The 25 best college football GIFs of 2012

Perhaps the most GIF'd calendar year in college football history churns to a close. Let us enshrine some looped memories.

This does mean excluding many a worthy GIF, such as a player lit'rally getting the logo knocked off his head, Collin Klein's no-look jump pass, Kent State's rare undefended self-safety, one-legged Lache Seastrunk outrunning everyone anyway and Urban Meyer looking at stuff. To the countdown, which is ranked by how much I think you like each one.

25. Are we more impressed with Derek Dooley's hands ...

... or feet?

24. This ended up deciding the game.

Georgia Tech suffered a safety while attempting a touchback, then lost to Miami in overtime.

23. Le'Veon Bell weighs 250 pounds.

And he jumps over so many things, Michigan State fans keep Le'Veon Bell-jumping-over-stuff threads.

If you've seen one CATCH OF THE DAY OF THE YEAR GIF, you've seen them all. West Virginia's J.D. Woods provides my personal favorite, but Ohio State's Devin Smith and Southern Utah's Cameron Morgan were nice too. NOTE: I did not include your team's catch, because I hate your team.

10. Lee Corso, Notre Dame logo.

9. He made it all the way to the end zone.
