In my opinion, I'd have to say it was against a Coach Saban team at LSU. The Corey Webster/Keith Brown Pass interference play in 2004. What say you?
i think you nailed it
1983 Penn St game. Preston Gothard scored.
Wasn't there a bad call against Penn State where we caught the ball in the back of the endzone but the ref said he was out of bounds? I'm only 26 so I didn't see the game, I just hear my dad talk about it haha
Has to be the calls or lack there of in either the Arky loss back 10 years or so or the pathectic oob call at Happy Valley TD to win the game late.
The one in the OP was wretched as well

That gets my vote.
The Penn State out of bounds call gets my vote.

This call cheated Bama out of what I think would have been our greatest comeback in history
Trailing Penn St. 34-7 at the start of the 4th quarter (after turning the ball over 6 times) the Tide mounted a furious comeback and closed the gap to 34-28. When Stan Gay blocked a field goal attempt and Emanuel King recovered the ball at mid-field with under a minute to play it looked like the Crimson Tide were in business to stage one of the greatest comebacks in college football history but...
Yeah I just graduated from the University this past December so I'm not old enough to remember it, but I have seen the Preston Gothard clip before. He is literally sitting in the endzone. Didn't they eventually discover that the ref was the uncle of one of the Penn State players?
Any answer other than Preston Gothard vs. PSU is incorrect
15 National Championships, 23 SEC Championships, NCAA Record 60 Postseason Bowl Appearances, NCAA Record 35 Bowl Victories
You nailed it...ruined the single greatest comeback in Bama history....Later there was some discussion the ref that made the call had a relative on the Penn State team...
That's the one.
This, no doubt. Others:
- UGA player on his knees doing the hook and lateral.
- LSU pass interference
- Arky end zone celebration penalty
- Curtis Brown TD versus the barn
- Arky 12 player TD
- Namath QB sneak against Texas
- Bo over the top

Ray Perkins, the Alabama football coach and athletic director, wanted Don Guman replaced as the head linesman for the Alabama-Penn State game last Saturday because Guman is the father of a former Penn State running back, Mike Guman.

The PSU game,,,,me and a friend were so pissed we left at halftime (watchin on tv) to go deer hunting and we couldn't believe what happened next. We listened on the radio and were jumping all over the front seat hollering and screaming...Walter Lewis had a day that day. We were so jacked up and thought we had it,,,and then the wind got knocked out of us on that last call.
He also fooked Nebraska at happy valley in the same season.
2007 Alabama versus LSU....... Was it Brown who caught that ball that was called incomplete on a long bomb?
What an insanely bad call. Thank god for instant replay.
i concur went bananas because i knew we
had scored then the ridiculous call that
he was out Saw PG with a friend in montgomery
and told me he was in
We need "Retro-Replay" for that one
For those are unaware, this was Ray Perkins first year, Bama was 4-0 and ranked #2 I believe. We went up to Happy Valley and stunk for about 45 minutes - trailed 34-7 in the 4th quarter.
Then Walter Lewis, Joey Jones, Kerry Goode, et al started making magic. Bama cut it to 34-28, PSU types were shocked and stunned. Then PSU mounted a small drive, and set up for a rather long FG that would have iced it. It was blocked by Stan Gay, and Bama stormed down the field, and Walter Lewis made a guy miss in the backfield on 3rd down inside the 5, and found Gothard in the back of the end zone for the winning TD.
The official then stole the game from us.
Bama had one more play, but the players were dismayed and mentally out of it after seeing the win taken away. Perkins called for a toss sweep to Goode on the right side, and PSU ate it up.
