KvanCetre i really really hope you are reading this because you just proved my point that people on here aren't real sport fans. With all your hoping for NIU to win and Bowling Green to lose, one would assume you stay current on the events that relate. Well sir, Bowling Green did lose, BADLY, last night. and to Miami of Ohio. I guess it's really not important in the grand scheme of things, but if you are going to sound passionate about a team, try to fake it a little better.

I was just about to mention something about how much the Princeton football team sucks ;) Along with most of the other Ivy league teams.

At least you Ivy leaguers have lacrosse and crew :) Two thrilling sports

what?!
I definatly thought my school would make the bottom ten, and not some waiting list...Middle Tennessee State University works very hard at being a horrible football team...give them the respect they deserve ESPN!!!
 
2003-11-05 11:44:20 AM
That's retarded...How is Duke only on their twice? They're only the secondest worst team ever! Only team worse than them would probably be Buffalo.

Any list that doesn't include North Carolina(1-8), Notre Dame (2-6), Penn State (2-7), Temple (1-7), UTEP (2-7) and Vanderbilt (1-8) shouldn't be taken seriously. Notre Dame and Penn State used to be teams that would always contend for the national championship. Now, we're seeing both team sucking real bad. Rutgers and Temple need to taken out of the Big East Football conference because they have shown they're not ready to compete with anyone on the Division 1-A level. In the ACC, it's all Florida State. Maryland, NC State and Virginia have all fallen short of expectations. Clemson having a terrible year. In the Big 12, The Northern Division is up graps, With Missouri the front runner. Nebraska may have a chance to win it, but that could lead to the showdown between them and the unstoppable Oklahoma Sooners in the big 12 title game.

Actually, Duke is losing competitively this year, as opposed to previous seasons. They gave both NC State and Tennessee a run for their money.
 
2003-11-05 11:58:27 AM
Ivy League is Division 1-AA.

This is a list of the worst Division 1-A teams. Hence, no Ivy League.
 
2003-11-05 12:01:54 PM
Woo! my team isnt' in the bottom 10!

What's this waiting list? Damn
 
2003-11-05 12:03:14 PM
NEBRASKA = OVERRATED ALL YEAR! For some reason they're a BCS darling. Kansas State = The BCS's biatch.
 
2003-11-05 12:03:32 PM
Hah hah ....

Duke Sucks!

Am I funny yet?

I disagree RON77:

Notre Dame has a horrible record but they're playing top 25 teams almost every week. The teams in the bottom 10 are teams that suck and are getting pounded by sucky teams.

Go Navy! Notre Dame has such a (pardon the pun) holier than thou attitude, it's great to see them get knocked down a few pegs. I do feel sorry for Ty Willingham, he's a good guy and a good coach. Just hope he gets the chance to prove it somewhere else!

Well Notre Dame has higher standards for students than most schools. They don't run a crooked program and they actually suspend players that don't make grades or violate team rules. Ty Willingham is a great coach and I beleive he will have ND back in the top 10 in a few years once he gets a few years of recruiting under his belt.
 
2003-11-05 12:18:56 PM
Plus unlike most of the schools in the Big 12 (Oklahoma, K-State, Nebraska to name a few..) they don't play a powerpuff schedule. Look at the opponents that ND has played this year:
FSU
Washington State
USC
Purdue
Pittsburgh
Boston College

Granted they're taking a whoopin' this year but I would rather play the best and have to earn a top spot rather than pad my standing w/ I-AA clubs on the schedule.

For the Illini fans...it just ain't the same without Lou Henson, the true Big 10 BBall genius (screw that Nazi Knight).

For all the Commodes Commodores out there, take solace in the fact that you're a lot like Northwestern: an actual institution of learning in the midst of a bunch of farm teams for the pros.
 
2003-11-05 01:08:08 PM
Idaho should definately be in the bottom ten next week...Man they suck. When my friends and I travel to their homecoming games it is always depressing.
 
2003-11-05 01:19:26 PM
I'd like to nominate my alma mater, Kentucky, for the coveted #5 spot for losing that nice little 71-63 pillow fight to Arkansas last Saturday.


As usual, UK was in a position to win a big game and still managed to find a way to choke.
 
2003-11-05 01:20:46 PM
We here at SMU feel a strange pride about our reverse dominance of college football. It's one thing to just be the worst team in the country, but to be officially recognized as such is indeed an honor. Still, I'm pulling for the miracle upset of the highly overrated TCU Frogs..someone's gotta expose them.

Also, why can't the BCS make a bowl game of 116 vs. 117, with the loser relegated to Division 1-AA? Oh yeah, money keeps the NCAA from doing anything that makes sense.

GO STANGS

Any list that doesn't include North Carolina(1-8), Notre Dame (2-6), Penn State (2-7), Temple (1-7), UTEP (2-7) and Vanderbilt (1-8) shouldn't be taken seriously.

SMU and Army are winless. Hard to argue against that record.

#5 is reserved for a good team that still screws up. So we've got 7 spots that need to be filled.

Penn State is going downhill. JoePa was written off after 2001's 5-6 season but they went 9-3 last year. I'd wait until Penn State rattles off two straight losing seasons before forcing JoePa out the door.

Notre Dame is an average to decent team who's stuck with a killer schedule.

Rutgers and Temple need to taken out of the Big East Football conference because they have shown they're not ready to compete with anyone on the Division 1-A level.

Temple, sure.

Rutgers have beaten Buffalo, Army, Navy and Temple and are 4-4. While they might be a weaker team, they are certainly competitive with the lower tier of I-A schools.

In the ACC, it's all Florida State. Maryland, NC State and Virginia have all fallen short of expectations. Clemson having a terrible year.

Have to agree there. Georgia Tech has done better than thought, and I think Duke will beat UNC this year.

In the Big 12, The Northern Division is up graps, With Missouri the front runner. Nebraska may have a chance to win it, but that could lead to the showdown between them and the unstoppable Oklahoma Sooners in the big 12 title game.

Nebraska, K-State and Mizzou all have a chance of being the sacrificial lamb. I figure that means they get to play in a December 31 bowl as opposed to a December 28 bowl.
 
2003-11-05 01:35:47 PM
Not a single Ivy League team on this list. It's a Goddamn Disgrace. Eat me, ESPN.

Hmmm...

http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/polls?poll=2

In football, the Ivy League is 1-AA. Sorry, I didn't realize I needed to specify which sport I was talking about in a college football thread.
 
2003-11-05 02:09:59 PM
The ivy league is beneath mention. They don't play real sports. Christ, how seriously can you take an all-white football team?
 
2003-11-05 03:39:38 PM
Dave

That hmmm... was me saying "Oh, yeah, I forgot that they were I-AA in football." And btw: I only mentioned the Ivy league in response to fogice's post. Notice how I mentioned their college FOOTBALL teams in addition to their other sports teams? Guess someone doesn't know a cross-reference when they see one.

what, no one is gonna mention My school.....ULM?(or as espn calls us..."UL you pick'em") we have sucked since i enrolled. in 4 1/2 years since i have been here we have won a grand total of maybe 6 or 7 games. we routinely lose to division two schools. even the players dont brag about being on the football team
 
2003-11-05 04:52:19 PM
At least Army has an excuse. With their academic standards, that means no C- jocks majoring in "Keanu Reeves films as art" and their physical fitness standards means no 300 pound linemen.
 
2003-11-05 05:01:07 PM
BYU should be on this list. I know, I am a student here.

We farking lost to Wyoming!
 
2003-11-05 05:09:06 PM
Gromky - screw you. Princeton and Harvard compete in like 40 Division I sports - more than any other school in the country.

Choke on this:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/features/1997/jockschools/topten10.html

Take any sport other than football (which by the way, the Ivy League invented), and an Ivy League school can compete with your school, if not kick your school's ass.

(That is, unless you go to Stanford. West-Coast wankers.)
 
2003-11-05 05:25:31 PM
There are a lot of Sunbelt Conference schools on the waiting list.

I'll bet Notre Dame loses to BYU next week. I was living in Utah the first time BYU won in that series (after two losses), and I thought people were never going to stop talking about it.

My bad. I totally missed the cross reference and thought your "Hmmm..." was in reference to something about the Ivy League website saying something about their programs being Division 1.

Sorry if I came across as a douche.

one "sport" we totally kick ass at is waterskiing. we have won the national title almost every single year since it began. it isnt recognized as a ncaa sport though, more like a club.
 
2003-11-05 09:40:13 PM
don't know if you'll see this or not...but, no problem Dave

I'm a little defensive when it comes to talking about sports with guys ;) They generally assume I like teams because of their "cute" uniforms. Not because I actually have an interest in sports :)
 
2003-11-06 12:15:34 AM
Seems putting Nebraska on the list with that comment was just as much a shot at Texas as it was Nebraska.
 
2003-11-06 03:39:45 AM
Eh? There are sports other than football? Crazy idea. Does anyone watch them on TV?

Ah, Harvard. Alma mater of the Unabomber.

Does that poke at your sensibilities? ;)

In two weeks, the Utah-BYU "Holy War" will occur. Is that 3pm your time or 3pm EST?

[quote]Strangely, Duke is missing from said list[/quote]

That's because they are sooo much better than Kentucky. Go Blue Devils!!!!
