Fan expectations are ridiculously unreasonable. This is a good thing.

The alternative is complacency and anyone as successful and driven as you are knows where that leads.

: close to 1/10 of what Holtmann has accomplished. Although I sure wish I had been on a Super Bowl winner and would gladly give up the other titles for one of those. But, yes, I get what you are saying. Fans are crazy and have sky high, unrealistic expectations. It can be way out of whack. But, maybe Holtmann or Day works a little less hard if those fan expectations were not there driving them to do more. Maybe Smith compromises on his hiring if the alumni and fans didn't drive success so hard. And, no one puts a gun to their head to take the job. Holtmann understands the expectations, realistic or not, at OSU. He could have stayed at Gardner Webb if he didn't want the challenge and the expectations that come with OSU. Hell, if he ever gets the UK job, OSU will be a spring stroll down the Champs-Elysees. And still, fans be crazy in their expectations.
