Will Pat Hill get the boot?

Bumped to the front page.

I've been a bit of a lurker here.  This is the only place I could find to talk about this, so here we go.

Fresno State is 3-5.  The optimism they began the year with due to former standout David Carr's younger brother Derek Carr beginning his career there has now faded.  Derek himself has done well for a sophomore, with 1980 passing yards and 15 TD passes in 8 games for a rating of 135.4.  However, there is a growing sense that Fresno State is, if not going backwards, then stuck in the same place, having watched Boise State pass it by after that fateful 2001 game. Hill has only had 2 losing seasons in his time there.

I have heard that Hill refuses to recruit from nearby JC's that produce great players, preferring to grab high school players.  One example of this is Hawaii's QB Bryant Moniz, who was a Fresno City player.

With Fresno State's move to the Mountain West/C-USA product coming next year, the schedule will only get tougher.

Personally, I'm on the fence.  The Bulldogs' athletic program is strapped for cash, and buying off Hill won't help.  However, with all the talent they have, there is really no excuse for some of the poor outings they've had this season, most notably Ole Miss and almost losing at home to FCS North Dakota.  As head coach, most of the blame goes to Hill.

EDIT:Fresno State is laying an egg against Louisiana Tech at home.  Ouch.  The calls for Hill's head will only increase.
