Here's how this works: if you are playing for a national championship, and someone is better than you, then that other team will likely beat you.

That's the way of the sporting world. We have rules about eligibility and what type of competition you're in, sure, but this sport has far, far too many examples of "we lost but ..." excuse-mongering.
