Upset Special? (a dialogue)

Hey Sunny.
Hey Adam. Any upset alerts for this weekend in college football?
Yeah, I think there'll be an upset in Champaign this week. Badgers and Illini.
So it's an upset if Illinois loses?
On the contrary, my good man. Wisconsin is in the top 5, and they have national title hopes. But Zook has the Illini rockin' right now, so I think they'll pull off the upset in front of a raucous home crowd.
I'm telling you, the upset is if Illinois loses.
How do you figure?
Urban Meyer won the title with Ron Zook's players. Ron Zook has now been at Illinois long enough to have his players and schemes in there. He got railroaded in Florida.
Nobody could have followed Spurrier. That is like trying to go onstage after Jerry Lee has set the piano on fire while James Brown put a cape around Elvis as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dick Dale, and Eddie van Halen play "Pipeline" all beneath the majestic glow of a fire consuming a left-handed Hendrix Strat.
