    Have any of you ever seen a collapse like this before? I'm curious what the equivalent is in other sports as I'm only a passing fan of soccer (Attend a few Sounders game each year)

    #1, Undefeated, at Home, 4-1 lead at the 70th minute and you lose in the NCAA Tournament that you were a heavy favorite to win? Plus all legit goals. Crazy

    This comes close, but it's more difficult to score in soccer.

    Up 3 to 1 with less than a minute to go. They lose.

    However, this is the national championship game.

    That was some nice goals, but a couple there was piss poor goalkeeping (at this level).

    A couple of years ago, a country (can't remember who) in the African Cup of Nations was up 4-0 in the 88th minute and settled for a 4-4 draw.
