The Terrible Ten: NCAA Football Week 8

Dan BooneSenior Analyst IJune 10, 2016

The season slides by, a Bowden slips away, and the Terrible Ten continues to play.



1. Syracuse Orange (1-5)

The Orange isn't being squeezed; the Orange is rotten. It's amazing how far this program has fallen. It's more amazing Coach Greg Robinson and AD Daryl Gross are still employed. Syracuse is a sad, demoralized program that is dead in the water.


2. Rutgers Scarlet Knights (1-5)

Well the worm turned real quick and real bad for Rutgers. Does Coach Greg Schiano watch Joe Paterno limp along and wonder what living in Happy Valley is like?


3. The Washingtons: Huskies and Cougars (1-11)

The Washingtons will be washed clean of coaches shortly. How do the Cougars plus 42 1/2 points look vs. USC this week? Ugly.


4. San Diego State Aztecs (1-5)

It's all been downhill since the Week One Cal Poly Mustang whipping.


5. Idaho Vandals (1-5)

How did a football team in Idaho get named after an ancient barbaric East German tribe that conquered parts of North Africa and then viciously sacked Rome in 455? Just wondering...


6. Florida Atlantic Owls (1-5)

Owl Coach and football legend Howard Schnellenberger must think of Blanton Collier, Bear Bryant, George Allen, Don Shula, Joe Namath, Alabama and Miami National titles,the undefeated Miami Dolphins, the Baltimore Colts, Louisville, and Oklahoma and think what a long strange trip its been...

Or else, perhaps, he says what a helluva ride its been...


7. LA-Monroe Warhawks (1-5)

The home folks call them the Louie Jimmy Monroes. No more picking on the Sun Belted this week. That's means a pass for the North Texas Mean Green.


8. Tennessee Volunteers (2-4)

Coach Phil Fulmer looks eager to end this nightmare season and hit the trail. A National title ten years gone doesn't mean much anymore.


9. Michigan Wolverines  (2-4)

No Bowl for the Wolverines unless they upset Uncle Junior Joe Paterno's Nittany Lions at Penn State's homecoming. Joe has dropped nine in a row to Michigan. The heat's on Slick Rick Rodriguez.


10. Purdue Boilermakers (2-4)

The Purdue offense looks like it beat Coach Joe Tiller to retirement by about six weeks.
