FAU on the waiting list for the Bottom 10

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?page=bottom10090909

Despite how poorly we played, I still don't agree with being on the waiting list.  The Bottom 10 is usually reserved for losses to bad teams…we lost to a top 25 Big 12 team (as we were expected to) and we get put on the waiting list?  If we had beaten Nebraska they would have put them on the list for sure, yet we lose to them and we get close?  I can't tell if this is maybe a compliment to how highly they (ESPN) hold us, and how much we let them down on Saturday.

Personally I think Troy being upset was a bigger deal, and should have put them on the waiting list, not us.

I think that is exactly what it is…

I agree with this….Troy was supposed to win that game and they were upset…there arent even on the waiting list…in my opinion every team who is 0-1 should be on the waiting list no matter how impressive there performance was. The bottom 10 is all about the teams with the most lossses(minus the 5 spot sometimes) and after the first week..thats half the field of teams.

That and a combination of the national loss of respect for NU program over the past 5 seasons or so….they dont think Nebrasksa should be able to beat a good football team 49-3.  If it were the same score to Texas…wouldn't have been mentioned.

"Don't Let Me Down": After they put up only seven points and 83 total yards against the Vols, the Bottom 10 is confident the Hilltoppers won't let us down this season.

Wow…83 total yards?

I read that as Tennessee being much improved from last year moreso than WKU being that bad. I still think WKU will have some SBC wins this year.

GO OWLS!!!
