Really?Â I don’t buy it…
I don’t buy that for a second.Â Specifically for this reason.Â Don’t you have to actually win at least one conference title to be hated?Â Seriously.Â I mean, nobody hates Utah State (except maybe Utah State fans).Â Yeah, Fresno goes out and plays and sometimes beats the big boys.Â That’s all well and good, but then they get back into conference play and fold like a lawn chair.Â Â They have not won a WAC title since 1999 (2 years prior to Boise State coming into the WAC).Â How can anyone hate Fresno, other than their being generally obnoxious and unlikeable people (which has nothing to do with football)?
I don’t even hate Fresno’s coach Pat Hill.Â He seems like a nice enough guy.Â Good coach.Â If I had to pick a coach I hate, that mantle is easily locked up by Hal Mumme.Â I really hate that guy.Â But again, New Mexico State isn’t near good enough to generate enough hate overall to even rank on the scale.
Not that I want to be hated, but I think the only choice for the “most hated in the WAC” title can only be Boise State.Â You’re telling me that a team with a 46-2 conference record since 2002 and 5 straight titles in that span isn’t the most hated?Â Really?Â Do you other teams enjoy the ass kickings or what?Â We could spend 20 minutes listing out the records and accomplishments of the Broncos without pause here.Â Not to mention the whole Fiesta Bowl thing, which most schools in the WAC could only DREAM about.
Tell me that nearly every team in the WAC hates Fresno more than Boise State and I’ll call you a liar.
