ESPN.com

The Bottom 10's inspirational thought of the week:

"If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?" -- Vince Lombardi

ESPN.com's Bottom 10
Team Record Comments
1. Arkansas State 0-2 On a positive note, the scoring defense improved to 48 per game.
2. Rutgers 0-1 Home loss to I-AA Villanova makes SUNJ look like grunge.
3. Baylor 0-1 Hold on ... I think Cal just scored again.
4. Buffalo 0-1 The Bulls, who lost to I-AA Lehigh, travel to Rutgers for Barf Bowl.
5. Northwestern 0-1 Suddenly, they're back to being the Mildcats
6. Vanderbilt 0-1 How's that no cussing rule working out after 45-3 trip to the woodshed?
7. UL-U Pick'em 0-2 What's worse: a trip to Manhattan, Kan, or staying in Lafayette?
8. Kansas 0-1 Maybe the lights will go out in Vegas again.
9. Idaho 0-1 The Boise game was a warm-up for Washington State and Oregon.
10. Wyoming 0-1 How about giving us $2.35 million to take you off the Bottom 10?

Waiting list: Eastern Michigan, Ohio, Rice, SMU, Tulane and Tulsa.

ESPN.com users had plenty to say about the second Bottom 10 ranking of the season.
