    Baylor football did not win a Big XII road game until 2005

    They started the Big XII with a 37-game conference road losing streak. Holy cow!

    P.S. I'll leave off who they ended the streak with.

    I was just looking through old schedules and thought that was incredible. I mean, that is horrible. 37 games in a row lost on the road.

    Some of us are still bitter about Greg Coleman fumbling on the north goaline to end that streak.

    Greg Coleman.... ahhhhh the memories.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    The ball broke the plane. If that game is played with instant replay, we probably win. Just like the Missouri (yes, I was there and saw how bad we got screwed on Paris's pick 6 that called back) and KU (that was a TD by Blythe) games that year.

    Of course the play that still haunts me is Shawn Bell, the slowest QB not named "Joel Klatt" in Big 12 history picking up 16 yards on the ground to ice the game on a 3rd and 15. Gotta love the Skladany Prevent.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Oh come on - everyone knows that Marv Seiler is the slowest QB in Big 8/Big 12 history - the guy being so slow that Nebraska defenders completely mistimed their tackles on a simple run down the sidelines...

    All of the items you have mentioned made me so mad at the time. Just horrible calls, absolutely horid. From the refs to our old coaches... tough times.

    We were right there, just needed a tiny, tiny nudge to get over the hump... Still mad.

    Yeah, Coleman did break the plane on that particular play.....replay would have given us the touchdown. Damn.

    Then someone posts about that freaking kick in the nuts KU Game. Blythe ******* scored...... unreal that they missed that call. Only cost us a trip to the B12 Title Game and an even bigger bowl appearance....a-la the Cotton. Thanks B12 Officiating.

    Now I will be angry for the rest of the day! Here's looking forward to getting some revenge on KU this year.

    Still remember that play like it was yesterday. We jammed the line of scrimmage and they ran an incredible bootleg. Our ENTIRE defense bit on the fake - unbelievable.

    I was leaving the Big 8 out of it, ***.

    The worst screw jobs from the refs that year happened at Mizzou, and a lot of people don't talk about it because the game wasn't televised, so only those of us who were there for that nut kick saw it live.

    We're up 7 with about a minute left. Mizzou is driving with Chase Daniel seeing his first bit of PT ever. Throws an out to the sideline, Paris breaks on the ball, rips it away from the receiver and goes for a pick 6. State crowd is going WILD. That's the clincher, right? Nope. Refs rule, and I'm not making this up, that the receiver was down by contact and the play was dead. No whistle. No nothing. It was an interception.

    Mizzou keeps possession, gets the TD to send it to OT, Shaggy goes shank-o-potomus.

    I remember listening to this on the radio. I thought I remember John and Eric saying they ruled that his forward progress had stopped and that's why they ruled it dead. Which is even more ridiculous. Not that it matters, it's a hose job either way. When I watched it later on Cyclone Replay I was just stunned. One of the reasons I didn't feel sorry for Pinkel at all the next year after his "we won that game" rant.
