I learned that from my time as a fan in the dark era before 1995. This way, I find myself often pleasantly surprised by NU games, and rarely disappointed.
That said, I really, really want them to beat Missouri. I hope they read Malcolm Gladwell's most recent piece in the New Yorker.

And that would be hard to do without defeating the Wildcats.
BTW, thank you (and James Rao) for adding Worlds of Fun to the site. It really is a great little park that just keeps improving.
