The Bottom 10 inspirational thought of the week:Maybe its been crazy and maybe Im to blame But I put my heart above my head Weve been through it all and you loved me just the same And when youre not there I just need to hear. Nike Cortez Forrest Gump ...Hello, my friend, hello Its good to need you so Its good to love you like I do And to feel this way When I hear you say, hello...-- Hello Again by Neil DiamondIt was July 4 and I was sitting on the beach with my stack of college football preseason magazines. You know the ones. As I devoured them page by page a steady stream of foot traffic trucked by back and forth, ignoring me as I ignored them.Then a guy in a Roll Tide tank top stopped and shouted. Hey, man. Ive been walking by here all week and Ive seen you reading those magazines every day! But youre always reading the back pages. I aint seen you looking at the front of one of them yet. What the hail are you doing?!Research, I told him, flipping my Lindys around to reveal the page I was reading, the one with the corners folded over, highlighter marks all over it, and a big photo of Kansas safety Fish Smithson. Rock Chalk, son.Listen, any schmoe can start up in the high rent end of a magazine that proudly proclaims WE RANK ALL 128 FBS TEAMS! But here at Bottom 10 Headquarters, located in the storage room where Paul Finebaum stocks the Turtle Wax for his head, we believe in starting with team No. 128 and climbing our way up.Its like Bruce Wayne when he had to get out of that cave prison with a broken back. Its excruciating. But did you see that look on the Dark Knights face when he finally emerged? Sure, he had no idea where he was and still had to travel thousands of miles to get back to Gotham City only to have a weird fight with an unintelligible bad guy, get stabbed in the ribs and die in a nuclear blast ... but hey, he still looked relieved, right?Over the weekend you may have recognized that same look on the faces of UCF, Texas State, Eastern Michigan, Louisiana-Monroe and, yes, Kansas. All were contenders for the 2015 Bottom 10 crown and all emerged in 2016 as winners. We certainly saw that look on the faces of the Jayhawks fans, who stormed the field after the teams first win in 15 games. Sure, it was against Rhode Island, a bad FCS school. And sure, they still have to go to Memphis, Texas Tech, Baylor and Oklahoma all before Halloween. But hey, they still looked relieved, right?Anyway, like Neil Diamond dialing the phone creepily at 2 a.m., were glad to have them back on the line as we emerge from the darkness of summer.With apologies to Yussel Rabinovitch and Steve Harvey, heres the first Bottom 10 of the 2016 season.1. Huh-why-yuh (0-2)Hawaii made a 10,000-mile round trip to lose to Cal 51-31. Then Hawaii made a 9,000-mile round trip to lose to Michigan 63-3. If my math is right -- and it rarely is -- the Rainbow Warriors have traveled 19,000 miles to become the nations first 0-2 team. In related news, on Sunday I ran around my house 40 times in 100 degree heat and then had my wife hit me in the face with a shovel.2. North Texas Forty (0-1)For all of the talk of the Greatest Opening Weekend Ever and the pats on the backs of the folks in Atlanta, Green Bay and Arlington for putting together great early season matchups, we here at Bottom 10 HQ are feeling a little slighted. We worked hard to get this earliest-ever Pillow Fight of the Week on the calendar between North Texas and SMU, both of whom finished last year in the top bottom six of the Bottom 10. And while Jerry Jones and Chick-Fil-A may have offered up millions of dollars to book their teams, we simply offered a promise to the winner of our game that they would receive: (A) A free pass from our Week 1 rankings and (B) a sandwich bag full of tokens from Chuck-E-Cheese. So, if you need Chad Morris, hell be at the Skee-Ball pit.3. Charlotte 0and1ers (0-1)Speaking of great matchups, we here at Bottom HQ are already lobbying the producers of College Gameday to do their Week 3 show from Eastern Michigan at Charlotte. And by lobbying I mean being hung up on, having my Twitter blocked and having all emails from my address flagged as spam.4. Warshington State (0-1)What was it Crash Davis said to Nuke Laloosh? Your shower shoes have fungus on them. Youll never make it to the bigs with fungus on your shower shoes. Think classy, youll be classy. If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the pressll think youre colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it means you are a slob. Somewhere someone is saying to Mike Leach, Your opening weekends have FCS losses on them. Youll never make it to the bigs with FCS losses on your opening weekends. Think classy, youll be classy. If you beat an FCS team on opening weekend, you can talk like a pirate and quote Geronimo and the press will think youre colorful. Until you beat an FCS team on opening weekend, however, it means you are weird.5. S-E-C! S-E-C!Maybe you heard, but the conference had an interesting weekend. In all fairness, five of the seven teams that lost were arguably the five teams expected to be at the bottom of the league standings and the ones really locked down the years first Covered Fifth Spot. But it wasnt so much that they lost. It was how they lost. Just like it wasnt so much that the other teams won. It was how they won. With the exception of Alabama, the victorious teams and their fans all looked like they were playing and watching their games after a colony of fire ants had been dumped into their pants.6. Buffalo Bills, er Bulls (0-1)Not only was this the first time that Albany defeated Buffalo in a non-Division II game, it had to be the only time that a Great Dane ever beat up a Bull.7. New Mexico State (0-1)The Other Aggies lost to former Bottom 10 stalwart UTEP. Now its on to the game so awesome it has two nicknames, the Rio Grande Rivalry and the Battle of I-25. New Mexico State and New Mexico have been meeting on the football field since 1894. New Mexico was merely a U.S. territory until 1912. Little known fact: Back then they were known as New Mexico Not Yet A State Aggies.8. UMess (0-1)Heads up ... only 81 days until UMass visits Hawaii.9. Northwestern (0-1)I was honestly torn here. Which was the worst B1G outcome, Northwestern losing to Western Michigan or Rutgers being housed by Washington? In the search for an answer I took it the streets via the inaugural Bottom 10 Poll of the People on Twitter. The Wildcats were the overwhelming choice, 70 percent to 30 percent. So, hey at least they won something, right?10. Kansas (1-0)Yes, I am fully aware that in the intro I applauded the passion of Kansas fans and even compared them to Batman. Yes, I am aware that the Jayhawks are currently undefeated. But yes, I am also aware that when the small group of students who actually bothered to show up for the game decided to storm the field, the public address announcer publicly shamed them by declaring over the loudspeakers: This is a new era of Kansas football, an era in which you should expect to win. He could have saved oxygen by just saying Get off my lawn!Waiting list: Temple of Doom (0-1), Tulane to Turn Back Now (0-1), UVA (0-1), I-OW-uh State (0-1), Stuck in a Rutgers (0-1), FI(not A)U 0-1, Colora-DOH! State (0-1), replay delays so long you could go mow the lawn, cheap shot late hits when games are over. Balenciaga Speed Trainer womens . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour.

NEW YORK -- Bill Laimbeer wasnt surprised his star center reached another milestone so early in her career.Charles scored 23 points, including her 4000th, to help New York beat Phoenix 92-70 on Saturday night.We talk about inside that shes the best post player in the world, men or women. the Liberty coach said. Shes that consistent and that dominant. Theres more to her that were waiting to see.Charles, who also had 15 rebounds, became the sixth fastest player in WNBA history to reach that milestone and moved the Liberty closer to clinching at least the third seed in the playoffs. One more victory will assure New York of a bye in the first round and a home game in the second.New York (20-9) got off to a slow start missing its first seven shots. The Liberty led 13-12 with just over 4 minutes left in the first quarter before outscoring Phoenix 16-2 the rest of the period. Charles had nine of the teams points during that burst.Phoenix (13-16), which lost in Connecticut on Friday night, was down 26 points in the third quarter before rallying within 11 early in the fourth quarter. The Mercury could get no closer.They played better, bottom line, Phoenix Mercury star Diana Taurasi said. Not tired, no nothing. They were better than us today.New York led by 14 at the half and blew the game open early in the third as frustration was setting in for the Mercury. After Diana Taurasi drew contact on a play, but no foul was called, assistant coach Todd Troxel was ejected for arguing with the officials. Air Max 97 For Sale. That seemed to spark Phoenix, which trailed 68-42 at that point. The Mercury scored 13 of the next 16 to close within 71-55 after three.Phoenix got within 73-62 early in the final period, but Charles hit a basket and then a three-point play by Brittany Boyd sealed the win. Boyd finished with a season-high 19 points, starting in place of Tanisha Wright (knee). New York, which has won 20 games in consecutive seasons, also was without Shoni Schimmel (concussion) and Kiah Stokes (hip).Laimbeer said that he didnt expect Stokes to play the rest of the regular season, but was hopefully to have at Wright back at some point soon. He wasnt sure about Schimmels status since concussions are trickier to predict.Marta Xargay led the Mercury with 16 points and DeWanna Bonner added 15.Charles reached 4,000 points on a three-point play late in the second quarter. Shes the 29th player to achieve that mark and is the third youngest according to Elias Sports Bureau. The Liberty honored Charles, Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner before the game for helping the U.S. win a gold medal at the Rio Olympics. New York also honored Penny Taylor, who is retiring at the end of the season.It was nice, Taylor said. I try not to think about it and just play the games we have left.
