Wednesday Warmup: Were the expectations unreasonable?

The Fresno State football season opener will be looked back upon as another missed opportunity on a national stage, and if the Bulldogs still manage to reach the unreasonably high expectations bestowed on them before the season, the scrutiny for the loss by the fans will be multiplied tenfold.

To the behest of many, the Bulldogs were not to go into the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and handily beat a downtrodden USC Trojan team on a national stage, prevailing while all eyes watched on ESPN in primetime and proving that Fresno State is the premier college football team in California.
