THE BOTTOM 10 OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL - WEEK THREE
This is the Top 10 list YOU NEVER WANT TO BE ON! It's the BEST OF THE WORST in College Football!
It's a weekly tradition for me to rank the 10 worst college football teams in the country and also take a look at some of those teams that are failing and underachieving.
This week it got MUCH worse for some of those teams situated in the Bottom 10. (Again, previous ranking is in parenthesis...)
There is always a THEME to the Bottom 10, and this week it is MICHAEL JACKSON SONGS! Enjoy, everyone!
10(NR). KANSAS STATE (1-1)
"Beat It": Oh Kansas State, you were on such a great high after knocking off the mighty Minutemen of UMass that you stooped to a new low losing to the RAGIN' CAJUNS OF LOUISIANA-LAFAYETTE? No disrespect to them, but they really are looking forward to baseball season more than football.
I know Bill Snyder is coaching now, but he's got a long way to go to rebuild this team.
9(NR). TULANE (0-2)
“Bad”: They’ve given up 91 points and scored just 16. Pretty sure that’s an accurate definition of BAD.
Next week could be a big chance for the Green Wave to get a W. They host FCS McNeese State in two weeks, but the problem is the Cowboys just won at Appalachian State—a pretty darn good team last time I checked.
If Tulane loses that one in two weeks, look for them to shoot down the bottom 10.
8(NR). COLORADO (0-2)
“One More Chance”: Colorado will get that one more chance this week at home against Wyoming, after getting blown out by Toledo and losing to Colorado State a week before.
What some people might not know is this team was a trendy pick by some Big 12 media personnel to have a shot at the Big 12 North title!
How’s that looking now?
Another question to ask: How long till Dan Hawkins gets run out of Boulder with losses to their rival Colorado State followed by a loss to a MAC school?
7(10). WASHINGTON STATE (0-2)
“They Don’t Care About Us”: Certainly no one cares about this team in the Pac-10 after another dreadful loss, this time at home against of all teams HAWAII.
Yet they still have a chance to register their first win of the season next week against a former staple in the Bottom 10 last year, SMU.
Wazzu needs to take advantage of this chance to get themselves out of the cellar and get a WIN!
6(NR). RICE (0-2)
“Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough”: That’s right, Rice fans! Don’t stop losing until you get enough of it! You lost to Texas Tech by 45, which was expected. But the first week of the season losing to an awful UAB by 20 points...I mean, come on!
It’s not like you’ve had enough of it already! Hey, guess what? You get to play Oklahoma State next week! Oh goody!
I guess that’s what you get for having a food as the name for your school. Or an owl as your mascot. This team was good just a few years ago with Jarrett Dillard, but now it's back to the customary spot in the Bottom 10.
5(5). VIRGINIA (0-2)
“Leave Me Alone”: Oh it gets worse for UVA.
After last week's embarrassing defeat to of all teams WILLIAM & MARY, without Lou Holtz coaching this week they once again couldn't protect their home turf.
A blowout loss to TCU puts the Hoos in great position to fall to 0-4 with two road trips to Hattiesburg and Chapel Hill coming up. Oct. 10th against IU could be their only chance for a win this year.
How embarrassing would that be for the Hoosiers?
4(4). EASTERN MICHIGAN (0-2)
“Cry”: They were OH-SO-CLOSE to a huge upset and Ron English's first win in Evanston against Northwestern.
With a furious comeback in the second half, EMU had it tied with six seconds left until Wildcat kicker Stefan Demos stepped up and booted a 49-yard field goal through the uprights and broke the hearts of Eagles fans everywhere.
Oh yeah, if you didn't know before, the Eagles lost to Army a week before. At home.
3(3). WESTERN KENTUCKY (0-2)
“Wanna Be Startin Somethin”: It was a great scene in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It was one of the first times ever WKU had hosted a big opponent on their homefield.
They brought out the all-black jerseys for the first time ever and blacked out the crowd. Well, they hung with USF for three quarters until the Bulls turned it on in the end.
They might be "starting something" there in WKU. For that splendid performance, they stay halted at No. 3 in the bottom 10. They do have Central Arkansas next week. FIRST WIN POSSIBLY!?!?!
2(7). MIAMI (OH) (0-2)
“You Are Not Alone”: There are many other teams that are 0-2 in this bottom 10 as well, but they haven’t done it in the style that Miami (OH) has.
The Redhawks have scored a grand total of ZERO POINTS in their first two games. That’s right, opponents are outscoring Miami (OH) 90-0 in two games.
What's even better is their leading rusher Andre Bratton has tallied a WHOPPING 37 yards on the ground in two games! That's when you know you've got a great ball club on your hands!
Maybe they can get on their board against Western Michigan this week. I think that would be a win in itself for the Redhawks.
1(1). BALL STATE (0-2)
“You Can’t Win”: Can you believe that this team won 12 games last season and was at one time a Top 25 ranked team? Oh how the mighty have fallen in Muncie, Indiana.
BSU has now faced the former No. 1 team in the Bottom 10 and an FCS school and lost to them both (oh yeah, not to mention they were at home for both of those contests).
For those stellar performances, Ball State gets to hold the honor of being the Best of the Worst in College Football for Week Three!
