The Bottom 10 inspirational thought of the week:

"I gotta feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night


A feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night."


"I Gotta Feeling," The Black Eyed Peas

There haven't been many good nights for the Bottom 10 this season, but there have been plenty of black eyes to go around.

And it certainly wasn't a good weekend for FBS teams that have names beginning with the letter "I."

Indiana gave up 83 points to Wisconsin. Idaho lost to Boise State by 38. Illinois lost to Minnesota, which had lost nine games in a row. Iowa State lost to Colorado, which hadn't won a Big 12 game this season. And Iowa lost to Northwestern on a last-minute touchdown pass.

There might not be an "I" in team, but there's plenty of "I" in the Bottom 10 this week.

Surprisingly, you won't find Bottom 10 staples Washington State or Western Kentucky on the list. We give credit when credit is due, and the Cougars and Hilltoppers earned their one-week reprieves. Western Kentucky defeated Arkansas State 36-35 in overtime, scoring the winning points on Derrius Brooks' two-point conversion run on the game's final play. It was the Hilltoppers' second victory in their past four games, after they lost 26 in a row.

The Cougars routed Oregon State 31-14 on the road, ending a 16-game losing streak against Pac-10 foes and beating an FBS opponent for the first time this season.

It was a good, good night, even in Pullman, Wash.

With apologies to will.i.am and Steve Harvey, here's this week's Bottom 10:
