As we closed the book on Week 6 and the Bottom 10 illegally Dylan Bundy Youth JERSEY turned the crown of its helmet toward mid-October, the color of the leaves hadn't been the only aspect of our world that's started to turn. Here at Bottom 10 HQ, located in the clock factory where Chris Petersen stockpiles alarm clocks to send to East Coast writers to keep them up for late kickoffs, we have been covered up. No, not in the falling orange-and-red foliage, but rather the scorching orange-and-red hot takes from the fans of the teams whom those fine people deem worthy of inclusion in our rankings. Yeah, that's right. People are wearing us out 'round the clock, demanding that their teams be at the top of the bottom of the college football world. Funny how that works. Just one month ago, they werehttp://www.authenticbaltimoreorioles.com/Dylan-Bundy-Jerseyangry to be included. Now they are pouring that same passion into begging to be members of the club. We call it #Bottom10Lobbying. No fan base has made the above described transition quite like the group that's closest to my house. I am surrounded by Charlotte alums on a daily basis, so I have witnessed firsthand their journey through denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Just this week my 49er cul-de-sac neighbor has told me to talk to the hand, then extended one finger of that hand, pointed at me to ask that his team at be moved out of the top/bottom spot, then used that hand to wipe away tears and then, ultimately, asked me to shake that hand. It's been a little out of hand. So, how did the other Spartans leapfrog a couple of oh-fer teams even though they have a win? First, that win was against Cal Poly, an 0-6 FCS team. Second, I received a 900-word numerically-based argument for the SJSU to be ranked as America's worst team. It was sent by a man who says he's actually a statistics professor at San Jose State. His name is Dr. San Jose Estado ... oh, wait ... I think I got #Bottom10Lobbying prank-emailed. Boiling Green won, thanks Authentic Jose Altuve Womens jersey to a bad snap-turned-TD return against My Hammy of Ohio. The Buffalo Bulls Not Bills lost in seven (!) overtimes to Western Michigan. But Kent kept on keeping on, getting rolled 24-3 by Northern Illinois. But the best #Bottom10Lobbying effort came from a fan of 2-3 Eastern Michigan, stuck in a meh Ypsilanti purgatory somewhere between winning the Bottom 10 title two years ago and going to a bowl game last December. The most resolute #Bottom10Lobbying argument I received this week came from an East Carolina alum and former letterman, incredulous in his demands to know my reasoning in not having his alma mater in the top/bottom spot. He delivered his argument not by way of Twitter, email, text or phone call. It came via all four, nearly all at once, all day and night. Finally, I had to step in and stop the deluge. "OK, I got it!" I screamed. "That's enough, Dad! Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is popularly known as The Swamp. And now the Florida Gators will look the part. For Saturday's football game against Texas A&M, Florida will wear a new uniform designed to evoke the look and feel of an alligator. The uniform, which was under development for two years and was unveiled Monday night, features a "swamp green" jersey http://www.authentichoustonastros.com/Jose-Altuve-Jerseywith an alligator-skin pattern. The helmet, pants and socks are rendered in the same color, but without the gator-skin treatment. This is not the first time that Nike, Florida's uniform outfitter, has created a college football uniform based on a rough-skinned aquatic creature. The company has created various frog-skinned uniforms for the TCU Horned Frogs in recent years.
