Peta Heal’s Quote Goes Viral: The World of College Football Reacts


As at the beginning of every college football season, there were several David and Goliath matches in the first couple of weeks of 2022.

Before the second week of the college football season begins, an old quote by former Fresno State head coach Pat Hill goes viral.

Oregon football insider John Canzano said he once asked Hill why he had scheduled so many games against the nation’s top programs.

His answer was legendary.

“What are they going to do, eat you?” he asked.

The world of college football reacted to this attitude on Twitter.

“Dude, I miss these Pat Hill State teams in Fresno,” one fan wrote.

“Fresno State was one of the best programs “for everyone, anywhere, anytime” and earned a damn good reputation as a result. More teams need to do this,” said another.

“You can’t run with dogs if you pee with puppies,” another added.

Hill, as the head coach of Fresno State from 1997 to 2011, compiled an overall record of 112-80, including 11 bowling matches.

His best season with the Bulldogs came when he led the program to an 11-3 record in 2001. In this career-best campaign, there was a major embarrassing victory over number 23 Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium. On the eve of the game, his team knocked out the Oregon State Beavers, who took 10th place.

This year, the Frenso State team adheres to the same position, having met with the 10th number of USC in an away match on September 17.
