    How is it even a debate? It is UNI by a mile.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    At least it was on the road to an FBS team.

    I don't see the Tech game from last year on that list. That one was pretty bad.

    Losing to an FCS team on your home field is unacceptable. Especially in year 5.

    I said Colorado. We didn't just get beat, we got beat by a lot. And frankly this UNI team may very well be better than that Colorado team.

    The number of options is depressing...

    Ask yourself what was the bigger setback? It's UNI no question.

    Re: Poll: Worst loss in Rhoads era

    I forgot about the Utah loss....that's probably the worst. It wasn't a particularly good Utah team and they came in and won by like 40.

    Tech last year is the worst for me. 3-0 non-conference, playing @ home, and we lay a huge egg for the 2nd straight year. Tough to move the program forward when you lose games like that.

    Even with yesterday's loss being so fresh, Utah still probably ranks first for me, but UNI would be the choice for the reason you stated.

    I guess that qualifies as "other" — TT 2012 example might be more "how" than "what."

    No doubt UNI. Pretty much dampens the complete season.

    Re: Poll: Worst loss in Rhoads era

    The problem with this UNI loss isn't that it is a loss to UNI. We've been there, and others have lost to 1AA teams too. The problem is that it instantly killed a lot of momentum and fan good will and enthusiasm that we desperately needed. If this was 4 or even 3 years ago it is an unfortunate blip. But man, there was so much energy in this program that that loss just sucked dry. And that is why this was a horrible loss.
