Daniel Moore, for those of you unfamiliar with Tuscaloosa’s Thomas Kinkade, has earned some measure of fame in SEC country for his oil-paint depictions of glorious moments in Crimson Tide football lore. This offseason, however, he’ll take a rare detour from Rammer Jammerian subject matter to focus on a surprising new project: A portrait of Johnny Football besting Alabama in the Tide’s only loss of 2012. (As the A&M loss didn’t cost ‘Bama a trip to the title game, we suppose he can afford to be gracious.)

Moore’s paintings typically carry simple, sturdy titles, such as “Crimson Dynasty,” “Maximum Block” or “The Winning Connection,” and because it is Tuesday and we literally have nothing better to do, we set out to collect suggestions from our readership for possible titles to adorn this new work. Cast your vote for one of six submissions after the jump:

Like the Sooners said, you can protect against the "Run and Shoot", but you can't protect against Manziel.  Gig'em

Whatever it's named, I hope it hangs in the Gig-Em-Heim Museum someday.

I don't know what to call it but the most dramatic play was in the opening drive of the game.  It was 3rd and long.  The crowd noice was deafening when Johnny broke through into sacred Tide territory.  It was as gutsy a run that I ever seen.
