It wasn't 1999 vs. UNLV, but it was close.

I don't have words for what just happened. I'd be in shock if it wasn't so obviously the most-Baylor loss in the history of losses.

THERE IS NO FREAKING WAY THAT SHOULD EVER HAPPEN, BAYLOR. ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS NOT THROW THE BALL OUT OF BOUNDS WITH :01 LEFT AND YOU DID THAT. YOU FOUND THE ONLY POSSIBLE WAY YOU COULD LOSE THE GAME IN REGULATION AND LOST IT. THE STRING OF CONSECUTIVE, ESCALATING FAILURES THAT HAD TO OCCUR IN SEQUENCE FOR THAT OUTCOME TO OCCUR IS MIND-BOGGLING, AND YET, UNSURPRISING.

(For those that didn't see, Baylor and Kansas State were tied at 61 with :01 left in the game, so Baylor brought in Jacob Neubert to throw a football-style pass the length of the court. He did so, left it long, and it went out of bounds at the other end, bringing the ball all the way back under Kansas State's basket with :01 remaining once again. Kansas State's shooter hit a wide-open 3 as the buzzer sounded and Baylor lost 64-61.)

It's not 1999 vs. UNLV because nothing will ever top that and there was no guarantee we'd win without the abject failure that was Kevin Steele personified, but it's close. It's damn close.
