In honor of CFB’s 150th birthday, let’s try a best of list. Feel free to add your own.

Best Coach   Saban 

Best Player  Johnny Manziel 

Best Team   2007 Florida 

Best Rivalry   Bama/Auburn

Best Game  2018 A&M/LSU

Best Dynasty   What Bama has done in modern football with scholarship limits is unmatched. OU and usc have good runs as well, but Bama has put it together better in a tougher time when more parity is in the game than ever.

Most Memorable Play  I don’t have one for this. 

 Most Memorable Heisman Winner     Johnny and it’s not even close. Because of his style of play and his off the field fame.

 Best Coach Bear Bryant 

Best Player Kenny Stabler

Best Team 1992 Alabama 

Best Rivalry Iron Bowl 

Best Game 2016 Alabama over Clemson CFP Championship 

Best Dynasty BAMA 2009-present 

Most Memorable Play Tua and 26 to beat UGA in 2018 CFP Championship... no, George Teague running down Lamar Thomas from behind and taking the ball away in full sprint in the ‘92 Sugar Bowl... no, wait, Kenny Stabler’s “Run in the Mud” to beat Auburn...... no it has to be the “Goal Line Stand” to beat Penn State in the ‘79 Sugar Bowl... or is it Mount Cody’s “Rocky Block” blocked field goal to beat Tennessee in ‘09..... or the “Rally in Death Valley” A.J. McCarron to T.J. Yeldon to beat LSU in ‘12... or the “Rally in Death Valley 2.0” Blake Sims to DeAndrew White to beat LSU in ‘14.... or Jalen Hurts coming off the bench to beat UGA in the ‘18 SEC Championship Game... or “The Play that Changed College Football” Antonio Langham’s pick 6 to beat Florida in the inaugural SECCG in ‘92.... so many choices, so little time.

There’s something familiar about these picks but I just can’t put my finger on it.

Yeah I started second guessing myself on one of the picks so I went back and edited it.

If you were going with the straight Alabama one then the Kick 6 has to be the most memorable play.
