    Not remotely. Other than avoiding injuries and such, I am not interested whatsoever. There. I said it. That goes for the spring game as well.

    What about y'all? Are you joining in the collective two-week orange and white orgasm right now? Or maybe somewhere in between.

    Not a true fan imo. Yes, I'm gonna enjoy spring practice. Not a full on Orange orgasm though, just gettin a semi.

    I get suckered in every year. From Spring game onward I get into full homer mode until the third week of September. Then I come back down to earth.

    Just go back to last year and re-read the articles about who is really looking a BEASTUD from off-season workouts and who is coming with a totally renewed mental approach...bla bla bla. Or the year before. Or the year before.

    The O&W game is a good excuse to come back to Knoxville for a weekend for me. I don't pay too much attention to spring practice because of guys like David Yancey, Bill Grimes, Jarrod Parrish, Quintin Hancock and Toney Williams.

    I don't get too amped up about the season until a week before the games start.

    what i love is the volnation assholes praise these guys and then when they screw up on the fist scrimmage, they turn faster than a democrate caught in a lie and demand these guys never see the field again. it's the same thing every year. God forbid the spring game is not good, those morons will go crazy.

    Lost interest after I went up to see the Clawfense and the G-gun in the spring game, then had to sit through the 2008 season.

    If the offense sucks, it just means coach Sunseri is turning the program around, vfl, gbo! If the D can't get a stop, just means we have the most unstoppable offense in the by God USofA, by damn, gbo, vfl!

    I kinda like to hear about how guys coming back from injury are doing and how some things might be shaping up, and I thought it was moderately interesting in years with coaching changes. Other than that, I agree about avoiding new injuries, and the O&W game is a complete bore.

    The over reactions after Bray's performance last year were all time.

    It was hilarious. It was pretty obvious he didn't give a shit about being out there in 50 degree weather, in the rain, throwing to a bunch of walk-ons

    O and W game is fun. I've always liked it. No pressure, normally beautiful weather, and lots of daddies and kids getting to take in the Vols in a harmless way. Win win, win imo.

    That is one thing I like about it, especially now since I have a little one too. He'll make his Neyland debut at 4 months

    That's cool. I'm holding off for the time being (I just need a break from my little ones to be honest) but that is certainly the best way to have a safe, enjoyable visit without any major hassles.

    Full-on orange orgasm, with white finish. I drink the orange kool aid, but will not swallow this time around.

    One of these Springs will be the precursor to a turn-around. My question is, will it actually look any different from these other wet dream Springs?

    Yes, there won't be talk of attitudes improving or player X you've never heard of getting better. It will look like an NFL farm team on the field and they won't have to talk about how good they hope to be.
