I refuse to get my hopes up again. Been burned repeatedly for 15 years. When we are consistently competitive with the upper echelon for multiple seasons I’ll be willing to allow myself to hope again. Nothing against the current staff or players, but it’s folly to set myself up for further disappointment. CJH seems like a genuinely good dude, so I hope he is the captain that can bring the Titanic back to the surface. Again, I’m no longer foolish enough to hope for it. I’ll watch and enjoy any successes/progress without attaching any expectations for the future. Being a Vols fan is like being in a bad marriage at this point. I love’em. I’ll never leave ‘em, but I just want things to be better.
I wouldn’t necessarily be worried as long as BG is struggling offensively. You get a lead like that and it gives you options to try some different things, meaning you’re getting away from what put those points on the board but it’s a good, live game opportunity to see what you got. I would be happy to see it after what we’ve been through the past several years.
