Jimmie Taylor Wanted After Committing Aggravated Posterizing Against Florida's John Egbunu

On a day when the Tide needed him the most, Jimmie Taylor showed out.

Just vicious: What Jimmie Taylor did to John Egbunu is criminal in at least 37 jurisdictions.

With Alabama not getting much done with its backcourt in foul trouble, Jimmie Taylor stepped up in a huge way -- having perhaps his best day in a Crimson jersey. Some late timely free throws, big blocks on the defensive end, and a harassing defense down the stretch mattered in this one, as Alabama secured its first win over the Florida Gators in 12 tries, and snapped a 1995-and-counting losing streak in Gainesville.

Alabama is firmly on the bubble now. Amazing.
