In a season jam-packed with drama, tragedy, scandal and BCS woes, it’s easy to forget amid all the distractions that 2011 has been a campaign stacked with great plays.
Yes…look, that’s a football field, people are playing on it and, holy Toledo, aren’t they amazing?
The following slideshow attempts the almost impossible by selecting the Top 25 most exciting plays of the 2011 season (through 13 weeks) and then presents them for your viewing pleasure in thrilling video format.
The task of pinpointing these “wow factor” moments is almost as difficult as explaining and justifying the BCS—but boy, is it more fun!
This humble presentation serves as a tribute to the great athletes that have dedicated themselves to a game we all adore. Their contributions have been somewhat overlooked in a season overshadowed with a historic deluge of calamity.
Thank you college football players!
