Best Team(s) never to win a championship.

Recommended Posts

Just like the thread title says. Inspired by me posting about the bills.

 

I think that stretch of Buffalo teams from 89-92 is the best team never to win a superbowl.

 

In the NBA its clearly the Stockton-Malone Jazz.

 

MLB is a toughie and NHL ill have to think about.

 

Discuss.

Miami University Men's Ice Hockey 2007-10.

 

Thats a fair point. Id argue they were pretty good before 07 even. I think eventually theyll get over the hump tho.

There are plenty more college bball teams that didnt win a title that were better. UNLV in 91', Ewing's Hoyas, the Fab Five, KU in 97', and Larry Bird's Indiana State team all come to mind. But I'll take Phi Slama Jamma as the best team to not win a title by a hair over that UNLV team.

 

And as for the MLB... maybe the Big Red Machine? But the 01 Mariners and the Orioles team that lost to the Miracle Mets cant be far behind at all.

 

And the 07 Patriots team that went undefeated in the regular season is probably right there as the best NFL team to never win it.

It makes you wonder how the '72 Dolphins would have fared across 19 games...

The big red machine is the term for the Reds of 70 to '76. Won it twice.

 

Good call on the 01 Mariners tho.

Agree with the Malone/Stockton Jazz pick, but the 2002 Kings come in a distant second.

 

Teams that retire Vlade Divac's number arent the best at anything.

 

Ever.

Every franchise is entitled to retire a Brad Davis. End of discussion.

1994 Nittany Lions.

Any team from Oregon ever.

 

... but they are generally far from the best... since they generally lose.

1983 Nebraska Cornhuskers. Turner Gill, Mike Rozier and Irving Fryar in the same backfield. Beastly.

2009-10 Kansas Men's Basketball.

 

1995 KC Chiefs

 

01 Mariners

 

01-03 Oakland A's

 

1980 Kansas City Royals

 

The beginning of time-Present St. Louis (gross) Blues

 

And a shame they never got invited to the tournament: the 2006 Missouri State Bears.

There should be no reason why anyone is surprised this team didnt win a national championship. Many teams struggle with in conference play on the road during the regular season but to go into overtime with Colorado shows that this team clearly had a problem with focusing on the task at hand which definitely doesnt bode well for tourney play....just sayin
