Has anyone heard of a self fufilling prophecy? That is what that type of thought can do. I sure hope the team expects to go 8-4.
Right... just like the 8 - 4 crowd is positioning themselves for the "I love my Vols and will bet for them anyday of the week! You obviously don't bleed Orange like I do b/c you said they would go 5-7... and even though that turned out to be true I proved my loyalty b/c I believed in them more! Every heard of a self-fulfilling prophecy? You were the reason they went 5-7... even though you correctly predicted it!" argument.
