    Greatest Catch Ever

    Thought it might be fun to debate this. The immaculate reception doesn't count. Its widely regardest and the greatest play ever, but not the greatest catch. So, off the top of my head, I'll go with.

    [media]F it. Thanks Noles.[/media]

    Simply ridiculous.

    That's not a catch, he trapped the ball on the ground

    Its a catch in my book, and it was called a catch as well.

    haha, na he caught it on his back and when they hit the ground, the ground can't cause a fumble.

    It's not possession cuz he didn't make a football move. Maybe the rules are different in the NCAA. In the NFL they woulda called it incomplete

    If you grab a ball then get crushed and hit the ground it's incomplete. You have to make a football move before you have possession.


    Anyways, Roy Williams made a nice catch agaisnt the bears a few years ago, but no footage of that on youtube.

    Now your making another situation.

    Prothro's catch would be a catch in the NFL. Another reason is because he possessed control of the ball while crossing the goal line

    Hova your posting sometimes makes me wonder sometimes man.

    How do you posses control of the ball with your arms wrapped around the defender? Especially in the NFL when you need 2 feet down to have possession. When the outside of the ball hits the ground as he is falling it would be considered a trap in the NFL you clown

    Not necessarily, you can have a knee or elbow down or hitting your head like Prothro!!!!!!

    He pins the ball on the back of the guy.

    Get over it, it is a catch they even looked at a REPLAY for it!

    If you look even closer his knee hit the ground BEFORE he was in the endzone so if he had "Possession" he would have been down at the 1/2 yd line. Terrible call all the way around

    Ahh probably my favorite Alabama player I ever watched play the game. He was Bama's version of Percy Harvin. If Shula wasn't a jackass he would probably be in the NFL right now.

    Yea with a little over 9 minutes left in the 4th with a 28 point lead. Florida was already in their shell and we had the backs to run the clock and finish the game. That just showed Shula's maturity being equal to that of a middle schooler that likes to play NCAA on junior varsity and score 100+ points.

    Stop talking about it. It makes so fucking angry when I even think about that. Prothro deserved better than how his career ended up.
