    Name that play

    It might be hard, I know this one is a doozy. Remember, you have to hear it in Eli's voice.

    Yeldon the running back, Norwood in motion
    AJ gets the snap, pressure!
    Screen, Yeldon!
    30, 25...
    *Color guy* "Make a man miss..."
    "He's gonna go! He's gonna go! He's gonna go!"
    "Touchdown. T. J. Yeldon!"

    A little hint below, but no cheating!

    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Re: Name that play

    I gave kudos to several unheralded heroes in another thread, but watching this video again, I just remembered some things that I failed to mention in my excitement.

    1. Yeldon's pass protection on 2 of the previous 3 plays before his TD catch was phenomenal. Not often that you ask that of a true freshman. But he made it happen. Great, great stuff.

    2. On the game winning TD, the WR blocking out to the left (was in Christion Jones? Norwood?) did a GREAT job of sealing off that CB, who would have,no doubt, made the play or at least affected Yeldon enough to get stopped. Just a great all around team effort on that last drive. I'm proud to be an Alabama man this morning.

    3. Craig Loston was on the wrong end of a "Daniel Moore" type moment. The move that Yeldon put on him to break him down in the open field is the stuff that keeps the epsom salt companies in business. Actually had that happen to me and it felt like my hip popped out of socket.

    First, "The Drive" in '09. Now this one. Total team effort. Great OL play. Fantastic QB play. Clutch plays by Norwood. Super play calling. And to do this after being flat the whole 2nd half. Trying my best to be objective, but this just might be the best gut-check series of plays I've ever seen in college football. Roll Tide, indeed.

    Thanks for posting that! I really, really, wish I could somehow get a hold of full games with the radio audio.

    I know it would be great. I was able to listen to the game on the way to church this morning. That last quarter was amazing, Eli did a historic call of the game.

    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain

    Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard.

    Yep, and one more I'd like to add that sticks out to me - Warmack on the screen pass... Pushes LB Minter back then gets out to his spot and gets in the way of Minter and prevents him from being able to get to Yeldon.
