America’s Sports Artist Rick Rush has woven several monumental moments from the 2012 National Championship game into his painting entitled Absolutely Alabama. At the foreground, running back and Offensive MVP Eddie Lacy (#42) spins around and breaks through the Notre Dame Fighting Irish defense on a twenty-yard touchdown run on the opening drive of the game. From left to right: Barrett Jones (#75), A.J. McCarron (#10), D.J. Fluker (#76), Anthony Steen (#61), Eddie Lacy (#42), and Chance Warmack (#65). The Notre Dame player at the foreground is Manti Te'o.
The middleground of Absolutely Alabama features two vignettes. On the right side, Ha-ha Clinton Dix (#6) intercepts a pass deflected by the hands of Dee Miliner (#28). On the left, the play following the turnover is depicted as Amari Cooper (#9) is seen catching a 34-yard touchdown pass.
In the background of Absolutely Alabama, a mass of Crimson Tide players celebrate Alabama’s 15th National Championship, and gather around Coach Nick Saban as he holds the Coach’s Trophy.
