I really have to laugh because all the people that dismiss the Wojo to vatech rumors as being completely bunk totally clamp on to the players transferring rumors and run with it

How is it a "false definition"?

The #1 definition in the Urban Dictionary? The one that is its MOST common use?

1. A toss up, a roll of the dice.

You might not LIKE how the term "crapshoot" is most commonly used but there you have it. And based on that, you're wrong. Period.

Urban Dicitionary....are you unnatural carnal knowledgeing serious?   I mean, are you really unnatural carnal knowledgeing serious?  A new low.  LOL

Urban Dictionary....my God.

It also says  "The stock market is a crapshoot."   Well if that is the case, why in the hell do we need stock brokers or people in that field at all....eh?

Right. All the comments here about "natty" are not realistic. I agree. And I am optimistic that others are overly optimistic  including you, chicks.

You don't understand the meaning of the word then based on your second sentence.

What's wrong with the urban dictionary? Not traditional enough for you?

Based on the most common use of the term crapshoot you're still wrong. Period. But keep moving the goalposts.

Life is a crapshoot, so obviously the NCAA tourney is, too. It's part of life.

It isn’t a legitimate dictionary.  That’s what is wrong with it.  You know damn well if I used it or someone else, you would say it is illegitimate, because it is.  People provide definitions at Urban Dictionary, not scholars or lexicographers in a legitimate dictionary.

I didn’t move the goalposts at all.  You have a faulty definition of equal outcome which is not the case for how it is used as a description.  Keep trying though....maybe you can find a comment on Facebook and say that is a definition,

It's a crapshoot on whether or not a scoop thread will get derailed by a stupid argument.

Part of it...yes.  All of it, no.

Not that hard really.  Luck on some calls.  Luck on a few missed free throws that could have won for other team. Etc.  Lick is part of sports, by no means is it the only reason a team wins, nor did I ever suggest that is the case.

If you're going to dispute Urban Dictionary, you might as well concede that luck doesn't actually exist. It's just a human construct to explain that which we have not yet been able to quantify. The same way lightning was once attributed to Zeus or Thor, or storms were acts of deities, or assists & blocks weren't recorded as stats.

A shot falling or not falling isn't luck, it's whether or not the shooter put the appropriate trajectory on the ball. The NCAA draw isn't luck, it's based on your season performance & the rules that guide the selection process.

There's no luck, no crapshoot, none of it. Those that win do so because the executed at the necessary times & those that didn't, didn't.

Actually not. It's an almost 100% certainty ... especially if chicos is involved.

Yet another NHL season points leader loses in Round 1.

This time, in an added twist, the Lightning -- who had one of the best regular-season records ever -- got swept out of the first round.

NHL Playoffs: The true crapshoot.
