Former Auburn K Daniel Carlson makes bold claim about this past season’s Iron Bowl

Daniel Carlson is one of the best kickers in Auburn’s school history. Over the course of four seasons on The Plains, he converted over 80.7-percent of his field goals and never missed an extra point (a perfect 198-for-198).

His developed passion for the Tigers apparently means that he isn’t above the occasional friendly jab against his fellow in-state rival.

In fact, the 6-foot-4, 223-pound kicker joined The Paul Finebaum show on Tuesday, and he had an interesting take on the situation between Alabama and Auburn this past season.

Carlson is of course referring to the Tigers 26-14 home victory over the Tide during the regular season. In his mind, giving claim to a State championship is important to accurately represent what he considers a successful season for Auburn.

The question is whether others would agree.

After losing to the Tigers, Alabama proceeded to come back strong, making it to the College Football Playoff before defeating the Georgia Bulldogs 26-23 in overtime for the fifth national championship under Nick Saban.

What do you think, Alabama fans? Does Carlson have a point?
