past 2 years, but the 2005 season and the first two games of 07 (which sold me on the deadliness of the well-executed spread forever) have helped me deal with losing and appreciate success much more.
Also, becoming more well-informed, mainly due to this site, has given me a deeper understanding of the program and its structure/foundation/inner workings. For instance, ask a casual September to November fan who only knows the names of the offensive skill players and wants a new coach if they understand the state of the roster when RR took over and how much its re-stocking and progression is correlated with our on-field success. Ask them if they understand the importance of recruiting Florida (constantly growing young population, highest number of NFL players per-capita, etc.), and why the spread is not dead but typically makes up the top 10-15 offenses in the nation year in and year out. People who get their information from MLive, the Freep, and 97.1 only get a cursory glimpse at the surface and really just don't grasp the underlying causes and effects that result in winning and losing.
