Greatest team to get the biggest ass-kicking


With 11:26 in the 4th quarter of the NCAAF championship game, the almighty Alabama Crimson Tide seem to be headed to the woodshed versus Clemson. This has to qualify as one of the biggest whoopings by a seemingly invincible team ever. What else would qualify?

I'm not just looking for Cinderella upsets----after all Clemson is the #2 team----just plain old blowouts of otherwise what are or were thought to be among the greatest teams. The BIGGER the stage, the better, too (even the best Pro teams slip on a banana peel during the regular season)

Off the top of my head, Brazils 7-1 shellacking at the hands of Germany at the 2014 World Cup comes to mind.

The 1976 Stanley Cup--- The infamous Broad Street Bullies Philadelphia Flyers off 2 straight Stanley Cups got their asses beat on the scoreboard AND on the ice 4 games to zero by the rough and tough but highly talented Montreal Canadiens----the Habs would go on to win 3 more Cups in a row while the Flyers would go 0-6 in their next 6 Cup Finals.

What other Bullies got their licking?
