Fresno State is a barely above .500 Football Program

Recommended Posts

from 2010-2019, the Bulldogs went 68-62, netting a .523 winning percentage (thank you r/cfb).

I mean, that's fine for a middling program, but dog fans have been telling us how great they are for YEARS, and I just don't see it.

Their typical MO is to have a really nice year or two, then absolutely TANK, losing to their primary Rival SJSU, who is without question the Conference pariah. Their fans are so delusional they buy themselves championship rings and act like they are on the team.

Honestly, if anyone fits the bill of the typical AAC program, it's Fresno State, no doubt about it. A lot of big talk, a few flash in the pan seasons, then right back to the mean; average at best.

I say we drop this Boise State to the AAC garbage and start figuring out how to get the Bulldogs to that Conference where they will fit in a little better. 

For reference, Fresno is right between Troy and Memphis for winning percentage in the last decade. Maybe they partner up with Troy and see about getting in?

Idea — let’s boot Fresno out so they can join the AAC as a football only with oly sports in the WAC. Then we can cancel Boise’s term sheet but then compensate them with all the tv and travel subs Fresno would have received over the next 20 years. Everyone wins, get Hair on the phone!!!!

Fresno fb lives on the extremes. It's a boom or bust cycle for them. They rarely perform to their mean.

I think barely above average over 10 years truly is the mean.

Yes, having a head coach who nearly died on the sideline will do that to your season.

This is the type of bold, forward thinking, and out of the box angle that the MWC has been needing for many years.

I officially nominate BSUTOP25 for MWC commissioner.

Over the ten year cycle, yes. Four seasons with 42 wins and 6 seasons with 26 wins indicates a boom and bust cycle. If you played to the avg or mean you would have had a whole mess of 5 to 7 win seasons.

I agree with Spaztecs on this one.

Fresno is clearly a middling, average, G5 program that would be much better suited to the AAC,

Yeah it would be interesting to see the average and standard deviation.   Can you calculate that with your Boise Education? :BananaComputer:

I could but I think the burden of outlining Fresno’s pitiful performance should fall on a Bulldog poster.

news flash, there is not one other school (besides Boise) that is currently a member of either the MWC or ACC conference that has a better all time winning percentage than Fresno and that includes BYU. There is also not one other school in either the MWC or ACC that has as many conference championships as Fresno with (28).

Cool.  We are talking about the last decade.  Congrats on the Cali buss league titles though.
