There's no debate that Alabama belongs in the conversation when discussing the top college football programs of all time. Apparently, the program itself is well-aware of that fact. Alabama is now marketing itself as the "most successful" SEC program of all-time. Tosh Lupoi, outside linebackers coach, tweeted out a photo of the team's newest marketing material, which will presumably be used for recruiting purposes.
How does Alabama make the claim? The school is basing it on national titles, conference titles, all-time winning percentage, top 25 finishes and consensus All-Americans. They're first in each category, among SEC schools.

The SEC is absolutely loaded, with historical programs like Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, LSU and Florida in its ranks. That being said, Alabama probably makes a valid claim for the title. We'll assume that fans of rival schools might not agree.
