I start this thread under the inspiration of https://www.city-data.com/forum/spor...never-won.html ,

Would you include the

1967 Baltimore Colts (W11 L1 T2, out of playoffs due to a) losing H2H tiebreaker with Rams for Coastal Division title and b) NFL's pre WC era format of first-place-or-go-home [the AFL sent the top two teams in its two divisions to the party in 1969, its final season before the merger was completed])

1993 San Francisco Giants (103 wins, only good for second in NL West [by one game to ATL] in MLB's final season of the first-place-or-go-home-no-runners-up-get-in format)

#4 team in the country, didn't matter because you had to win the conference title to make the NCAA tourney. I am sure you can find other college basketball teams from this era that have similar resumes, but this one is near and dear to my heart!

If you’re counting teams not allowed to play because the championship final was cancelled, I’d posit the 2020 Dayton Flyers and 1994 Montreal Expos.

the Seattle Mariners won 116 games in 2001, which tied the major league record for wins set by the 1906 Chicago Cubs, and set the record for wins by an American League team. After the tragedy of 9/11 I suppose it was fate that the Yankees beat them in the ALCS.
