Lower your expectations, unfortunately it’s not going to be fun.
Depends on the outlook. I'm excited to see some blue collar kids out there who really want to be at UT and who actually give a chit about the game and the program. I'm prepared to be outgunned from a talent perspective, but if I see kids out there really battling and making the big boy sweat a little, I'd consider that a successful season and fun. Laying the foundation is never pretty or exciting, but it is necessary nonetheless.

We've been laying the foundation for 20 years

13 years or 20 years does it really matter
Yes.

It absolutely does.

Especially to the 22 year old who just graduated from UT. He or she may not have seen great football while a student, but at least they can remember back to good seasons when they were just 8 or 10 years old.

Seven years is a long time in a human life. I mean, heck, some dude was stuck in Tibet that long, and they made a whole movie about it.

Truthfully, I am more excited about this coaching staff, at least we are not hearing the following:

- The butchering of the English language
- Carnival barker shouting slogans
- Football to WWII history comparisons
- How great USCw is and plastering USCw crap all over the football facility

It is refreshing to have a head coach that played the game at a very high level, was a successful player, coached within a successful program, and became a successful head coach. CJH has hired a very experienced defensive staff while bringing his offensive staff that understands and implements his offense, with this approach it appears that he will allow his coaches to coach.

I like what I've seen so far and I'm looking forward to Spring Practice, Fall Camp and how his philosophy translates to game day execution.
