Would they react that way if Tech lost to the New England Patriots?

Seriously. Would any Tech fan by upset and kicking and screaming if we lost in a game, exhibition or not, to the New England Patriots? I'm doubting it because all of the sane ones would have reasonable expectations about the outcome. If this is true, then it's really just a matter of degree and my point still stands. I don't believe people just react this way to any loss unless their expectations were unrealistic.

Let me put it another way: if we lose to BC, I say, have at it. Climb on this board and bitch and moan. Whine away. In fact, we'll have a contest to see who can whine the most. I'll join in. But a loss to BC for this team is entirely different than a loss to the #2 team in the country, the defending national champs.
