Defeat at home for Oxford in suddenly-meaningful competition

(Context is required to derive meaning, and if context changes, what once seemed meaningless can gain real meaning. The context of football can seem stable. A win earns you three points. A defeat leaves you with none. When what once seemed certain no longer seems so, perception can become confused as it attempts to adjust. But defeat always seems very real.)
