With most teams now entering conference play, the cupcake bake-off has ended, for the most part. So now we'll actually see who is horrible, and who isn't. I'd also like to point out that Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson has a contract that runs through 2016. At over $2 million per, that's a hefty buyout considering you're still paying former basketball coach Paul Hewitt. Have fun with that. On to this week's Bottom 5.


1. UMass: Simply because I doubt the Minutemen could beat Arkansas on a neutral field. But I wouldn't be surprised if they did.

2. Arkansas: Remember when this was supposed to be a possible banner year for the Hawgs? Those dreams died the second Bobby Petrino's motorcycle went off the road. The Razorbacks suffered another humiliating defeat. For the second time this season, an opponent scored over 50 points. At least they didn't get shut out, right? I wouldn't plan on booking any bowl trips, Razorback fans. With four losses already, they finish the season against three teams currently in the top 20.

3. Idaho: Hope the game check from UNC was worth the cross-country flight and the 66-0 drubbing. The Vandals have lost eight in a row dating back to last season, and are 2-15 since the beginning of the 2011 season.

4. Everyone in the ACC not named Florida State: Congratulations ACC, you are now the new Big East. Seriously Georgia Tech?

5. Army: Come on Army of One, you lost to Stony Brook, 3-23!!!

Falling out of the Bottom 5:
Eastern Michigan: They had a bye. Congratulations for not losing!

Conference USA: You still have four teams without a win, but this week's conference suckitude goes to the ACC.
