    We knew this was coming, but ESPN took a little extra time (graphically) to nail the point home:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?page=bottom10091609

    I think this is the first time we've been on this list. I recall us being in the "waiting list" in 2006.

    Please Buffs, win the next one.

    At least we're number 5. Number 5 is never a permanent position. Worry about the bottom ten when we're actually buried in there.

    #5 is a place of honor. You really have to #$%! up to get #5. As SanDiegoBuff points out, worry if we get buried at one of the other numbers. Damn... #5... Made my day.

    Lose to Wyoming and I bet we crack the bottom 10 at 6-10... get blown out and we might be in the top four. #5 will be taken over by someone else next week regardless.

    Look at the bright side... we're ranked!

    Finally getting some national coverage again. Glad Hawkins is doing so much for the program.

    Did you look at the other teams on that list - we are by far the biggest, best known, most highly funded program on that list...makes it even worse that we're on there. yikes

    #5 is usually a big name school. I was actually surprised that we got the #5 spot.

    Last week Oregon was #5

    They're the only other BCS program on that list and their coach is likely to be gone long before Hawk.

    I had noted NO ONE cared about the fall of CU in the national media. Well we made the national media. The "dead" Ralphie is cruel twist.

    The good news is that we're young and Hawkins is only in year #4.

    gawd... mine is easy if you know the largest school in Philadelphia.....

    the school that got the boot from the Big East!

    I almost went to UVA law school....

    that would have been embarassing to have 2 BCS schools in the bottom!

    Wow. It's great to be in the same company as Ball State, Tulane and Temple. :cry:

    Well, they managed to somehow win a game which goes a long, long way to getting you off that list. :lol:

    At least Virginia will be on this list with us for awhile. They lost to William and Mary. There next chance at a win might be Indiana. There last 4 games look really, really tough.

    The Buffs on the other hand have a shot this weekend and again when we play KSU. Everything else looks pretty muddy.

    I meant the school, not the football team.

    I thought it might be Bill Cosby U. :smile:, but didn't foreclose on the chance that it might be UVA (for undergrad).
