The Bottom 10 inspirational thought of the week:
I'm bringin' sexy back
Them other boys don't know how to act
I think it's special what's behind your back
So turn around and I'll pick up the slack
-- Justin Timberlake, "SexyBack"
Justin Timberlake wants to bring sexy back? The Bottom 10 did that years ago.
Timberlake released a new album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds", on Sept. 12, which shot to the top of the Billboard charts. That's a nice accomplishment, but is it as sexy as seeing Temple hang around the Bottom 10's top spot for years? Then again, Timberlake dates Cameron Diaz. Maybe he knows something after all.
So, we'll forget about the whole *NSYNC boy band thing and let his solo songs guide us through this week's Bottom 10.
Temple lost 62-0 to Minnesota to remain No. 1 this week, but the rest of the Bottom 10 looks much different. Kent State, Syracuse, SMU and Idaho all won to earn their Bottom 10 exits.
While old favorites Duke, F_U and Utah State follow behind the Owls, the No. 6 to No. 10 spots go to some BCS conference teams that are off to a rough start.
The coveted No. 5 spot goes to the officials in the Oklahoma-Oregon game.
Pillow fight of the week: Central Michigan at Eastern Michigan. It's always great when two parts of the Directional Michigan triumvirate get together.
So, with apologies to Steve Harvey, here's this week's Bottom 10:
Waiting list: Canes' pregame stomp, Eastern Michigan (0-3), Miami (Ohio) (0-3), Ole Miss (1-2), Rice (0-3) and Virginia (1-2).
