The Bottom 10 goes apocalyptic

The Bottom 10 inspirational thought of the week:

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

-- R.E.M., "It's The End Of The World"

According to The Australian, Mel Gibson is at it again. While promoting "Apocalypto," his new movie, he drew parallels between the collapsing Mayan civilization depicted in the movie and the current situation in the United States.

"I don't mean to be a doomsday guy," Gibson said. "But the Mayan calendar does end in 2012, boys and girls. Have fun!"

So, we'll have some fun and let Mad Max's movies guide us through this week's addition of the Bottom 10.

Hopefully, the end of the world won't occur in six years, but it probably feels like it's pretty close for the 11 remaining Division I-A teams still searching for a win in 2006. All 11 of the winless teams find a home in this week's Bottom 10 except Rice, which gets the week off for obvious reasons.

Temple didn't lose 62-0 and actually posted a touchdown in Saturday's 41-7 loss to Western Michigan, but the Owls are still the Bottom 10's No. 1 team.

With Duke having Saturday off, Utah State seized the opportunity. A week after a 48-0 loss to Utah, the Aggies dropped a 38-0 decision to BYU on Saturday. Hello No. 2 spot. Duke slipped to No. 4, while Bottom 10 favorite F_U remained at No. 3.

Deciding on the right team to place in the coveted No. 5 spot wasn't easy. Ball State's loss to North Dakota State had the Cardinal in the running, but we just couldn't overlook Sparty's collapse against the Irish in East Lansing. Michigan State takes its turn in the Bottom 10's place of honor.

The pillow fight of the week is a triple feature this time. How could you decide between Arkansas State at FIU, FAU at Louisiana-Monroe and Idaho at Utah State?

So, with apologies to Steve Harvey, here's this week's Bottom 10:

Waiting list: Arkansas State (1-2), Florida fans booing Chris Leak, Illinois (1-3), Ole Miss (1-3), North Carolina (1-3), Syracuse's uniforms and Virginia (1-3).
