    1992 SEC Championship game.
    In hostile territory.
    Tied game late.
    Everyone trying to remember what they heard about the overtime rule as there had never been one and then Antonio "F'in" Langham with the pick six....

    I was at that Ole Miss opener....that did suck. I left for boot camp later than month....and that sucked worse!! :D

    Just off the top of my head, the Auburn game in 93 when Terry Bowden ran on the field acting like a 5-year old who just busted the piñata at his birthday party was brutal. Then in 94, when Auburn was on probation so the game wasn't on TV, I watched the game inside the Swamp (they had a big video board set up) and we lost that one too. That was brutal.

    The Tennessee game in 98 in Knoxville was awful.

    The Sugar Bowl vs. FSU in 94 sucked the big one (after we tied them in Tallahassee....and I was at that game as well).

    The Swindle in 2003 (FSU game) was a sh*t-show...but at that point we had realized those type of losses under Zook were commonplace.

    The UT game in 2004 (Dallas Baker slapping the UT players helmet game).

    I was there (in the swamp with the jumbotron) for that :fistbump:. I washed the loss out of memory, however.

    I'm not sure if I got the years right....but that sucked! We lost to Terry Bowden two years in a row! Those were actually really good Auburn teams. The probation may have cost them a shot at the NC.

        There a number of losses that kind of all go together, in the games that I saw in the 80s/early 90s. Auburn in 94 was a hard one.

        But the one that sticks out in my mind the most is Cocktail Party in 07. My Dad got free tickets from a distributor, and at that point hated going to games outside the Swamp, so he told me if I could get up there, they were mine. It was a schitty morning, my buddy Johnny and I drove up from St Pete to Jacksonville, that morning. Found out our tickets were 2 rows up UGA side, on the goal line of the mass celebration. The walk of shame afterwards going through all those dogfckers then had to get out of that piece of schit town of Jacksonville.

          1. 94 Auburn game . When Sanders got the winning TD the stadium was deathly silent . Except the Auburn section and their band. Image of little Terry Bowden dancing across the field to shake Spurriers hand burned into my brain.
          2. 2010 South Carolina when we could have won the East. I was getting food and missed Dubose run back the opening KO. After that the Cocks out scored us 36-7. Image of SEC East champ Spurrier being carried off the field also burned into my brain.

            2014 homecoming against Mizzou...and not just because they beat us by like 50 and scored literally almost every possible way imaginable but just the fact that both teams were so god awful. They scored a ton of points but all on returns or turnovers...both teams combined for like 100 yards and it is literally the worst football game i've ever attended regardless of age bracket. I've seen freshman only high school teams with far more compelling action that suck fest.

            SQ and Captains tailgate was awesome as usual though

              I don't have time to read the entire thread tonight, but UF 3 LSU 3 in 1972 in a driving rainstorm with record or near record number of fumbles by the two teams involved was pretty pathetic.

              Sitting in the stands in a driving rainstorm as a kid would not have been so bad if anything had been happening. Sadly the fumbles many of them fumbles snaps caused little to happen during the game as the score reflect. I have nothing against a tough hard fought defensive game with both defenses playing well, but again those fumbled snaps were a good part of the bad offense rather than getting to watch great defense.

                I think you have reversed them. UF lost up their in 93 when AU was on probation and there was no tv. I was at that game too. A really cheap late hit was called to set up AU's game winning FG. Rhett ran for 196 yards that day and Wuerffel passed for something like 384 yards, but UF's D wore down late in the game. The 1994 game was on televised.

                    I will throw another log on the fire. Steve Spurrier's first loss as head coach of the Gators. I was there. Neyland Stadium Knoxville. Defensive struggle with the score Tennessee 7 Florida 3 at the half. Dale Carter returned the second half kick-off 91 yards to put Tennessee up 14 to 3. The race was on with the final score 45 to 3. Yep, it was press bad. Needless to say, Spurrier learned something from that game.

                    I was there; my senior year. My new bride wouldn't go with me and I walked from the stadium to Corry Village on a dark and stormy night. Soaked and miserable for a tie.

                    I was at that one also, right before I deployed for Desert Storm. The 2nd half KO return killed us. "Rocky Top" rang out non-stop after that. It sucked! Score was actually 45-3.

                    And we will all wonder forever what would have happened had UF's DB not fallen down with the pick just before the half, but had taken the clear path to the endzone and UF had gone in to the half up 10 to 7.

                    The worst Gator game(s) I attended were almost every game coached by MooseDump or Butters... absolutely abysmal football topped off by losing to Georgia Southern at home with ZERO passing yards...
