I was where you were last year with the positive vibes. But in all honesty I just can’t do it anymore until I actually see results on the field. For me, this is an important year for this team. 

I feel like there is more optimism amongst people on this board than when CCS was here.

I think that is a given but as a whole between here and Twitter there is way more hope and optimism than in recent years.

I plucked the two posts above from the Conference realignment "Rumors" "tweets" "etc" thread.  Off topic as are many, but in a good way and enough for a separate thread.

We're about 40 days away from games and about a week from Fall practices.  How about  a pre Fall camp assessment on how we are feeling going into the season along with any discussion as to why we feel one way or the other, or why we thing the numbers are what they are. 

Instead of posting on the Realignment thread, I wanted to have some conversation and a poll here.  Your participation is requested.

For those falling in either category it could be interesting to hear the why.  For example, if you're pessimistic because we won't meet your expectations of a CFB championship, that would be good to know.  If you're optimism is based on chances for a two win season or just seeing progress, also good to know.

Some are intrinsically pessimistic or optimistic as well - about Bulls football, their lives, the weather...that's a given, but please help with this scientific effort to understand the Bulls fans psyche as we get near the season.

I think 6 wins is possible if things bounce our way. But if we are at 3/4 wins then I will be dissatisfied. Scott has some decent players it’s time him and his staff (with the new additions) to do their **** job and win us a respectable amount of games. I can’t believe I am at the point where 5 wins is respectable but that is where we are it.

So how did you add that little disclaimer at the top of the thread? ....... Not that I'm the kind that splits threads or anything.

Optimistic because I think we have some playmakers AND some depth for the first time since Strong inherited Willie’s roster.

I am optimistic because a full returning OL and it is year 3 for CJS and (most importantly) for once the transfer QB we got has already proven to be a winner unlike the Miami and Bama transfers of recent years who had never proven anything at their old schools.

For those in the "Neither" category is that mostly apathy from years of abuse?  Are you beaten down from previous seasons or are you waiting to see something that pushes you to one camp or the other?  Afraid to commit (again)?
