The Set-up

These are what we here at RBR considered the "Top" 16 plays of the 2012 championship season. I'm sure there are some that I forgot to include, sorry (not sorry). The plays are listed them 1-16 in a somewhat random order and is a single elimination contest.

Some things to consider..

This is purely an opinion poll and you are free to vote based on whatever criteria you deem worthy. It's about which play was your favorite. (But I swear if y'all pick a play just cause it was against Auburn I will burn this place to ground).

This is for funsies, you guys. Yes, we fully understand Alabama wins championships as a team blah blah blah. But we as fans are able to (or at least should be able to) look at individual moments during a season and claim one as "the greatest".

Amari Cooper Burns Tennessee, Twice

7 REC, 162 YDS, 2 TD — That was the stat line for freshman WR Amari Cooper against Tennessee. The first TD came early in the 1st quarter when McCarron found a wide open Cooper just sitting in the back of the end zone. The 2nd came later in the 3rd on a badly under thrown pass by AJ where Coop had to fight two UT defenders for the ball.

My god, the freshman.
