A new particle has certainly been found and in the unlikely event it is not
the Higgs the response of most physicists would not be "oh, no" but pure
delight because then it is something unexpected and even more exotic than
the Higgs helping us find new knowledge. If 15 years from now the LHC finds
the Higgs and nothing else then they would say "oh,no" because it would
have only found what was expected to find, the discovery that the Higgs did
not exist would be much more exciting.
