After watching some of opening weekends action, I feel compelled to do a "Bottom 5" list. Everyone wants to do a Top 20, or something to that affect. But hey, even the worst teams need some love!1. Pitt
- They lost to FCS foe Youngstown State at home, 17-31. At home. Nice job, Big East, or ACC.2. Penn State
- They lose to Ohio. Not Ohio State, but the Ohio Bobcats. As contributing writer, Andy, said after the game, haven't they [Penn State] suffered enough? He was, of course, referring to the NCAA sanctions. The NCAA has banned Andy from any further hyperbole, because, they're the NCAA and they can do whatever they want.3. Washington State
- The Mike Leach error, I mean, era, has not started off well. For being an offensive guru, the Cougars amassed only 224 yards, was 5-15 on 3rd down conversions, and only scored two field goals. We didn't expect much from WSU this year, but... ya know, effort, that would have been a plus.4. Maryland
- Yes, they in fact, did win. 7-6 over the juggernaut known as William and Mary. It took until right under the 10:00 mark for the Terps to score. With all the transfers out of the program over the last year, it's going to be a long season in College Park.5. C-USA
- The entire conference is terrible. As a whole, the conference went 2-10 this weekend, beating only Akron and App State. Houston, that team that is supposed to bring respectability back to the Big East next year, lost to Texas State, 30-13. UAB, not very good to start with, lost to Sunbelt foe Troy. Memphis lost to Ohio Valley Conference team UT-Martin. West Virginia put up 69 on Marshall. Unfortunately for C-USA, they still have to have a conference champ, and that conference champ will get killed by some middling team from the SEC in December.On the cusp: Navy
- You don't go to Ireland and lose by 40.
