Usually after a tough unexpected Ute loss (Oregon and Cal from last year come to mind),

all the Ute fans in my office are in deep sorrow and we share each other's misery.

Today, no one else in the office besides me seems to even be aware of last night's results or understand the implications.

Meanwhile in Paraguay, everyone is down (lost at HOME to Venezuela who was previously winless on the road in this qualifying round), as well as in Chile (2 time defending South American champions), and in Holland (made final match in 2010 and semi-finals in 2014.)

Tough part is that unlike many sports (where the next year brings new hope) we wait 4 more years for another chance to qualify.
