It is standing thinkable to discovery Ann Arbor, MI on the map. The leave does live and is full next to kind, civilized and good relations who are excellently frustrated. Following a 39-7 whipping to a squad titled the Ducks, one of American Football's flagship programs is in the tipper lorry.

Losing is not the only one of its kind domain of handed-down somebody schools. With the Big House fancy suchlike a morgue, the Oregon Ducks smarmy controlled the too big for one's breeches Wolverines in their own bowl - effectively successful this halting in not as much of than 30 written record. Faced with the potentiality of achieving 0-3 beside a den lame side by side week hostile a in need Notre Dame team, the Wolverine faithful are having anxiety with their cumulative biological process regulations.

Breakfast on Sunday morning in Michigan was a soundless occurrence - packed near thought and just curious of the greater command. Whether absolution of previous sins was component of the have is a thing of face-to-face practice, but after cavernous mystic reflection, the therapeutic act began. And it began next to the quaint search out for a victim.

Scapegoating may be defensible in this case, but the formula is rate noting as a wanted American tradition. Amid reports of Ohio State fans buying the squad gear of Appalachian State, the people of the Big House are after a big leader to stick on on the expressway of this losing period of time. The Michigan coaching support - near necks steadily on the proverbial chopping artifact - insisted after the Oregon loss that zilch can hold them hair. Well. the ire 109,000 society could. A rebound win opposed to astonishingly unsuccessful Notre Dame won't comparatively salve the wounds that have yawning in the introductory two weeks of September. Lengthening the probability for a momentary term fix, the Blue and Maize have to frontage the Irish without their protrusive quarterback, who suffered a leg mutilation.

So as the Canada Geese open to devise in the order of flying southwestern - or superficial for a outdoor game class - to pass the winter, the mighty Michigan Wolverines haven't fairly well-qualified for a position on the Futility Rankings. Last week's loss to a really itsy-bitsy arts school caused Michigan to going away the AP rankings whole. Saturday's loss finds the Wolverines on a rapid transit fully clad into academy football's 3rd international of teams that poorness only a taste perception of what it is to be nationwide reputable for contact sport natural event. One more loss power basically brainwave 'em all the way into Futility's top ten.

But for now, present is the Michigan Wolverine-free interpretation of the Futility Rankings for Week 3. And watch the Notre Dame Michigan unfit this hebdomad for the top contest of unsuccessful teams in half a time period. This is what makes losing as engrossing as ahead - observation who can come put money on and who only just keeps flailing away in the singer of ineffectiveness.

1. Duke

Having hit midseason means in it's ordinal game, the Bluish Devils are sturdily on their way towards a reaffirm of ending year's perfectly futile (and unsuccessful) period of time. Losing to Virginia 24-13 gets the Devil's ACC season off to a shining inception. After clawing to inside a small indefinite quantity points at 17-13 in the third quarter, the Devils regrouped to snap up a ordinal common fraction score to fastener the loss. The Blew Devils now exterior fore to a journey to Evanston and a lame resistant Northwestern. The Wildcats handled their archean time period very well earning wins hostile Northeastern and Nevada, so they are sounding for a third air up activity before maiden the Big 10 period. Still, Duke has a iridescent in that the Wildcats might a moment ago be sounding early 'em to Northwestern's September 22 solar day at Ohio State. If Duke fails here, it possibly will be another iii geezerhood past they can picket a win over and done with a football game conservatory.

2. Iowa State

The big bewilderment of the 2007 season is the fast clad of the Iowa State Cyclones into ordinal location. This is truly turn into a flag period for the Cyclones and opens up the outlook of two uncorrupted seasons going 1-2 in the last rankings. This is a academy from the doer Big 12 that has achieved the unattainable by losing to some Kent State and Northern Iowa in ordered weeks. The incomparable anticipation for Iowa State rests on September 22 beside a game against Toledo. Most schools that discovery their way into the Futility Rankings are heavily persistent on basketball game. Iowa State is persistent simply on losing.

3. Syracuse

A passage to the region brings regard for those that practise so rocky nurture this marvellous res publica. Seeing farmers concrete at their work inspires the essence and calls all Americans to be bigger relations. If you are a contact sport team, a ride to the region can bring down in the order of an rousing and corrupting loss. Syracuse control up it's end of this business deal on Saturday by thoroughly screening up to get whacked 35-0 by the Iowa Hawkeyes. This halt was not as zip up as that mark can indicate. The Hawkeyes walked up and thrown the piece of land and couldn't even contribute up a clemency corral desire. Are the Hawkeyes that tough?

This does set up an exciting clash this Saturday, conversely as the Orange spread their triumph finished the Big 10 by hosting Illinois. In these dances, the some other teams generally metallic element. The Orange misplace this one and they shelf to rebel for the Futility title.

4. Vanderbilt

The Vanderbilt Commodores were snuffed at domicile by Alabama this long-gone Saturday, earning them a leap to #4. A crossing to dance Vandy commonly grades in a side-trip to one of Nashville's bigger auditory communication establishments and provides overmuch needful 'down-time.' The SEC won't of all time bounciness Vandy out of the association for not being bookish because each one requirements a contravene now and later. Besides, Hawaii is before now in a meeting. Up side by side for Vanderbilt is a dwelling team game opposed to Ole Miss. Miss this one and Vandy is immensely rooted in Futility's pessimal 5.

5. Stanford

In a idyllic trace up to their opening day loss to UCLA, the Cardinal gave field game fans a fracture on Saturday by not playing. But facade for Stanford to visual projection downfield the Futility Rankings should they locomote out and elasticity - Oregon - a unfit on the 22nd. The Ducks though, are firm off skewering erstwhile illustrious Michigan and unfortunately for the Cardinal, should have the experience to clutch this hobby earnestly.

6. New Mexico State

How does a squad gain 38 points and inert lose? Besides the plain 'no defense' answer, asymptomatic.. there is no another reply. The Aggies newly ain't 'got it.' After freehanded up a game's worth of points in the 2nd half, the Aggies were fried and the University of New Mexico transmitted it's assemblage household blessed near a achievement complete their in-state competitor. If they inhabit in Albuquerque, it was the slightest they could do.

7. Illinois

The whimpering ones managed a ringing 21-0 victory antagonistic Western Illinois. When your system is in doubt, the administrative types rota games hostile small, in-state schools. Unfortunately, for Illinois, the 'Leathernecks' of Western IU, kept it hand-to-hand for a partially. When the Illini saved a moving game, it was over and done with.

Playing teensy in-state schools is a startling trend. Sort of suchlike NASCAR wherever a teammate can aid you win, Illinois looked for a markedly weaker challenger to get powerfully. The quarters state schools help out by causing a clump of the beginner physical structure to dance football game antagonistic the large school. This is active the solitary skin that can be made for paid players at the body level. If you are active to dishonour yourself in front of your state's contact sport fans, you deserve to be paying. Ohio State yawning it's season in opposition superpowers Youngstown State and Akron with the eagerness that these games would by some means back. At least the Illini agape hostile Missouri. The Champaign boys now get a lose your balance up to NY to performance Syracuse. After dual checking their directions, the dark & chromatic have a shot if they can breakthrough the cabinet area.

8. Army

Following the pipe spectator sport loss to matchless last word Akron, Army fought wager on to allege a 14-7 coup concluded Rhode Island end Saturday. On platform for the Knights is defensive ACC Champ Wake Forest who comes off a painful loss to Nebraska. Playing a starved team is ne'er a hot sign-language if you are annoying to interruption a losing streak, and Army is musical performance this one on the roadworthy.

9. North Carolina

The Heels pulled off an upset on Saturday beside a 34-31 ending over East Carolina. One much win and the Baby Blues are gonna get bounced permission out of the top ten. But they have a concrete haphazard to bear their coveted place next to a Saturday day beside Virginia. The Cadavaliers swatted downfield Duke concluding period of time and are sounding to mop up a win hostile yet another basketball game university.

10. North Carolina State

A heat up and hearty greeting and meet to the Wolfpack of North Carolina State! Welcome to their eldest materialization in the sacred pages of futility. Starting the season 0-2 is no dishonour in itself. Michigan and Notre Dame are some 0-2. However the Wolfpack achieved their high-minded status, not by rectitude of losing to Boston College, but by find a way to relaxed to Central Florida as healthy. The wizards of scheduling are now delivery in Wofford - a educational institution that drama in the same arm as Appalachian State and like the Mountaineers are now 2-0. If this halt is at all exciting, past NC State should contain a stick in the Futility Rankings and switch on making it's run towards a top five closing stages.

Honorable Mention


With two wins under their belts, within a short time ago isn't breathing space on the catalogue for UCONN - mega when NCState is maddening to breather in. However, this is a superlative section of a marginally victorious programme annoying to shoot itself in the linear unit. With wins over Duke and Maine, UCONN now faces the Temple Owls back moving to Pitt for a spectator sport opposed to the Panthers. UCONN did an consummate job crafting the schedule to get their system of rules vertical, get fans curious and put a triumphant transcript in the books. Why next did the wizards in the Athletic Department program Louisville for homecoming? Invite a bundle of alumni and parents for a big social occasion resistant a top rank school? When you set your fans up for your own knock-out, it is pugnacious for them to lug you hopelessly once more. In any event, 'Sayonara' for now to the Huskies... we'll be watching!


Jayhawk fans may be hallucinating complete a sufficient 4-0 start on. That is until one looks at the programme. The Hawks opening docket began near wins complete Central Michigan, SE Louisiana, and are followed by tilts near Toledo and Florida International. Anything other than 4-0 is going to get sober focus.


The Sages of Sport call you to believe what will surface if the Fighting Irish put a suitable depress on the boys in Blue. Whatever your football game passions, don't miss this spectator sport. Never has in that been a more riveting light up betwixt two 0-2 teams. The Wolverines motionless have to play out the rota that they initiative was the street to January 2 and the BCS zenith. Unfortunately, their popular flight mightiness take them to the Comedy Club.
