Swindle in the Swamp. I feel anger even now just thinking about it.
UT 2003. Sat in the Bull Gators box for the first time. Some drunken doosh who sang "Ooh Ungawa" at the top of his lungs prior to the game was cursing out Zook like a drunken sailor by the fourth quarter. But the food was good. Speaking of dooshes, Casey Clausen led the UT band in Rocky Top after the game. Man, did we suck.
Did you throw your water bottle at the refs? That game changed college football.
Wife got me tickets as my wedding gift. Sold them because I couldn’t stomach seeing Jameis eat our lunch in the Swamp. Edit: I was thinking of 2013 lol. Whoops.
No water bottle, but I was screaming. I still can't believe what I saw.
I left off losing to Memphis 17-11 in 1988 after thumping LSU the week prior and Emmitt getting hurt.
Three come to mind and all three were at different places but in this order. 1. 2007 WLOCP: I sat by myself and stayed the whole game and walked out with those filthy animals surrounding threatening me barking the whole way out. 2. 2010 LSU: Back and forth battle with a rode of emotions the whole game. LSU pulled ahead 26–14 early in the 4th quarter then Andre Debose returned a kick for a TD and we were right back in the game. Then our defense held strong and we drove down and scored with Gillislee with like 2 minutes left. Crowd was going nuts we thought it was over cause they hadn't done anything in the 4th other than the 1st drive. They drove a little bit and was going for like a 50 yard fg with around 30 sec and the place holder flips the ball behind his head and get a perfect bounce to the kicker who takes it to the house. 3. 2004 Peach bowl: It was the only game I got to see live with my dad before he passed and we drove up to Atlanta only to watch Miami score on a blocked fg and a punt return. It's the only Miami game I've been to because I refuse to go again. I remember my dad making me drive all the way back to Jax he was so pissed. We were supposed to find a hotel but he refused because of the loss.
Georgia Southern The moment I realized we were complete sh!t from top to bottom.
Was born in 1980 and was at games by ‘81, so I’ve seen some tough ones. The ‘87-‘89 losses in Jax and to the noles set the tone for my hatred there. Throw in the OM loss to begin Emmit’s final season, or the “wth” moments against Vanderbilt and Memphis, and that whole 3 years can be burned from the record, IMO. I’d say the quietest, most deflated walk out of the Swamp that I’ve ever experienced was after Aub in ‘94. Crushing, as it was described above, is a perfect description. ‘03 Swindle was probably the most infuriating, with ‘01 ut a close second, and ‘11 uga in the discussion. ‘09 Atl was sad because you could see everything was shifting, plus Tebow getting emotional, the whole rammer jammer nonsense. Negative 10 degrees outside. Bad night. And I had my two year old son at ‘13 GaSouthern, for which I’ve never forgiven myself.
I don’t personally remember it, but get a few in my Dad and mention the word Rutgers and/or Brewer...look out.
The quintessential Zook clock management. We had the ball deep in our own territory with like a minute left. After a modest gain on first, he calls timeout as if we’d picked up 30+ or were in position to bleed the remaining clock. Needless to say, an incomplete pass and stuffed run later, we were giving them the ball close to midfield with just enough time for that play. I was in disbelief.
I hate this thread.
1995 NC loss to Nebraska (it was cold as **** up in the nose bleed seats we had) Swindle (I flew cross country just for that game on Thanksgiving weekend and got served a turkey), I lost my voice for days after. 2003 @ MSU (The Zooker’s death nail). Though that’s probably a good thing since we ended up with Meyer. But I flew all the way from Seattle for that crap fest; not an easy place to get to.
Many might not remember that Brewer was a great baseball player, ending up playing in the bigs for a few years. My claim to fame is that he was 0-4 hitting against me in my high school career.
1982 Florida - UGA. Freezing breeze off the St. John’s and right up my back as I watched Herschel run all over us to win 44-0. That really sucked!
Glad you asked. Worst game for me personally would be a Richmond Spiders game in the 1960s. We were playing so badly, not trying at all, that I became enraged at the lack of effort and starting cheering ''Go you Spiders". Some drunk frat boys wanted to throw me out of the stadium. The team eventually put out enough effort to win. Least effort that I have ever seen a Gator team display.
Choke Tempe Auburn 94 -- Sanders caught the winning pass right in front of me and my buddy (third row endzone seats). Heartbreaking...
Second worst was also a loss to UT, but far different circumstances. The 2001 season ender that had been rescheduled from the week of the Sept. 11 attacks. So much hope entering that game and so much Jon Hoke futility in trying to stop the Tennessee run. The place went eerily silent at the end.
You must not have stayed until the end. You might recall that we beat Georgia the prior year, ending a six game losing streak, and our fans stormed the field and tore down the goal posts. The lack of police presence on the field allowed us to celebrate undeterred. By the time the 1985 game rolled around, the city got wise and lined the stadium with police in riot gear and drawn nightsticks. When Georgia won, the fans in the end zone pushed down the fence to crash the field. The fans in the front rows, who were well aware of the well-armed police presence in front of them, became reluctant participants in the aborted celebration, receiving a brutal clubbing at the hands of enthused law enforcement personnel. The police were swinging wildly at anything that moved, cracking skulls, etc. I will tell you that there are times when opposing fans put aside their differences during a crisis and feel empathy and compassion toward one another. This was definitely NOT one of those times. It was beautiful to watch the Georgia fans' joy and excitement over their win turn into screams of horror, pain and agony as the police unleashed their brutal assault. It was almost worth losing to watch it all unfold before us. By the way, this is a great lesson to all Gators to stay until the end of the game, even if we are losing. You never know when some opposing fan will get his ass kicked for being a loudmouth or challenging law enforcement. When it happens, you want to be there to see it.
Although I had to sit through some of the Zook Error, I only endured a few games under Muschamp in person and they were all wins. I didn't go to any of the hot garbage Mac served up. For me though, hands down worst was 2001 UT. I will go to my grave believing that if we have Earnest Graham for that game we end up with a shot at Miami for another Natty.
