*** As John Henning points out, just because it is negative doesn't make it negative. That semifinal round WAS pretty devastating for Cornell fans.
Context is everything..... JJH
I think 'disappointing' is a better description than 'devastating' regarding the semi-final round at NCAAs for Cornell fans. In order to catch Penn State, the Big Red would have had to win some toss-up bouts, which didn't happen. It's not like some of our heavily favored guys fell apart. Plus, there were no visible temper fits thrown after some close losses, requiring unsportsmanlike team point penalties, for the Big Red. That, could be 'devistating' to a team's image and long-term fortunes (unless a Brands is coaching).
