After improving their statistics and analysis, the Tevatron gets a narrower exclusion range for the Higgs boson mass Combined CDF and D0 Upper Limits on Standard Model Higgs-Boson Production with 2.1 - 5.4 fb-1 of Data I am unsure how Alain Connes feels now. I have difficulties to understand how improved statistics can ever decrease your sensibility. To be honest, this may cast doubt on the Tevatron credibility. It certainly turns the light towards CERN, with a better sensibility at lower mass range. On the other hand, Alain Connes' prediction relies on the "big desert" hypothesis. Generally speaking, if the Higgs (or whatever plays the Higgs) is at higher mass range (if we reject the big desert), its width will be larger and we're going to face the same problem as with the a0/sigma in QCD.
