Will Fans Return To Fresno State Football?

A new coach and a new attitude are bringing a fresh look to Fresno State football, and there is renewed community interest heading into Saturday night's season opener against Weber State.

Fans are really looking forward to seeing the new Bulldogs.

First year head coach Tim DeRuyter says he has experienced it while talking with people up and down the Valley.

DeRuyter says his players feel it as well, and hope to erase the memory of last year's 4-8 record with their play on the field.

The Bulldogs will have new schemes on offense and defense under DeRuyter, who has taken over for Pat Hill, let go as head coach after 15 seasons.
