    If I remember right, that game ended right before we proceeded to whip LSU. That was a great day.

    Looking at all of these years lined up makes me realize that Saban has been close several times, but still hasn’t reached one pinnacle most would consider unattainable: the three-peat.

    Let’s do it.

    2015: Drake return
    2017: 2nd & 26
    2020: not sure

    I’ll go a little outside the box and pick memorable plays for me that stood out since most of y’all have already said the most common ones.

    2009 - GMac’s 3rd down balanced ballot QB scramble for a first down in the SECCG. I felt like that was a play that Tebow should make in a game like that. Tied with this is Dareus’ shovel pass pick 6 circle button Gilbert stiff arm in the natty

    2011 - Upshaw’s pick 6 in Gainesville when it was tied 10-10 that turned the tide

    2012 - Yeldon’s 3rd and 5 run off right tackle in the SECCG where he dragged two defenders across the line to make. I believe the next play was the bomb to Amari that sealed it.

    2015 - I will forever believe the Griffith onside kick to Marlon to be the greatest executed special teams call in a championship game ever. Second to that is Henry putting Shilique Calhoun in the spin cycle with that nasty stiff arm in the semis.

    2017 - Aside from 2nd and 26 which is the greatest play in program history, I gotta go with Daron Payne’s TD catch and toe tap. Loved that dude.

    2020 - Smitty’s one-handed grab against LSU or his toe touch against Georgia.

    2009 - Rocky Block
    2011 - Hightower strip sack in the 4th qtr of the BCSCG
    2012 - AJ to Coop in the SECCG
    2015 - Drake kickoff return
    2017 - 2nd and 26
    2020 - I’ll go outside the box with the big stop on 4th down against OSU because that’s when I finally allowed myself to know we would win and I could relax and enjoy the 4th qtr without puking like the last few title games :mulletsmug:

    Can’t understate how important it was that not only did those draft-eligible guys last year come back, but (mostly) shine, win a title, and improve their stock.

    Makes it a lot easier to sell that to groups coming after.

    Our RBs next year are going to be a lot of fun. BRob, Jase, Roydell all seem to be pretty different runners. Then add Wheaton and we’ve got a party.

    BRob coming back probably shuts the door on Keilan’s return. He showed promise but you can’t fault the kid for opting out. Wonder if he ends up at Maryland.

    Would love nothing more than for Trey to stay healthy next year, ball out, then go get his. His luck as been awful.

    I wonder how his rehab is going; was looking for any news about it but couldn’t find anything except for when he firmly said he wasn’t transferring.

    From what I heard his major injury was a broken pelvis. Not even sure what kind of rehab you would do for that?

    BRob coming back is great. Not sure I trust Jase or Roydell yet in short yardage situations and BRob I fell will get you that.

    Plus he absolutely destroyed the OSU secondary on a few occasions and that was fun.

    I like Brob in the closer role from this year. He just comes in and beats ass in the 4th quarter when the defense is tired

    BRob second half natty was a man on a mission. That defense was worn out from chasing Smitty and Najee and to have Brob come in fresh out of a cannon was fun to see.

    We don’t really know yet.

    The fact that he apparently pushed Mac for most of fall camp is probably a good sign considering how Mac did this year.

    Alright now that the season is over and we've seen the natty I've got to bring back up the Saban RB rankings. I've always had Ingram at the top of my list then Henry. Mostly because of nostalgia over the 2009 season. But I'm wondering if we have to rethink rankings based on what Najee did this year.
    (1) (a) Ingram
    (b) Henry
    (2) Najee

    Too many variables involved.

    Ingram is the guy who most consistently put the team on his back without help. Henry was the most durable and consistent runner. Najee is the most balanced back we’ve had by a long shot.
