    Any of the Indiana Pacers playoff loses to the Knicks or Bulls in the mid to late 90's.

    Also the Colts AFC championship game losses to the NE Pats.

    I just really for some reason detest teams from the east coast.

    That's definitely in my top 5. I agree that that was probably the best OSU team of my lifetime, and one of the best teams I've seen anywhere.

    UK/Duke, 1992, followed closely by the Bengals second Super Bowl loss to the 49ers. Those two losses took awhile to get over.

    I had seats in row seven on the 40 yard line behind the OSU bench (before the stadium renovations) that season. The punt that hit Nate Clements in the back fell right in front of me. Sickening. I remember just fuming for days. Look at the names on that team especially the defense. Several of those guys are still in the NFL.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Seriously not trying to rub it in, because I respect the heck out of that UK team.

    However, it's amazing how one person's lowest sports moment can be one of another guy's (mine) most memorable good experiences.

    Two words: Domenik Hixon

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, youtube his name and Akron. Watch video. That one hurt for literally a month.

    Illinois/North Carolina is a close second.

    I don't remember a whole lot of details about that season, but WVU's defense was never good enough to make them the best team in the country, was it?

    What an incredible loss and probably the key in getting Cooper fired a few years later. I guess it shouldn't be that bad now that we have Coach Tressel. That loss absolutely shocked me to the core though.
    2006-07 Loss to Florida in the BCS Title Game. Florida came out and beat the snot out of OSU. OSU came in slow and lazy, something I never thought you would see out of a Tressel coached team. Troy Smith played one of the worst games of his career.

    2007-08 Loss to LSU. Ohio State didn't have the talent but was playing well. They started the game out in a flurry up 10-0 and could have been better hand OSU not got dinged for a couple of penalties. After that they morphed into a bad team.

    2005 Losses to Texas and PSU. Most talented team that I can remember. They had 1st round picks all over the roster in Holmes, Gonzales, Ginn, Whitner, Hawk, Carpenter, and Wells. Not to mention a Heisman winning QB. If Hamby catches the TD pass in the endzone OSU wins the game against Texas. Then the loss to PSU ended all hopes of OSU getting lucky and getting back into the BCS Championship mix. It wouldn't have mattered, but to have hope is a good thing.

    The second Super Bowl loss to the Niners and U of L's Final Four loss to Michigan St. Those hurt.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Ha. I was at this game as well. Most significant play Roy Hall made in his entire career.

    Common misconception about that team was that they were all offense and no defense. Compared to their 2006, the offense actually struggled quite a bit that year, as Steve Slaton had appeared to have lost a step, and the offensive line started to wear down. Their defense was what actually made them such a great team. NO ONE ran on them, and their pass D was slightly above average if I remember right. The defense was absolutely loaded that year with a lot of 5th year seniors, and tons of playmakers, just not a lot of NFL talent. In the only two games they lost, they gave up 13, and 21 points.

    IIRC Roy Hall caught the first TD pass against Michigan that year. It was after UM had marched down the field and scored first. IMO that was his most significant play. But yea him tackling Ginn in the end zone was idiotic.

    1. 2001 Daytona 500, never been so sad over something in sports than what I was that year Dale Earnhardt died in the last turn of his favorite race, literally cried like a baby the next morning over his loss.

    2. Game 1 of the 1995 NLCS, still remember literally crying when Reggie Sanders struck out to end the game, I knew we had lost the series when that strikeout occured.

    3. 2007 Backyard Brawl-Pitt 13, WVU 9, literally cried and punch the couch over and over when it finally hit me that our legit chance at a national championship was taken away.

    4. Game 2 the other night-knew we were finished, should have never been in the postseason, and I never was so melancholy about driving to a Reds game the way I was on Sunday. Didn't cry on this one but man was I depressed (and still) all weekend, what a way to ruin your weekend. I really didn't want this season to come to an end.

    5. 1999 one game playoff, I really didn't want that season to come to an end.

    Maybe the past three editions of his Michigan squads has clouded my judgment. The mental conception I have of a Rich Rodriguez team has a flashy offense and an awful defense. I also don't know what his reputation with WVU was in big games. It seems like it had to be mixed, no?
