After much deliberation and following Fresno State extending Pat Hill' contract another three years; Fresno State's poor performance in the least prestigious of the post season bowls and Boise State's superb showing against #4 TCU I have decided to defect as a Fresno State fan and join the Boise Nation!
I boycotted Fresno State's football last year due to my disenchantment with Pat Hill and his inability to win the WAC and lead the Bulldogs to the next level. I usually travel to Fresno for at least one home game and this was the first year since I graduated that I failed to accomplish to see a home game.
Coach Chris Petersen, his coaching staff, the Bronco football team and the school have continued to build upon the foundation that was started by Chris Petersen as Offensive Coordinator for Coach Dan Hawkins. Coach Petersen's 49-4 record in only his fourth season at Boise State is phenomenal.
Boise State was smart to offer a five-year deal to a coach who has made Boise State a BCS team, not a BCS breaker. Boise State is no longer a stepping stone to another coaching job its now a destination. I'm proud to say I am a member of Bronco Nation!
