other undefeated, untied seasons of the modern era (1993 and 2004) were 1900 (won all four games), 1904 (won all seven games), and 1913 (won all eight games and named national champions in several polls).
Here are both versions:
It’s a minor victory that takes the edge off the last night’s pain a bit. But it still stinks losing to a team that has only had six perfect seasons.

Don’t know why we don’t count 1913 as a NC year.
We don’t count 1913 because it didn’t happen. We aren’t UAT.
Since I wasn’t at the LA-Monroe game to see the first version, I watched the video last night very intently for the “4 Undefeated Seasons” line. I was excited to see the “7 Perfect Seasons” update, and immediately thought, “Congratulations, TWER! You have an audience with someone at AU Athletics!”
We have four more conferences championships; three from the old SIAA and one from the Southern. There are those who are in the SID office who think AU football began with the SEC was formed. If we are going to claim 1900 as a perfect season then we should claim the conference championship which was on the field.
