Barn to be retroactively awarded '04 championship?



Kevin Scarbinsky writes in this article that the Football Writers Association of America is considering awarding Auburn the 2004 National Championship due to USC's recent trouble with the NCAA.  I'm not sure how I feel about this (though, of course, my immediate gut reaction is screw that), we claim several National Championships that were awarded retroactively.  This has always been a major point of contention with boogs, as they like to crow about how we claim NC's that we really didn't win.  Of course, there is not truly a direct relationship between the championships we claim from the '20s and '30s and Auburn's potential '04 FWAA NC.  The 2004 championship is vacated, which none of the ones we claim were, and therefore poses some interesting questions to me.  If the Barn family accepts this championship as their own, would they be able to say anything to us regarding our 13 titles anymore?  Would the acceptance of this title open them up to praise or derision?  To me, it would be the latter, as claiming the '04 title would just reinforce my opinion of the barn as a third rate joke of a program.  I'm interested to see what the RBR family thinks about this, because the usual suspects here always seem to have the most intelligent and informed opinions that I have found anywhere on the internet.  So, which is it? An honor for the barn? Or a complete joke?
