It all depends on expectations - if the bar is low enough disappointment is less likely (an NIT invite, for instance).

If the past is any indicator of the future, perhaps making PSU the football rival is a mistake - winning a game every 30 years will surely make fans restless.

Setting the bar low enough will guarantee meeting goals. MD fans think MD is an elite program and that's a big problem, as we've witnessed.
