Gravy game

This is our first Gravy Game in a long time. Maybe a really, really long time, depending on how you look at it. What's a Gravy Game? It's a combination of two things:

1) A game you're not supposed to win, because your opponent is really awesome.
2) A game you really don't have to win.

There's also two additional stipulations: you have to have the tourney bid locked up, and you have to have been eliminated from conference title contention. More or less, a Gravy Game boils down to a game against a really tough opponent on the road where a win, while nice, really isn't necessary. We're placing a bet, but it's all house money.
