WEEK: Preseason | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | Bye | 12 | 13The Bottom 10 inspirational thoughts of the week: Welcome to the jungle
|ESPN.com's Bottom 10|
|1.||Washington||0-11||"Knockin' On Heaven's Door:" The Huskies are knock-knock-knockin' on the door to Bottom 10 immortality. With one more loss, they will complete a perfect winless season.|
|2.||SMU||1-10||"Use Your Illusion I:" If June Jones closes his eyes and tries real hard, maybe he can convince himself he's back in Hawaii soaking in the sun.|
|3.||North Texas||1-10||"Use Your Illusion II:" If Todd Dodge closes his eyes and tries real hard, maybe he can convince himself he's back at Southlake Carroll soaking in the run to another title.|
|4.||Western Kentucky||2-9||"You Ain't The First:" The Hilltoppers aren't the first independent to make the Bottom 10. Nor are they the last. Need proof? See below.|
|5.||Notre Dame||6-5||"November Rain:" It's been raining losses for the Irish in November. If their 1-3 record this month isn't bad enough, a shower of snowballs directed at them from the student section during the Syracuse loss made it worse.|
|6.||Iowa State||2-10||"Welcome To The Jungle:" We're not sure how the Cyclones have escaped the Bottom 10's attention this long. But those 10 straight losses make them a welcome addition.|
|7.||Tulane||2-9||"Breakdown:" Since a two-game winning streak in September, the Green Wave experienced a breakdown, losing seven straight games.|
|8.||Eastern Michigan||2-9||"Paradise City:" Not sure if Ypsilanti could be considered a paradise city or not, but the Eagles have struggled there and on the road.|
|9.||Miami (Ohio)||2-9||"There Was A Time:" The RedHawks used to be good. Remember when Ben Roethlisberger took them to the MAC title in 2003?|
|10.||Michigan||3-9||"Appetite For Destruction:" The Wolverines set some records only the Bottom 10 could love: most losses ever in a season, a fifth straight loss to Ohio State and the largest loss to the Buckeyes in 40 years.|
Waiting list: Idaho (2-10), Indiana (3-9), Kent State (3-8), New Mexico State (3-8), UAB (3-8), Utah State (2-9).
