RedHawks, Buffs reach point break(Bottom 10 College Football)
The Bottom 10 inspirational thought of the week:

It's getting late in the evening, it's time now for dreaming
A candle is burning and tables are burning, yeah
The shadows of darkness will fade in the pale moonlight
And when we get together as one it will be all right

-- "Raising Heaven (in Hell Tonight)," Patrick Swayze

The Bottom 10 mourns the passing of Patrick Swayze. We also mourn the departures of New Mexico State, Oregon, Duke and Washington from the Bottom 10. From Sam Wheat in "Ghost" to Johnny Castle in "Dirty Dancing," Swayze's characters evoked a certain spirit that the Bottom 10 teams could use. Nobody puts Bottom 10 teams in a corner. They deserve to be dancing on the big stage.

Miami (Ohio) made the biggest move in the Bottom 10 this week. The RedHawks, who are the only Football Bowl Subdivision team that hasn't scored through two games, flew from the waiting list all the way to No. 1. Western Kentucky, Ball State and Rice are poised to take Miami's place should the RedHawks win -- or at least score.

1 Miami(Oh) 0-2 Comment:"Dirty Dancing": The RedHawks haven't registered a point on offense so far this season and have been outscored 90-0. Doubt they are having the time of their lives.

2. Western Kentucky 0-2 "The Outsiders": Darrell, Soda, Ponyboy and the rest of the gang were outsiders. Newbie WKU is getting the same treatment from the FBS establishment.

3. Ball State 0-2 "Red Dawn": After losing to Football Championship Subdivision school New Hampshire, the Cardinals definitely aren't showing the same kind of fight Jed and the Wolverines did.

4. Rice 0-2 "To Wong Foo Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar": "Attitude is everything" was the tagline of a title that demanded inclusion. The Owls' D, which is giving up 49.5 points per game, needs a new attitude.

5. Colorado 0-2 "Point Break": Bodhi craved 100 percent pure adrenaline. The Buffs could use some of that after getting drilled in Toledo put them on their backs.

6. Tulane 0-2 "Road House": How did it feel to get bounced from the Double Deuce by Dalton? Ask the Green Wave. They take a beating almost every Saturday.

7. New Mexico 0-2 "Next Of Kin": New Mexico State won its way off the Bottom 10, but no need for revenge in the Land of Disenchantment. The Lobos are ready to step into the Aggies' place.

8. Temple 0-1 "City of Joy": Why was the City of Brotherly Love transformed into the City of Joy last week? Well, the Owls had a bye week.

9. Eastern Michigan 0-2 "Steel Dawn": Nomad was a desert warrior, carving the future with his sword. The Eagles tried to carve a new future at Northwestern, but fell just short and remain in the Bottom 10 desert.

10. Virginia 0-2 "Youngblood": Al Groh appears to be on thin ice in Charlottesville. If the Cavs don't turn things around, a hot new coaching prospect could be skating into town after 2009.

Waiting list: Big 12's power ranking, Marshall (1-1), Memphis (0-2), Notre Dame's attempt to run out the clock, Ohio State's offense, UTEP (0-2), Washington State (0-2).

2. WSU has one of the worst teams I've seen
they've had their butts kicked twice, last week by an Hawaii team that the week before had to rally in the 4th qtr to beat Central Arkansas.
