Prior to the 1916 college football season, Cumberland folded its football team, but due to a scheduling obligation, they needed to suit up once more to play against Georgia Tech or risk a $3,000 fine. Cumberland's baseball team had run up the score 22-0 on GT earlier that year, so Tech head coach John Heisman wanted to teach Cumberland a lesson. Tech led 126-0 at halftime, but Heisman didn't take his foot off the gas. The GT quarterback passed for nearly 1,000 yards, and Cumberland was thoroughly embarrassed in the most lopsided college game in history.

There's something to be said for one's longevity in his respective sport, even if he doesn't achieve much success. NASCAR racer J.D. McDuffie was a fan favorite because he was a driver/owner for much of his career, but that didn't translate to success on the track. In a career spanning from 1963 to 1991, McDuffie failed to win a single race. He was killed in the NASCAR Watkins Glen race in 1991 at the age of 52 and never broke into the win column.

If you're a fan of the MLB's Atlanta Braves, you've grown accustomed to seeing manager Bobby Cox climb the steps out of the dugout and storm onto the field with a menacing glare.

Though he's ranked fourth on baseball's all-time managerial wins list and has been an MLB manager of the year four times, Cox will be remembered just as often for being the skipper who has been thrown out once every 29 games.
