"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

I can't start a thread, but Dan Hicks now will be the voice of the Irish.

If everyone from M comes back, they would have better odds than UK to win it all. A great recruiting class vs. NCAA runner up with everyone back? Come on.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||what point did I miss?||
you'll never convince me or anyone that a 3 point favorite winning is an upset. Team A is -3 vs. Team B. Team A wins, is that an upset? An arbitrary number in front of a teams name(seed or poll ranking) does not determine if its an upset or not
"Lines aren't meant to predict games; they are meant to get equal betting on both sides."--that is absurd. Of course it is to get equal betting on both sides. But there is a reason Minnesota is -3 and not UCLA. The team Vegas/Offshore expects to win is the favorite.
And you make it seem like I am saying every 11 seed winning is not an upset, this is a fluke game because of an injury to UCLA.

you say 'The definition of an upset is when the team that is expected to win loses.'
so If Minnesota is a 3 point favorite, they would be the team that is expected to win. Therefore not an upset.

hmmm....Duke with better odds than Zaga. So, you are wrong on both accounts.

Seeding is overrated. If Duke plays Gonzaga in the Final Four and wins is that an upset? No. Duke is better team. UCLA's best player is out. Would hardly be am upset if they lose.

Gophers are 3 point favorites. Not an upset if they win.

UM -11, -750 moneyline. Seems high with the D we have been playing lately.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Not much Ravens could do||
Boldin wasn't going to restructure his contract, so every team knew they had to cut him. A 6th round pick when Ravens have zero leverage is not bad.

I'm rooting for Wisconsin. Don't want Sparty to have a shot at a share of the title.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||DMo/Burke combo||
Also Technologically inept. A DMo/Burke combo 'get the f off our court' would be sweet.

I find it is easier to 'act like we've won before in person'. It is tough to resist talking a little smack to the whiners on FB or Twitter.
