Best plays of 2006: the Final Four

Where's the drama, people?! All but one top seeds advance. Wicked, tricksey falls to Got a man . . . it's caught! So LaMarcus Coker, who had 25% of the plays in the full, 16-play bracket, doesn't make it to the finals. Too many somersaults (one), I expect.

So your final four are:

  • And they might have another touchdown! (Hardesty's TD against Cal.)
  • XTFL. (Xavier Mitchell's tackle for loss against Air Force for the win.)
  • The Cover. (Antonio Wardlow's blocked punt and recovery for a TD against Georgia.)
  • Got a man . . . it's caught! (Crompton's 54-yard TD pass to Meachem against LSU.)

Because we're to the last four, I'm going to post the first semi-final tomorrow morning and the second semi-final Thursday morning. Voting for both will remain open through the weekend, and we'll pit the top two against each other starting Monday morning. We'll move the voting the main poll on the right sidebar of the front page and keep it open for perhaps a week.

Here's where we've been so far and where we are now:
