I gotta put Warren Morris in there!
it's been mentioned several times, but that was not lucky. let's, for the sake of argument, say it wasn't a homerun and only a double. the game is tied with morris on 2nd base. morris batted .400 for the season. he hit .369 in 95 with 8 home runs. there's a difference in a lucky play and a clutch play. a game winning home run is not lucky. i've always thought it was a disservice to morris as a player when people make it out to be he was the least likely guy to come up with a clutch hit when he was arguably the best contact hitter on the team outside of eddy furniss and maybe jason williams.
2000 Bama game where the refs go out of their way to look at the screen in the stadium. To figure out a call.
yeah and also, just to add more to morris' value as a player
- that year he was drafted in the 5th round of the draft
- he was the starting 2nd basemen for team USA in the olympics, where he led the team in hitting with a .409 average and 5 home runs in 9 games
- he was runner up for the ROY for the Pirates
- had a 5 year MLB career where he had a career .267 average
i'm done. sorry, i just hate the revisionist history of warren morris. it was arguably the most memorable moment in college baseball history, but it just gets old hearing the "omg, that was his only home run of the season." it makes for a good story telling it like that, but that tends to happen when you miss most of the season with a broken wrist.
How about early 90's Vandy @ TS? Vandy about to go in for a one yard score to ice it, and the dude fumbles to Wayne Williams @ the goal line. A HORRIBLE Vandy team.
