Yep. A trap game implies that a team is looking past an opponent to the following opponent.

Implying that @ DePaul is a trap because MU was looking forward to facing Butler 8 days later ... not very impressed that Seth Davis didn't even have the grasp of that.

I think it also implies taking an opponent for granted following a win over much tougher team. 

Sort of like our Providence game a couple of years ago after beating #1 Villanova.

Huge program win over Villanova followed by a road game against a lightly regarded opponent you already beat? Maybe MU wasn't fully looking ahead to Butler, but it's not difficult to understand Davis' logic here.

This.  Trap game = game before a big game
Letdown game = game after a big game
