2006 OU vs Texas A&M - down 4 with 3 minutes left, 3 & 1 at the goal line, we have javorski lane, 6' 250lbs running back who set the school record for rushing TDs, we run the option...4th down? We kick for 3, trying to get the ball back, Fail!
What are the close games that were nail biters and the team fumbled the opportunity? I recall LSU with Les mismanaging the clock, and ND giving USC an extra play the got them into the end zone, Nebraska leaving 2 seconds on the clock for UT to kick a field goal and play in the NC, what are others out there?
2008 UF vs Ole Miss
UF up like 17-7 at half
Percy fumbles like 3x in the third quarter
Ole Miss gets some big plays from McCluster and Hodge to get back in it
Down 31-24, UF scores but XP blocked, 31-30
UF gets the ball back in the last minute and is close to game winning FG range
4th and 1 from about the 35-40, everyone in the stadium knows its a Tebow run ... and for probably the only time in his college career, Tebow doesn't get the yard
Ole Miss wins 31-30, first sec win in 2 years
Of course, after the game, Tebow delivers The Promise and UF goes on to win the national championship
Of course, my all-time favorite Dooley moment: Vols one play away from beating LSU in Death Valley ... 13 players on the field
FSU Ambassador to the masses
All of them before 2009, and a few since.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
lets see weve got to have some of the most famous and painful
Wide Right 1
Wide Right 2
2010 vs UNC. missed 50 yard kick
2011 vs UVA. missed 45 yard kick
.................................im noticing a trend here
ill do one for UF
Choke at Doak. no reason they should have lost that one and one of the best comebacks ever.(it was a tie but ask any UF fan and theyll say it felt like a crushing loss)

I remember those missed FGs lol was it the same kicker on those first 3? If so, why keep putting him up to bat?
2005 Rose Bowl
"The scoring was even 14-14 at halftime. The second half began with quarterback Vince Young scoring on the Wolverines with a 60-yard touchdown run. Michigan held a 10-point lead in the third quarter. Both teams traded scores and it looked as Michigan would take this game with a late go ahead field goal in the fourth quarter. However, enough time remained for Texas to win. Driving 47 yards in 10 plays, Texas had one final chance. Dusty Mangum's 37-yard field goal wobbled through the uprights as time expired."
no. i believe it was 3 different guys. all those missed kicks were spread across the late 80s and early 90s. we make those we have 5 MNCs and miami has 2. we were the 2 best teams in the coutry those years and either team would have rolled in the MNC game
I would type up a response for Michigan State... but it would be so long that it would crash the 247 servers.
2009 home against USCw sticks out recently. Punted inside our own 40 I don't know how many times and kicked a FG from the half-inch line, then gave up a 95-yard TD drive in the final minute to a freshman scrub QB when the game shouldn't have even been close.
1998 against Michigan State takes it, though. We had the best team in the country playing at home with a 15-point lead in the third quarter, in complete control. MSU punting to us and the ball hits off the back of Nate Clements' shoulder pads as he's running with the gunner (image that I've never been able to purge from my memory), MSU recovers and scores a TD two plays later. Ended up losing to a team that went 6-6 and didn't even make a bowl game. The most inexplicable, painful loss of my lifetime.
"Leaders & Legends? Really? How about just name the divisions, Ohio State & everyone else." -Colin Cowherd
0% chance I'm going to relive it and break it down, but the 2010 Iron Bowl. No doubt
As a Gamecock fan there are too many to count. It happens literally every season. Even last year we had LSU on the ropes in Baton Rouge and let them comeback and steal it from us. We would have been going to ATL for another shot at the SEC Championship had we held on to that lead.
Some memorable ones from recent memory:
- 2006 at Florida. Lost 17-16. Jarvis Moss blocked a field goal at the end of the game. I believe he had another blocked kick in the game as well. This is after he failed a drug test that week. For some strange reason he wasn't suspended until after our game? hmmm
- 2009 at Georgia Lost 41-37. Of course we had a blocked extra point during the game that forced us to go for a TD in the waning seconds of the game. We got down near the goal line...within the 10 I believe. Garcia throws to Wes Saunders on 4th down but Curran batted it down. Garcia had an open lane and could have ran it in.
- 2010 at Kentucky. Lost 31-28. The week after defeating #1 Alabama. All of the analysts said trap game and they were right. Lattimore dominated the first half with over 100 yards receiving and 100 rushing. He injured his ankle and was removed from the game. In the second half Randal Cobb torched our DBs to go ahead by 3. Garcia tried to hit a nobody receiver in the end zone but it was intercepted.

2 secs added....
Henne to Manningham
2005 Michigan game costing PSU an undefeated season.
2005 Bush Push game. They cheated to win but alas...Rockne was looking down and made sure that entire season didn't even count. One less Heisman winner too.
Redemption and karma wrapped into one, they ended up getting what they deserved.
As much as this hurts.... Our 2010 opening game loss to FCS opponent Jacksonville State..... 49-48.....
The Future Is Bright! Hotty Toddy
2010 vs. Wisconsin.
The Hawkeyes came into the game 2-0 in conference play and 5-1 overall after being a preseason top-10 team coming off an Orange Bowl victory. Their only loss on the year had been at Arizona, but that was largely dismissed because it was a close game in a tough environment. The Hawks were still expected to be Rose Bowl contenders. Late in the game, Iowa led Wisconsin 30-24 and had stopped the Badgers on 3rd down to bring up a 4th and 4 and from Wisconsin's own 26 yard line. Everyone in Kinnick Stadium knew Wisconsin was about to run a fake punt. Everyone, that is, except Kirk Ferentz. Wisconsin's punter ran 17 yards for the first down. Later in the drive, the Buckeyes converted another 4th down, and Montee Ball rushed for a TD with 1:06 to play. The XP gave Wisconsin a 1-point lead, and Iowa's 2-minute drill ineptitude caused them to run out of time and fall 31-30. Wisconsin would go on to play in the next three Rose Bowls, while Iowa's program has taken innumerable steps backward since.
Also, that was the game that launched Montee Ball's career. Going into that day, he had 7 career TDs midway through his sophomore year. After that TD against Iowa, Ball scored 14 more times in 5 more games in '10 and 61 times in his final two years at Wisconsin to became the leader in career TDs in FBS history.
