Stop me if you've heard this one:
Highly ranked, undefeated Fresno welcomes talented team who is slightly underachieving during their first year in conference. Fresno loses, quarterback Carr is heartbroken.
Well NUGgies, it happened again. San Jose St. beat Fresno 62-52, derailing the Bulldogs' BCS ambitions 12 years after their dreams died on the same field at the hands of our Broncos. The Dogs gave up 450 passing yards in the first half! I guess little brother Derek will have to put up a new flag now.
There is one common thread to both these upsets: Gene Bleymaier was the AD of both of the winning teams.
Can we start a "Curse of Gene" to rub Fresno's noses in it yet?
