    Almost has to be considering you start overtime at the 25 lol. Who plays from the 41 in OT?

    Yea exactly. Just a stat to further exemplify how ridiculous that play and game were. Insanity.

Iíve seen this before at Penn St and TN, and there is nothing like it.
    I was right above you and this was my train of thought:

    "It's too long... no it's too short... no it's just right get under it baby TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!"

    Leaving the stadium the GA fans were very quiet... it only hit me later that they were STUNNED. This game was in their hands and they didn't take it. Kind of like I felt leaving the Clemson game last year.

    "Alabama does."

    Hey, we had to make it more dramatic, to crush their spirit.

    Plus it seemed like we were destined to lose, with the missed field goal in regulation, the long made field goal by UGA and the sack for huge loss on the play before the TD. He reversed fate.

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.

    It was also a Championship won on the last play. How many times has that happened, and twice in the last two years.

    Freshman. Back to the wall. Just made a colossal blunder. I mean, there is more surely but hat is enough in my book.

    Alabama has so many of these in your history. This will probably be that play for this generation.

    This has got to be the best. The importance of the game. The emotional swing. The gutsy calll. Perfectly orchestrated by 11 young men. Everyone did their part. This was a total team effort.

    The goal line stand against Penn State in my lifetime, but LA is right it should not be about comparisons every great Alabama win has its own story.

As we watched it I explained to them that it could be the most legendary play in Alabama football history. I told them that plays like that are what made me become an Alabama fan. Last night, as we were watching the celebration, I got to tell my boys that they were watching history. They were watching something I never thought I would get to experience- Coach Saban caught Coach Bryant. To boot, I told them, they also got to see what I think is the biggest play in Alabama football history. I held up the copy of The Goal Line Stand dvd and told them that they would make one of "these" of what they just watched. Sometimes the biggest part of win is the little moments you get to share with your family-when you see that look in your kids' eyes and realize that they are hooked for life. In moments like that you realize just how good God is, not just in the trials of our life, but in the joy that He allows us to experience.
    Very well said. Roll Tide!
