I have patience with the "seen this script before" crowd as I have too
Many of the newbies though get all butt hurt as though the guys did something personal to them. There is a huge part of me that wants to get excited about the potential for Omaha this year with this bunch. But like you, there is another part which says don't get your hopes too far up.
Regardless of the end result, I think everyone here needs to realize these are young men who sacrifice and give a great deal of time and effort to this thing just as the coaches do. Ultimately, they will be the ones experiencing the greatest joy or disappointment at the end of this journey. Several here act as though we are the ones putting in all the practice time and somehow the players just show up and let us down. Those are the "fans" that disgust me.
