This game was lost over the last weekend. Swept and scoreless against the Bison on Saturday and Sunday. Then have to sit around for three days in Fargo and stew over it. Not a good situation to be in. Finals week pressure probably did not help much either. Did they take their final exams before of after the long road trip? IPFW finished up finals last week and was loosey goosey for this one.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));
