A relationship with a college sports team is like a relationship with a significant other. A significant other who never does anything nice for you, who you clearly dislike but can't find a good way to leave the relationship with, and still hasn't gone to the friggin' NCAA Tournament. And then they expect you to be happy when they qualify for the TicketCity Bowl!
Well, to those of you whose hearts haven't been embittered by a million really smart guys losing in sports, do something special for your lady-types (or man-types) tonight. Us NU fans, we'll be playing a sad song for one on my guitar with pictures of former walk-ons stickered onto it that a bird landed on over the weekend.
