    Worst seasons of all time?

    With my "beloved" Huskies nursing a 15-game winless streak and a stellar record of 3-20-1, I was wondering: what are the worst records, losing/winless streaks, conference records, etc. of all time in college hockey?

    I know about the '99-'00 Huskies team that set the NCAA record for losses and the '02-'03 Seawolves that went winless in conference play. Anyone have to sit through those seasons? Do share details

    My vote is for UAA's winless WCHA season. It's really hard to do worse than that.

    Merrimack in 06-07 went 3-27-4. Might be the worst season by a HE team since I've been following. The year before that, NU went 3-24-7. I think both are records for fewest wins since the start of Hockey East, and I'd be shocked if that MC season wasn't the worst ever in the league.

    UNH had a 3-season stretch in the late 80's where they won a total of 20 games, never breaking double-digits in the W column (even counting ties as half-wins).

    They won their first game of the season against Fairbanks and then didn't win another. You can't beat that.

    Brown went 4-21-4 in 00-01, and has a few 5 and 6 win seasons in the past decade as well.

    I don't think that is right, didn't UAA have a league win? Pretty sure they did. Where did you get your info from?

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

    In 99-00, Tech did go 4-34. IIRC two of those wins came over LSSU. I saw one of them at the GLI that year.

    I don't think you'll ever see another 35 game winless streak in one season again. So Tech has a long way to go to match that level of futility.

    Afraid not.

    A few ties, but a big goose egg in the WCHA win column.

    In '92-93 Ohio State went 5-30-3. And in 04-05, Poulin's last season at Notre Dame, they came home 5-27-6.

    Yup, I just looked it up in my yearbook. They ended the season with 6 points from 6 ties. No wonder we hate John Hill.

    Wow, how does Lake State win 18 games that year, but drop two to the worst Tech team of all time (for now)?

    I dunno. I remember watching that game at the GLI, and laughing at the LSSU girls in front of us, and telling them how pitiful it was to lose twice to a team that had 4 wins, and the blank looks on their faces.

    That Irish team was the worst thing I have ever personally witnessed, although the '03 AA team was obviously much worse. Notre Dame closed out that season on a 19 game winless streak (0-17-2) and finished up losing 9 in a row. Including a tight CCHA playoff contest to UM 10-1. Of course they finished off the Poulin era the next night forcing UM to go overtime to win the game 1-0. Go figure. To top it off they started the Jackson era out losing their first 3 times, so the winless streak only ended at a hard to fathom 22 games.

    Re: Worst seasons of all time?

    Last year Brown went 3-21-5. It was awful. Agonizing. Detrimental to my health. Brutal. Embarrassing. Painful. Pitiful. Vomit inducing. Soul killing. Unforgettable in the worst of ways. And many other colorful adjectives.

    I don't even want to think about it. Curse you for starting this thread.
