5. 2006 Sugar Bowl. Can I count this? West Virginia rips UGA's offense in the first half. Bad officiating nips Georgia's comeback short in the second half.

4. Division II playoffs, 2001. Valdosta State is undefeated and averaging 49 points per game (and giving up an average of 13). This includes a 70-12 blowout on the road of #1 ranked Delta State. They host Catawba College. VSU's defense collapses after a big lead and Catawba wins in overtime, 37-34. One of those instances where a team was just too good during the regular season and faced no competition until the playoffs, where they weren't prepared. As Division II television coverage was even more primitive than it is now, I got to see this thing in person.

3. Game 7 of the 1997 NLCS. Screw you, Eric Gregg.

2. Game 4 of the 1996 World Series. It's worse in retrospect because Jim Leyritz's homer effectively ended Mark Wohlers' career. He was never the same after that, though he did have a statistically good 1997. Yankees would win the next two as Atlanta was completely deflated.

1. Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. I have two Braves highlight tapes from 1991. I still can't watch anything after Game 5 on either one.
