We will be launching a feature in a couple weeks that looks at the top all-time plays in FSU football history.

In a few days we'll post a poll on this board where fans can vote for the top plays. For now, we are just looking for nominations for top plays. If a play has already been nominated there's no need to bring it up again. We just want to make sure we have 10 good plays for the upcoming poll.

Fenner's CATCH.

Warrick's TD catch vs VT in NC game.

Ward to Dunn in the swamp.

Colzie's pick in the 4th quarter of the Choke.  Of all the key plays in the comeback, I think that was THE one.


Fumble and recovery vs Nebraska in 197? in Lincoln. Blanking on the player's name right now.

Any Marvin Jones tackle.

If i had to pick a play from last year, my vote goes to Lonnie Pryor dragging the entire NC State defense for a td. The Hopkins Clemson kick the year before also definitely deserves mention

A new one...the pick 6 by T-Buck in the Big House.

Ward 2 Dunn.

PDub PI catch vs VT.

PDub vs La Tech.

PDub TD of deflection against the crocs.

Rix to Sam in the swamp.

6/18 11:20 AM | IP: Logged

T-Buck's - The Foolah from Pascagoula

Gotta be on the list

As far as the greatest play ever - Has to be the Puntrooskie hands down - After all it's "The greatest play since my Fair Lady"

Paul Purowski sack vs Nebraska late in the game to seal the deal. That play started FSU and Bobby on the climb to Dynasty.

4th Down TD pass near the end of the 4th quarter from Danny Kanell to Andre Cooper against Notre Dame to barely win the Orange Bowl (I think) in 1996 and to preserve our streak of Top 4 finishes.  People dont' really talk about that play and that game, but without that play, we don't have that long streak.

Other noteworthy plays.

Dominic Robinson catch on 4th and 11.  It's secondary to the Rix bomb to PK, but without it there is no pass to PK.

Sean Jackson TD run down the sidelines against Miami in '93.  Pandemonium in Doak.  Set the stage for the rest of the game.

Ward TD run against Virginia in 1993 where he leaped over a defender in the end zone. 

Tamarick Vanover TD return on opening kickoff of '92 Miami game.

Although the game was in hand, and thus, it was an "important" the Weinke to Minnis 98 or 99 yard play action touchdown pass was one of the coolest and most brave plays I have seen.  How Weinke so cooly stood in the end zone hiding the ball was great.

I wouldn't make this the top play, but especially with all that has been said about FSU choking on field goals, any list of top 10 plays would absolutely have to include Scott Bentley's field goal with 21 seconds left in the 1994 Orange Bowl for the national championship against Nebraska to win it 18-16. Bentley had 4 field goals and Nebraska missed a 45 yarder after Bentley's kick.

That was awesome!  The timing of the call, the execution, my god that was brilliant  (the "Butler Did it"!!   And, I absolutely loved it when D. Carter put that flag on Cane's LB (Barrow?)'s head!

1: Ward to Dunn in the Swamp '93
2: Deion's punt return against Clemson. "How do you like me now?"
3: Sebastien Janakowski's 50+ yard FG against the Gators (after a penalty on a  made 40+ yarder) and the ensuing Gator Chomp gesture.
4: Warrick's insane, run all over the field td against the Gators.
5: The Rock Preston TD in the Choke in Doak.

Bobby Renn's 78-yard return of the opening kickoff in the very first FSU-Florida game, played in Gainesville 1958.  With all the drama leading up to this game, the setting, FSU the big underdog, and sitting in the end-zone watching him running straight at us, it is still the most thrilling play I have ever witnessed.  A new milestone was reached in the history of Seminole football.
6/18 12:44 PM | IP: Logged

 a couple of obscure displays of athleticism...

Vannover's first return for a TD.

Deion's famous touchdown saving clothesline tackle from across the field. I can't remember who we were playing but it was an amazing display of football speed. There were several of his punt returns that were impressive as well.

Nigel Bradham hawking down CJ Spiller from behind.

Corey Simon picking up the tackle and throwing him into the RB.

Greg Jones 55 Yard TD against Clemson.

Ron Simmons collapsing lines on a regular basis.

Scott Bentley's safety saving tackle on the blocked kick.

Any of Chollie's eyes in the back of his head plays.

If you look carefully at the replay of that, you can see a pre-Rock with an unhappy look on his face.

I guess he didn't like what the Noles were cookin'.

Greg Jones hit on Dexter Reid!

Link: Greg Jones tattooes Dexter Reid6/18 2:16 PM | IP: Logged

how bout the 98 game at Doak, emotions were high, pre game brawl at mid field.  That game was electric, Rooster was the QB, never will forget faked an end around with P.W., who tossed a TD to Ron Dougans.   It was later shown on TV over n over that during the pre-game skirmish, Doug Johnson threw a football towards Coach Bowden's Head (dadgum good thang he missed)...when asked about that incident, Bowden later commented "if it was thrown by one of my QB's, it would have hit me"

One of my favorite moments was when Weinke throws the pic 6 to UF in 99 I think?  Then they come right back down, Janikowski hits a 49 yarder, delay of game, so he hits a 54 yarder to shut the swamp up.  FSU scored the 17 in a row right after that int.  I have watched that stretch of the game so many times.  It is so funny for the swamp to be so loud and within 10 minutes, it is virtually quiet!

Weldon to Dawesey in 88 croc game. Will White bit on LD"s fake and Casey layed it perfect behind him on the side line. LD had to haul azz to the end zone with 2 crocs bearing down.
