    My worst game, and best game, ever attended would be the 2009 ut game. This is the game Kiffin coach that we should have wiped the floor with and barely escaped with a win. It was a miserable game: it was so hot that day, the game sucked, Tebow fumbled going into the endzone making the score seem closer. It seemed like nothing would go right that day.

    The reason that it's also the best (most memorable) game I attended: it's the last game I went to with my dad before he passed.

      #1: The 1993 game against FSU. Gators were on the comeback and "Big Mo" was on our side. 3ed down and FSU was backed up deep in their own territory. Ward is under heat, but somehow manages to slip out to his left. Freshman Dunn sneaks down the sideline, catches the pass from Ward, and out races all gator defenders to the end zone. All hope of denying FSU their first MNC went up in smoke.
      The gator crowd went from deafening loud to church mice quiet in a heart beat.

      #2: The 1998 game in Tallahassee. Nolie qb Weinke is on the sideline, wearing a horse collar for his busted neck. Little known Outzen, aka "the rooster" is filling in and the gators had him clearly in their sights. A fumble recovery by the gators in the FSU end zone is somehow ruled a safety instead of a td. Then Peter Warwick took over the game with a td catch, and then a td pass to a Nolie who somehow managed to slip behind all UF defenders and stroll into the end zone. Had to exit the damn place listening to "Seminole Winds" blaring over the loud speakers.

        Your #1 actually took place in 1993.

        Worst I have attended:

        3) 1999 AL at The Swamp fumbled punt return, missed extra point in OT
        2) 1998 @ UT - UF fumbled 14 times (it felt like 14) they stormed the field.
        1) 1993 @ AU - Danny threw two INT's deep in their endzone, one a pick six. Homecooked late hit penalty. I still don't know why the most productive running back of the Spurrier era was on the sideline and we were running 5 wides to get a couple of yards in the fourth quarter. Everybody had to respect Errict Rhett, if he was on the field.

        I avoided this thread long enough. Hands down, being at the 1985 Florida-Georgia game watching our first ever number 1 ranking go down the crap hole losing 24-3. That wasn't the worst part for me. It was watching the Gator fans getting their ***** kicked by UGA fans as they were dumb enough to storm the field with them.

        I was at the game, too. Prothro snapped his leg in half in the endzone, (thankfully) untouched. The 'Bama fans were good to us. The height and slope of the stadium where we were seated had to be experienced to be believed. Anyone falling onto the seat in front of them would have continued down 9 or 10 rows further, at least. We got pasted.

        No matter how many times I look at this thread it always comes back as The Swindle in The Swamp, for me. God I just remember the entire stadium being in complete disbelief! My friends and I lost our minds, not to mention anything about the effects of the alcohol... remember having words with more than a few Seminole fans on the way out! Still in complete disbelief to this day

          I always viewed our DC, Pruett, as the problem in that game.
