    Amazing play, without question. Had an impact on the game as I think it broke Miami, but it wasn't the clutch, game-winning play just after making a horrible mistake that looked to put Bama in a very bad position.

    I tend to agree with you. It was almost the same formation and throw that AJM made to Amari in 2012 to beat UGA in the NC game. But the moment last night was so much bigger, obviously. The only play I can think of that might equal it would be the goal line stand on 4th and goal vs. Penn St. which also won a NC.

    I love that play. I was at that game and remember it vividly. But it did not end the game.

    Tagovailoa's explanation to the reporter after the game gave me the impression that he understands the offense pretty well...

    Do you remember that play didn't actually count? I think we were offsides. It was a huge momentum swing and created a tremendous psychological advantage but I'd have a hard time putting that play above the Tua bomb. Good thing we have so many to choose from

    Yep, he rattled that play off to the reporter like it was another day at the office. He seems to be one of those qbs that thrive under pressure, Thank God......we needed that!!!

    Re: Tua bomb was the greatest single play in Alabama athletics history.

    We all have those plays that stand out in our memory as our greatest play. This is definitely in the conversation, especially since so much was on the line. But I can't so easily forget:

    1) Goal line stand vs PSU
    2) George Teague strip of Lamar Thomas
    3) Tyrone Prothro's catch
    4) AJ to TJ screen vs LSU
    5) Rocky Block
    6) The kick

    But given this was game winner in the NC game by a true freshman, it might win. I just have a hard time giving up those guys above (and there are many that my old brain can't think of right now that I should have included, I'm sure).

    Stopping by to officially endorse "Dime In Overtime" as the official name for that play.

    If there's a list this play has got to be on it!!!

    As a matter of fact, the CONTEXT of this play, IMO, makes it so.

    I mean, we are talking about a clutch, perfectly thrown pass in overtime for a national championship walkoff victory!

    As others have said, when you put it in context it has to be one of the top 2 or 3, if not #1. I never thought anything would top the Goal Line Stand play but this might do it. For me personally, I would put the Goal Line Stand and Tua's pass as 1A and 1B.

    Not sure that a play that was negated by a penalty comes close to what we saw last night.
