    It is a play that is etched into my mind. With so many ups and downs in that game it was the final cathartic event. It was truly a story book ending.

    It's great to read everyone's perspective on this topic. I just think how great it will be to watch this play in the updated montage video on the big boards in BDS in perpetuity starting next year!

    If only I had been alive to see that one happen, but I do have an appreciation for it. I was pretty young for the goal line stand also (8 years old), but I was watching, and I remember the excitement in the living room when it happened, despite not truly understanding the significance.

    I know it's fresh, but it's a play I don't think I'll ever forget. Watching it unfold it seemed surreal, and when Smith caught the ball, I didn't know what to do for second - I didn't want to get too excited, expecting a flag or something.

    Seriously, no better ending to a game of this magnitude that i can recall. Taking a huge sack then standing up and straight up BALLING...

    Devonte Smith is Mr. Clutch with two game winners - vs. UGA & Miss. St. He reminds me of Kevin Norwood. Big in big moments.

    Great comparison. I think he's got more physical tools to work with than Norwood as well.

    No doubt about that. He’s got NFL potential. I Norwood played a couple years in the league too. Goodness Smith, Jeudy, & Ruggs will be fun to watch. Add in a good TE in Irv Smith

    Unlike anything we’ve seen in the Saban era on the offensive side of the ball and that’s saying something

    I saw STABLER'S run (don't know who Stapler is) and it was equally dramatic. There have been many dramatic, game-ending plays through the years...for and against us. What a great ride we are on....

    I am thankful I got to see last nights game winner with my children, special moment. Regarding greatest play, I am thankful our program has many to choose from across many decades (i.e. Run in mud, Goal line stand, The Kick, and Tua's pass).

    Agreed. His explanation of the play showed QB intelligence. I swear, it was almost as fun to hear him explain the play as it was to watch the play. Wow, young man is amazing.
