Dear readers, I am humbled and honored to be able to share the following news with you. You see, it's a historic week for the Bottom This is something I knew could happen eventually, but the chances seemed so remote that I never thought it would happen.
The last few weeks have been filled with controversy over who should be ranked at the top of the BCS Standings, but we seem to be forgetting the other end—the bottom of the barrel. I think it's about time we show the bottom 10 teams a little bit of love. After a loss in the Apple Cup against longtime rival Washington Statethe Huskies will close out their season with another probable loss at Cal.

ESPN longtime college football scribe Ryan McGee has brought back his weekly misery index this season, entitled the 'Bottom 10'to pile on the nation's worst performances. Not all of these programs are bottom-feeders in their respective leagues with dead-in-the-water coaching staffs like you might expect. Some simply capsized under expectations and need to find answers, quickly.
The Bottom 25 is quickly running out of Power Five teams. They're currently at No. Then there was Arkansas picking up its second win against Tulsa in last week's Bottom 25 Game of the Century of the Week.
One of the running gags of the Bottom 10 is the "highly coveted Number 5 spot". This spot is typically reserved for "the top BCS blunder of the week" — a normally strong football team that found itself on the wrong end of an upset the prior week; an example would be the Bottom 10 of September 7,which featured Oregon State at the 5 ranking after its upset loss to Sacramento Statea Division I FCS program that had previously never beaten an FBS team in its history. The Bottom 10 also features the 'Pillow Fight of the Week', which is usually a matchup between fellow Bottom 10 teams.

We're rascals, scoundrels, villains and knaves Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho We're devils and black sheep The upcoming Tennessee-West Virginia game be damned, they were dressed head-to-toe in purple and gold East Carolina Pirates gear.
It was a dark and stormy night, and the members of the Bottom 10 Selection Committee were scheduled to gather at our customary spot, the DFW Hacienda Courts, located 1 mile and tens of millions of dollars down the road from the swanky Gaylord Texan, where the College Football Playoff people have their meetings. It's gonna be a long night for the Bottom10 Selection Committee. Final standings released tomorrow.
Come on, baby, give it all you've got Get into the power of the plot You know we'll only get it if we try Give me your attention for a while.

With all the endless college football polls out there, one major poll is missing: The Bottom Ten. We hate to pick on student-athletes, but with all the agent scandals surfacing at major schools, the "kids" are no longer safe from criticism. These ten teams have earned a Bottom Ten ranking. They are train wrecks in search of the next derailing.
