2001 S10 Died and Wont Start???

I have a 2001 S10 pickup 4.3. I was driving home on the highway then out of nowhere my truck just shut off, it down shifted and the motor just quit running. My lights and radio and all electrical was all on, so i popped the hood and noticed that the positive cable was all the way tight, but it still had enough connection to power everything. I tightened it and tried starting. It would turn over with great compression but wouldnt start at all. I got a new battery and still.... it would turn over but wouldnt start. I checked all the fuses, and they are good, i checked the fuel pump and its fine, you hear it turn on when you turn the key. So now I am stuck. What sensor could just, out of the blue, go bad? Some say it could be the coil. The truck was never acting up, never showed any signs or nothing, out of nowhere driving 60 on the highway boom!, engine dies.

The no start issue is what happened on my 00 ZR2 when the distributor cracked the back ear broke off. Would let the cap bobble and burnt a hole through the rotor button. Which then it finally died.
