    Aside from James Jones' unbelievable catch to beat Miami in 1982, I'm intentionally keeping this recent to ensure everyone gets involved. It's hard to leave out Cris Collinsworth's 99-yard TD toss to Derrick Gaffney in his first UF game, in 1977.

    I'm sure I'm leaving out something important, but remember, I'm old and senile. Feel free to add your own takes.

      Hambrick's INT return against UGA in the Swamp. He had not chance to score. They had him hemmed in on the sideline.

        I voted Heave to Cleve because it’s the only one on the list I was there for. And the play wasn’t in OT.

          I really need 20 choices, but I think these 10 are good ones.

              Great choice. Outside of Lito’s return, this is by far the most mind-boggling play of them all. Should’ve been tackled 15 times and run out of bounds twice. And it was a score or nothing play because the clock was at 0:00. Plus it was against uga. Plus it was against Muschamp. Gets my vote.

                Can't find a video on that one, Coach, but I got his hitmate.

                  I’ll add this though. The Lito pick probably won that game for us.

                      6:40 mark. Hambrick was a beast in this game. How good would our linebacking corps been if he hadn't gotten in Spurrier's doghouse?

                        My favorite was Lito’s interception. That game was so much fun.

                        If I recall correctly, that actually put him into the Heisman discussion. He was never going to get it because he didn’t play enough offense but he was so damn electric when he intercepted the ball that he was forced into the conversation.

                        We were winners, and they were losers. It’s that simple. Whether it was a LB tightroping along the sidelines, a ridiculous INT, an immobile QB rushing for critical yards, or a perfectly timed timeout...we were just being winners led by a coach who knew he was going to win. Have to get back to that.

                            What about Ahmad Blacks INT vs. OK in the NC game - we were only up by 3 in the 4th quarter and they were driving. Plus he stole the ball out of the OK WRs hands and withstood a hit by Major Wright. Awesome play.

                                But I voted for DJ to Quezzie since I was in attendance at probably the best gotdamn football game I've ever been to.

                                  1 or 9. But where’s Cock Block arguably the loudest?
