Alabama kicker Adam Griffith knows what it’s like to watch your attempted kick turn into the game-winning score for the other team. So if anyone understands Michigan punter Blake O’Neill’s pain, it might be him.

On the final play of the 2013 Iron Bowl, with the score tied 28-28, Griffith’s 57-yard field goal attempt fell short and was caught in the back of the end zone by Auburn’s Chris Davis, who proceeded to return it for the game-winning touchdown. It gave Auburn the SEC West title, and the Tigers went on to play for the national championship. The play has become known as the “Kick Six.”

On Saturday, with 10 seconds left and Michigan holding on to a 23-21 lead, O’Neill dropped a punt snap, then couldn’t pick the ball up cleanly. The ball went into the hands of Michigan State’s Jalen Watts-Jackson, who returned it for the winning score as time expired.

Both specialists received their share of angry messages from fans following the losses.

Griffith sent O’Neill a message on Twitter on Monday, telling him to keep his head up.

Griffith bounced back from the Kick Six, and has been the Crimson Tide’s starting kicker for the past two seasons. Last year, he helped the Crimson Tide win the SEC title.
