Football Moment 2012 Bracket (Championship Round)

OSU FootballWe’ve finally made it here, all the way back when this started in March Madness — the quest to determine the most spectacular moments during the 2012 Football Season (see all the previous entries here).

First, we have to crown the two division winners. For the greatest Defensive/Special Team moment of 2012, the nod goes to the force of nature, star scholar at Linebacker University, Ryan Shazier, with his fourth-and-goal stop of Wisconsin’s Monte Ball in Ohio State’s thrilling victory over those dirty Badgers. Nothing during the Bielema era was sweeter than the past two gut-punching defeats at the hands of the Ohio State defense.

For the greatest Offensive Moment of 2012, we give the game ball (and our hearts) to Kenny G for his manufacturing a comeback-drive (and subsequent win in OT) against Purdue. This, in my mind, was a bit of an upset. Even though I seeded Kenny over Devin Smith’s catch at Miami, I really thought you fans would deem Devin’s one-handed wonder the greatest football moment of 2012. But then, I realized that MotSaG readers are some of the smartest football fans out there, and you realize that Kenny G’s heroics did not happen in a vacuum, but actually came to represent the 2012 season as a whole — a gritty, determined football team that did not quit. And for that, we salute you, Kenny Guiton.

So now that brings us to the Championship Round. There are no losers here, but One Moment must be crowned. So join us now in deciding the Most Amazing Moment of the 2012 Ohio State Football Season:
