Every coach has this same honeymoon period, it seems like. Then you'll have a "just missed" season where it looks like we're headed in the right direction, if only we had more talented players...or a mirage of a season where there will be a playoff waxing after an improbable win streak.We will see...
But alot of people are rewriting history here. When Gase came in, these same Hope's and dreams were expressed ad nauseam.
As I have said for a better part of a decade, fix the trenches and build your foundation/identity. The hope is there for the identity part, let's see if we can get some consistent growth on this team we have lacked for that decade.
After about 2-3 years of mediocrity, everyone will turn on each other, and debate with each other who the biggest hater of the front office is...or will talk about how they were the first one to say that the front office and coaching staff sucked, if just only anyone had listened.
Nicknames and memes will be made, the staff will become a staph, and a bizarre mix of apathy and anger will take over, as if the anger will be able to change the direction of a sports team...
Eventually, everyone will be sacked, and a new group will take their place, come in, talk the big talk, and stoke a ton of excitement in the fan base...the cycle will repeat itself...
It's happened with everyone I can remember after Wannstedt without fail.
