Bottom 10 makes a beeline for Arkansas

The Bottom 10 inspirational thought of the week:

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma and Pa

Not the way that I do love you

Well holy moley me oh my

You're the apple of my eye

Girl, I've never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you're my best friend

I scream it to the nothingness

There ain't nothing that I need

Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie

Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ

There ain't nothing please me more than you

Oh home, let me come home

Home is whenever I'm with you

Oh home, let me come home

Home is whenever I'm with you

La la la take me home

Baby, I'm coming home

-- "Home," Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

When the Bottom 10 train left the station, it departed for destinations unknown, content to let the capricious college football winds set its course for the coming season.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros know the feeling. Last year, they boarded a train along with the bands Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show, knifing across the American Southwest before arriving in New Orleans, playing concerts along the way.

The Bottom 10 feels a certain kinship with that gypsy band of traveling troubadours, whose journey was chronicled in the documentary, "Big Easy Express," released this summer.
