    Best Damn's Top 50 Football Plays...

    I don't know if anyone else has posted this already, but I was flipping through the channels late last night when I saw the countdown on Fox Sports. You guys may recognize #27...

    http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/6072132

    I just love how every few months this clip resurfaces and it still gives me goosebumps to watch.

    My second favorite.

    6. Freeman catch
    It was a division matchup on Monday night between the Vikings and Packers. The Vikings missed a game-winning field goal at the end of regulation setting up an unlikely finish. Vikings DB Chris Dishman deflected a pass attempt to Antonio Freeman, who had fallen to the turf. The ball somehow managed to stay off the ground and into the arms of the receiver, who got up and ran into the end zone to the disbelief of the Vikings secondary.

    Re: Best Damn's Top 50 Football Plays...

    they originally aired this a while back but I loved seeing that play.

    I wish however they showed a different angle. The on the field cam doesnt really show how impressive that run was, but i guess the fact that it was played was good enough considering there were 0 hawkeye moments on the list.

    Interesting page. thanks for sharing.

    3 plays with Big12 teams made the top ten. With 9-10 plays involving Big12 teams.

    Big11Ten teams mentioned twice, both times on the loosing side.

    - keep.

    Anyone know where I can find a video of the Freeman catch. I remember seeing it at the time, but would love to see it again.

    No video of the Freeman catch...but here is Seneca's video if you want to watch it again. Shows 3 different angles. I don't think I've ever heard it louder in the Jack than after that run. I think Wagner's big hit was almost as sweet as the run itself. Enjoy!

    Suprised that the Hawks vs LSU "the catch" didnt make it. That was probably the maddest I have ever been in my life was after that catch.

    I'll give you the same response that I gave every single Hawk fan that tried to rub that in my face...

    "Two words... blown coverage."

    Definitley agree with ya tho, that one made my blood boil.


    99% of Hawkeye Fans give the rest a bad name...

    The missed kicks in '04 and '05 upset you less than the Iowa win over LSU?

    The losses to UConn and Boise State from '02 after being ranked #9 at one point less maddening than an Iowa bowl win?

    *deep breath*

    The men's basketball loss to Hampton in the NCAA tournament...



    As you can tell, I could go on for a little while here.

    Saw the show last night - absolutely awesome! Hearing Pete again is like music to my ears.

    Also, I too was incredibly ****** when Holloway caught that pass. Tossed my PS2 controller at the TV and needless to say.... it was destroyed :( Friggin' suckeyes.
