It was the early 80s. I was about 14 or 15 years old. I was in Fairfield Stadium for a late season game. It was FREEZING. The wind was fierce! The Herd was just winding up its umpteenth three win or less season in a row. Furman was pounding Marshall late in the fourth quarter about 45-7. I was sitting near a group of about 15 Furman fans. We may have been the only ones left in the stadium. The Furman fans were chanting, "It's great...to be...a Furman Paladin!" I was shivering and thinking, "It's not too great being a Herd fan." Things were so bleak for Marshall in those days. Many thought the school should drop the football program. For some reason I can specifically remember that game as my rock bottom point.

Come to think of it FalconFreak, the 2000 Buffalo game WAS worse than the 1994 MACC.

I was there, too. After the gun sounded I got to watch 12 year olds yell obscenities at our men in orange and brown as they left the field for the tunnel. "You suck! Go back to Ohio. Bowling Green sucks!"

This, after Buffalo just ended an (approximately) 19-game, 30-year losing streak against Division I-A schools.

That was worse than the 1994 MACC. Far worse.

I hear ya RF...it was downright brutal. I think we returned the favor in fine fashion last season with a 35-0 whitewash at Perry...28-0 at the half and I was thinking to myself "This is much much better" LOL<
"Far worse" sums it up...

GO FALCONS!!!! <img border="0" alt="[Cheers]" title="" src="graemlins/cheers.gif" />

Ya know fellas, another one that really sticks out for me and other BG fans is the 1992 loss at Ohio St...we clearly outplayed the #22 Bucks all day and let a golden opportunity slip away. 6 turnovers did the Falcons in. I have the game on tape and every time I watch it it makes me sick to think we could have easily won that game!
I was surrounded by arrogant Buckeye fans who had been drinking since daybreak...all I heard was crap like "This is sick...we should be blowing this bush league team off the field". BG was coming off the 11-1 MAC title year and had an 11 game winning streak. BG scored first but trailed 7-6 at the half. In the 4th with OSU up 17-6, Erik White hit Mark Szchlacic (spelling?) in the corner of the end zone for a td...when you stop the game on tape you can clearly see BOTH feet in the end zone and its clearly a td. The ref is standing 2 feet away and rules Mark was out of bounds. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Mad]" src="mad-flaming.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Mad]" src="mad-flaming.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Mad]" src="mad-flaming.gif" /> Not in Columbus my friend!!

At that point, OSU would have led 17-12 with the conversion to follow...with 13 min left in the game Big MR MO would have been on our side. Our D held the Bucks to 230 total yds offense and harrassed Kirk Herbstreit all day...OSU had guys like Raymont Harris, Joey Galloway, Eddie George, Steve Tovar, Big Daddy Wilkinson among others. "the big uglies" was our D line's nickname and we had an awesome secondary with Carlos Brooks, Dave Bielinski, Joe Bair and Ken Burress. Our LB's included Kevin O'Brien and Artie Manghem. We just had a great D that year and wound up 10-2...the only losses at OSU and at Wisconsin the next week (39-18 Badgers).
But man that OSU game...I always wanted to get that one back...kinda like Miami in 2000 losing 27-16 in Columbus.

Oh well, next year we get another shot at the Bucks....GO BG!

Then watching the dismal second half of the season.

#3) Leftwich beating us in 2000 with 31 seconds left on the clock. Cost us our first MACC berth.
#2) Miami last year. I was in Arizona at the time. I saw we were down 24-6 at the half. Then I saw we won on the ESPN ticker later that day? I saw the ticker at midnight and they had corrected it...Miami won? I called a buddy back in Ohio to see what happened...rest is history.
#1) Loss to first year 1-A UConn in 1999. 4th Qtr. -UCONN drove the length of the field with what seemed to be 9 consecutive passes to their TE to win the game. Most frustrating thing I've ever witnessed...
