I'm going 12 but it's not "Pruitt fever". This season we find out what we've got and what we'll be looking forward to for years to come.

Don't think we'll see the 2nd year jump to the point some believe because the lines take longer to fix than the programs people comparing to for year 2. But we'll see enough to know if we have a FB coach or not.

I agree. My excitement level is through the roof but it ain't Pruitt Fever Lulz. I can't answer or say anything for anyone except me, but Im confident that Ill know how I feel about this staff and obviously Pruitt by the end of this season. A big part of my excitement is the anticipation of just finding out.

Many don't like to think or talk about it, but I do. I don't expect or count on it, but what if we fought like the 3rd monkey trying to get on Noah's Ark all season long and actually won 8 or 9 and everyone was saying "yea, I think we got us a good'un" ?

What if BeardedVol started a thread.. "I ain't never been this excited, with my pants on" after regular season? Okay, That's going a little too far, but you know what I mean.

Yep, 10+.

**Don't want to leave everyone out.

What if we loose all 12? Than what?

This was hard to cast a vote for... I just don’t know. 2020 will really tell me where we are but a few key wins will swing us hard in the right direction this year. I believe big losses won’t affect us quite as negatively as much as a couple big wins affects us positively.

Losing to a low tier school will get over shadowed by a big win over Florida.

Could say this about 1000 different ways, but at the end of the day, THIS is what it's going to take to over achieve this year and hit 8-9 wins. I mean, eventually, logic says we're going to win more than expected, instead of the opposite, so, now's about as good of a time as any to get the Vol train back on track.

Ditto. You saved me a lot of typing. I'm excited every year.

I said 8 just because, come on, its almost football time. I’m always excited for the season to start, but after the positive momentum with recruits, I’m ready for fall camp to start. I’d say that if we have a decent (6-8 win) season, my excitement level for next year would be a 10.

Ditto. Also, it's time for us to cycle up. History's proven we always come back; might as well start with this year.

Me until UT gets some DB's good enough to beat Vandy...or was when UT beats Vandy, UT will get good DB's? I can't remember...I love the off-season but hate the off-season.
