I wouldn't be surprised if Feathers is used during the Wisconsin game. Fresno State must come out with a game plan, a trick game plan if they expect a "W". I believe that Feather should play in certain situations, due to the fact that he is more mobile than Brandstater and is a threat on the run in terms of passing. Yes, that means this boy can run and pass with accuracy, not known by many past or present bulldog quarterbacks. I say, give him a special set coach Hill and let him electrify the crowd, I bet Wisconsin won't even see it coming.

Many people say that Wisconsin will run right over us, many people say that we can't even win our own conference title, many people say that before we can BUST the BCS, we have to win the WAC and that hasn't been done since '99. Well, I'll say one thing, the last time these two teams played, Fresno was an underdog then too. I believe that every time Fresno is an underdog going into a game, they'll find a way to keep it close and win!

The media saids that Wisconsin and P.J. Hill will take it to the Bulldogs, well, my friends Fresno State is not Akron. Wisconsin let Akron score 17 points against them, Fresno will offensively score more than 17 points since it will be at Bulldog Stadium. I believe that Fresno will win by the score of 35-28. If Wisconsin was so good, why didn't they snuff out Akron 38-0. Something just doesn't seem right about Wisconsin and all the talk. Wisconsin will regret coming to Bulldog Stadium, mark my words, they will regret it.

To all Wisconsin Badger fans, you should have not scheduled to play Fresno State in a season that they are likely to BUST the BCS. You are ranked no.11th in the country according to the coaches poll, well get ready, because no. 21 Fresno State is going to knock you so far back people will forget who the Badgers are.....you see, I'm already forgetting you guys exist!

Wisconsin sucks,

Go Bulldogs!

No need to criticize Wisconsin. They are a good team. Lets be Bulldog fans, and not delusional. Fresno State will have to play very well in order to stop Wisconsin. The Bulldog defense will need to hold Wisconsin to under 3 rushing touchdowns which would in turn cause Wisconsin to pass the ball...not the Badger's strong suit. As far as what Fresno State has failed to achieve, mainly winning a WAC title in the last 10 years, it does not take a genius to figure out why. We focus all of our energy into big men who can make big plays, but that is not how a team is successful in the WAC. The WAC is generally smaller and thus more agile than the big conferences that Pat Hill designs his team to compete in. Pat Hill played center at Riverside College (S---hole), and he has a center's mentality. If we want to be successful both in the WAC and against BCS schools, we need to find a coach who can balance his team's size and speed. Not just go after big boys who eat at BJ's country junction 8 times a week. We also need a recruiting program that does not favor athletes from areas within 100 mile radius of the school's vicinity. Local support is awesome and there is some great local talent on the team: Feathers, Pascoe, Jefferson...but more importantly, best players should play and best players should get heavily recruited. Having 90% of your players come from a population of just 3 million, when our state alone is 37 million, can be called madness. Plus it creates an inherent disadvantage for our many teams, both culturally and competitively. Ok, I said it...but now I say go Bulldogs and I sincerely hope that we trounce the Badgers.

Now that Fresno lost, it doesn't matter. Fresno is still in the top #25 and if Wisconsin plays the way that they do the rest of the season, they'll lose without a doubt. In fact, any team can beat them. WE should have! If it wasn't for the 3 missed field goals we would have won. Wisconsin, was extremely lucky. We beat you fools in camp Randall in 2001 32-20, you even the score here in Fresno by beating us 23-21 on a last minute field goal, and now this...13-10, c'mon, you count this as a victory. You got out of Fresno luckily with you hides still intact.

Fresno will take it's frustration out on Toledo. Believe me, this Fresno defense is real nasty. Look at all the good things that they did in that game. Don't look at the final score. Wisconsin was coming in with a 44pt. average per game, and we only allowed them 13....WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT TELL YOU. Wisconsin no.#8th in the country, what a load of shit! Pardon my French, Fresno being #25, is still a better team. I guarantee, if Fresno would have won, Wisconsin would have been knocked out of the top #25 completely, but after a loss to a no.#10 ranked team we're still hanging around. Don't give up on us yet! I bet Fresno will finish in the top 15 if not better. A win over Toledo and UCLA should open up some eyes.

Shit, I'm not crazy, if you were a real bulldog fan you'd understand. I hate people that talk trash about Fresno State and Pat Hill. I mean, Hill has done some really good things for the school. We don't have to win a WAC title to see that....San Jose, if you don't like us, your against us. And saying " I sincerely hope that Fresno trounces the Badgers is a load of crap!" You much like everyone else wanted Fresno to lose, you talk about Hill's mentality as coach being that of a "centers" mentality, what about yours!
