If you got a USA Today Wednesday (you know, the paper with all the pretty colors), you read about Coach Hill's recent pay cut. For those that don't follow college sports, what Fu-Manchu did is pretty rare. Yeah, he gets paid a lot of money when you compare his salary with other Fresno jobs (like, unpaid local blogger). But when you look at the rest of college football's coaches, it's well below average. It makes it a little harder to hate on the guy, even with the lack of WAC Championships.
Hey, the dude lived out of his van once and can't even afford nice pants for the USA Today photo shoot (above pic). Give him a break, Fresnans!
Coach Hill must be hella excited about the home schedule the Dogs have this season:
10/2 Cal Poly
10/13 New Mexico State
Wonder if Pat Hill was still having fun when he learned that Boise State is going to have their FieldTurf replaced for free when he's still stuck with his sorry lookin' grass. Side rant: Frankly we think the natural grass looks way better than any field turf could (blue or not), even if it doesn't hold up well. But for some reason, coaches really get boners for FieldTurf.
Humbly brought to you by The Fresnan it's Dorktown Podcast Episode 68. It's unsafe listening for work and small English speaking children.
If you're brave enough to listen, you can expect that hosts Mikey and Bells's mics will be too loud and the guests (Derek and Aaron) mics won't be working at all (there is a payoff for that if you can listen to the whole show). You can also expect three celeb guests to show up, and Mikey sounding like a dumbshit.
Or just use this player:
You know it's the off-season for Fresno State sports when stories about the defensive line... *yawn*... (sorry guys, gotta wake up here) when stories about the defensive line pop up.
Good news: Pat Hill's Fu-Manchu is already good-to-go for the 2008 season:

The Fresnan is a blog drunk on Fresno's sweet sweet booze.
We like posting about local music and random Fresno culture junk. We like Downtown, tri-tip, South of Shaw battles, tamales and remembering when there was a fig orchard at Herndon & Palm. We like to occasionally go to River Park but tell people we never go there.
