Lets get one thing clear. This is something bugs me a lot. We ARE underdogs. I hate how the fans and some of the players try to argue this fact. Last time in WC07, Bashar was banging his head around, saying "we are not minnows, we not minnows". What are we then? There is nothing wrong with being an underdog. There has been some great underdog stories in sports, and we will be one of them.
Lets not try and fight that. It's only going to hurt us. Enjoy the tag and move forward. The tag will go away on it's own, when the time comes.
