The Bottom 10 Inspirational Thought of the Week:Oh gently please, Wont you take your time with me? Oh gently please, Stop talking bout dying like havent tried it.All the things, the things I thought Id seen. Sure didnt see that coming.-- Didnt See That Coming Taking Back SundayHere at Bottom 10 headquarters, located along the shoreline of the reservoir where Tom Rinaldi collects our tears, our offices were empty over the weekend. Why? I was on the road in South Florida. Officially, I was there to cover the NASCAR season finale. Well, thats what I told my bosses so theyd pay for my plane ticket. In reality, I was there to sneak up to FI(not A)U. The Golden Panthers, having just hired new head coach Butch Davis, were hosting the Marshall Blundering Herd.As I arrived, Ill admit that I was a bit nervous, and not just because of the tailgaters I saw trying to set a Port-a-John on fire. You see, both FIU and Marshall have been in the Bottom 10 this season. So, would I be greeted with a slap to the face? Two slaps to the face? Would I be thrown out of the press box? Would I be angrily driven out into the middle of the Everglades and dumped overboard where only David Caruso, with his Who soundtrack, might find me?None of that happened. Instead, I was greeted with smiles. I even received one hug. The FIU athletic staff handed me a stat sheet and a free sandwich as a Marshall official said, No, we dont like being on the list. We didnt see that coming this year. But when we get it turned around, you wont see us coming.As we chatted, a TV was on in the corner. On it we saw ... wait. Was that? It couldnt be? ... Yes, Kansas was tearing down a goalpost! The Nayhawks, the odds-on favorite to win the Bottom 10 title with only two games remaining, had just beaten Texas for the first time since 1938.Right on cue, an FIU employee spoke up. I guarantee you no one saw that coming.With apologies to Sonny Crockett and Steve Harvey, heres this weeks Bottom 10.1. Fres-no State (1-10) The good news?

Buffalo Bills, er Bulls (2-9) This week I filed a grievance with my bosses at ESPN asking why Buffalo didnt receive equal time during College GameDays visit to Western Michigan.

Speaking of slipping and falling on ice, the Bills, er, Bulls, will close their season with a trip to Bowling Green to close out the Bottom 10 gauntlet that has been the MAC East.8.

Tradition states that if Temple loses it must change its mascot from an owl to a parrot until next season. If ECU loses then Pee Dee the Pirate must wear a stuffed owl on his shoulder until next fall.10. UTEP Minors (3-8) Three weeks ago FAU and Rice were ranked 1-2 in the Bottom 10. In the past two weeks UTEP has lost to them both. This weekend Texas El Paso hosts North Texas in the Were Both Pretty Bad But Hey Look So Is Texas Bowl, sponsored by the Mack Brown Foundation. The original plan was to award the winner a miners pick axe in the spirit of other axe-wielding rivalries such as Stanford-Cal and Minnesota-Wisconsin. Unfortunately Paydirt Pete accidentally stuck it into Scrappy the Eagles claw.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher doesnt figure the No. 19 Seminoles will have an easy time at North Carolina State on Saturday night.The Seminoles (5-3, 2/3 Atlantic Coast Conference) have lost three of five meetings in Raleigh, including one four years ago while carrying a No. 3 national ranking. Even the wins havent been easy, with Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston and the then-No. 1 Seminoles having to rally from 17 down in a 56-41 shootout in their last visit here in 2014.They like playing us, Fisher said of FSUs troubles in Raleigh.The season hasnt gone as expected for FSU, which was ranked No. 4 in the preseason AP Top 25 but lost in a rout at Louisville then at home to North Carolina on a last-play field goal. Last week, the Seminoles lost a tight contest with No. 3 Clemson, effectively taking them out of the Atlantic Division race.Now FSU is playing for bowl eligibility against the Wolfpack (4-4, 1-3).Were trying to control where we are and be where our feet are, tailback Dalvin Cook said. I love this group of guys. One of the best groups Ive been around and we have to seize the moment. I think we do a good job coming back and assessing things. Guys are embracing it.The Seminoles face a team desperately trying to find its footing after three straight losses. N.C. State has looked lost ever since missing a short field goal that wouldve beaten Clemson at the end of regulation in what became an overtime loss . The Wolfpack followed with a blowout loss at Louisville, then lost at home last week to a Boston College team that had lost 12 straight ACC games.Weve just got to get our confidence back, Wolfpack running back Matt Dayes said. I feel like the guys lost their confidence. But you know each day were getting it back every day. So were moving in the right direction right now. Well be fine this week.---Some other things to know about Saturdays Florida State-N.C. State game:TURNOVER MARGIN: The Seminoles lead the ACC with a plus-seven turnover margin and have forced a turnoveer in nine straight games dating back to last season.dddddddddddd Theyre facing a team that has committed eight turnovers in its current three-game skid. If that trend continues, the Seminoles could be in for a big night.COOK CLOSE TO MARK: Cook leads all power-conference backs in rushing yards (1,069). He needs 193 yards to break Warrick Dunns career record of 3,959 yards. Cook ran for 138 yards with two touchdowns in last years meeting.KEEPING FRANCOIS UPRIGHT: Deondre Francois leads freshman quarterbacks in average passing yards (270.2) but has been sacked 23 times, including six last week against Clemson. Fisher has called Francois one of the toughest quarterbacks he had but the amount of hits he takes is becoming a concern.RUNNING IN PLACE: Dayes is the leagues No. 3 rusher at about 91 yards per game, but the Wolfpacks ground game has struggled with a combined 45 yards against Louisville and Boston College. N.C. State must get Dayes going early. I think weve just got to hit some and get our confidence back up going with it, center Joe Scelfo said. We cant have these past few games with this rushing attack. Its not going to cut it.SAMUELS TOUCHES: Somehow, North Carolina States do-everything all-ACC threat Jaylen Samuels had one offensive touch for 8 yards against BC. Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said some of the plays were designed to get him the ball only to see the defense take him away. Obviously hes one of the best players in the conference and we cant allow the defense to take him away, offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz said. We have to do a better job, I have to do a better job, of making sure he gets the football. That responsibility falls on me.---Associated Press Writer Joe Reedy in Tallahassee, Florida, contributed to this report.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap---More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
