Friday Upsets

March 31, 2018

Friday, Friday–upsets day!

Again in a Friday night national semi (this time Notre Dame, last year it was Mississippi State, the team that will face Notre Dame in the woman’s final tomorrow night) the mighty Connecticut women’s basketball team has fallen.

Two weeks ago on a Friday night, Maryland Baltimore County shocked Virginia and over 38 years ago on a Friday, the United States Olympic hockey team edged the great Soviet team, in an Olympics “semi.”

None of these games had money lines, not a good outcome for someone who would have taken the huge underdogs “small,” but at big odds, in all four cases.

There are more important things, that goes without saying, but these missed, never allowed opportunities hurt, compounded by the massive hype given the upsets, in all four instances.
