I wouldn't expect anything more than "low-hanging fruit" for two big reasons. First, the 2016 Senate map for Republicans looks worse that this year did for Democrats. Now this can be misleading as gubernatorial results this time around defied the map, but the key here isn't whether or not the GOP ke...

Great game, we had our chances and didn't convert. You had your chances and did. I never really liked the term "the better team won that day", because you're only as good the score and record indicates. So it's kind of fricking reduntant to say the Ags were the better team.
