This 100%. Also, the occasional loss is necessary to keep the UConn fanbase as a whole grounded in reality. I'm convinced that the whole "going undefeated for four straight seasons" thing was very dangerous for the expectations of fans of other UConn sports. I think those who identify as MBB-first fans would have a healthier view of the college basketball world if such sheer dominance weren't in their peripheral vision.I think the only full game I have watched was Miss St. Don't get me wrong, I pull for them, albeit very dispassionately but the fan base is so insane that I can get some satisfaction after losses.
