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

    I've been racking my brain all night and I truly think it's highlight number one in the history of Alabama sports. I've never seen anything like that game. I'm still in disbelief. It's like the exact opposite of how I felt after the 2010 and 2013 iron bowls.

    We need a few more championships to cover those games.

    Itís up there because it might be the clutchest throw any of our QBís have ever made. You just donít see True Freshmen who havenít played a bunch make throws like he made tonight with the National Title on the line!!

    Well, I've replayed it enough to make it the greatest play ever

    i just dont think with what was on the line and the probability of tua bringing us to that point, that theres anything you can put ahead of it. WAY out of field goal range too. he misses that throw we have 3rd and 26 to even get in the ballpark to kick a field goal. it was pretty much do or die. insane.

    Well, if it is or not I don't know..

    But when it happened it was an out of body moment.

    So yeah, for me, greatest ever.

    And as a freshman, I'd have to put it at the top . It'll certainly find it's way into the Bryant museum

    It was a great play. But I think you are caught up in the moment. I can think of several plays that were more spectacular on an equally big stage. Teague running down the receiver was epic, for example. AJ to Coop was too. I suggest enjoying this win for what it is instead of trying to find comparison.

    Gotta push back on that, LA4. That was a walk-off homerun to win the World Series, a Game 7 buzzer beater type of play. I'll go ahead and get "caught up in the moment."

    It was a clutch play by a true freshman...Most young QB's wouldn't have the nerve to throw that deep ball in that coverage.
