BTW, nice user name. May say it all. No, I don't want to be a snowflake and have or expect everything should be mine with no effort. Hard to be thankful or appreciative if no skin in the game .So the majority would prefer to lose 4 or 5 games every season and never have the chance to meet Georgia and Alabama in the playoffs, because it would hurt your SEC pride? The deck is stacked against the Vols in the SEC and it is not going to get any easier anytime real soon.
The game is changing and priorities will be shifting next season. It is going to be playoffs or bust.
Do none of you look for the easiest path to obtain what you want in real life?
