GUMP SO HARD, YOU GUYS

USA TODAY Sports

Isn't it great that series that revolve around the greatest plays of a championship season have become tradition (the real kind) around Roll 'Bama Roll?

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 deem one as "the greatest".

Battle #1- MaCarron to Cooper vs Christion Jones kick-off return for a TD against Ole Miss

McCarron to Cooper

The magnitude of this play was felt all around the world of college football; without it there is likely no #15. It was a perfect play call, a perfect throw and Amari made the catch look routine.


Christion Jones kick-off return for a TD against Ole Miss

This play came at the perfect time for a 'Bama team that looked like it was just going through the motions. Alabama was trailing for the first time in the 2012 season and it lasted for all of 12 seconds. Roll Black Bears
