I posted this before in a thread, but I wanted to give a chance for it to reach a broader audience.
It is all about a change of perception. In this world perception is reality. The teenagers of today have never seen Tennessee play in a major bowl game. Do not remember out national title, and outside of Peyton Manning do not know of our former players. We have to change perception in order to change direction. What we all know is true doesn't resonate with the kids of today. Winning some games, and gaining some momentum will help us change perception. Our reality is not the reality of the kids. Preception is reality. Go Vols
Would love to get everyone's take on how we can create a change of preception.
One way out...work like heck, develop average players into super players and win games. Marketing ain't gunna help. We have to do it the Smith and Barney way....earn it.
It is a large problem that we currently have. Winning seems to be the only solution.
I'd rather not type it out again so I'll keep it simple. Just win baby, and win more than the experts think you should.
I can attest to what you said! I'm one of those "kids" but my blood runs orange!
"Great...UT getting another stellar player.
Face meet wall..."
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
Its not a stupid question until you ask it.
