Twice Actually 5 times.
Yes, the University of Alabama has been put on probation for 3 years as a result of textbook violations.
Entering the 2010 season, in football, that is the University of Tennessee who has beaten the Tide 38 times (Alabama has won 46 times and there has been 7 ties).
6 times starting with the 1957 team that was awarded a championship by the AP poll but didn't attend a bowl owing to probation. All of Auburns national championships awarded by any organization have been with teams under some form of probation.
As of 2009, Alabama has WON the SEC championship 22 times. Second is Tennessee with 13 wins. Not sure how many times they've been in the championship game, but they have won / been the champion 22 times. ROLL TIDE!
to many to count
