Rating the worst-offfanbases

This past weekend was rough
one for many college-foot-
ball fans. Half of the top 10
lost, and six of
the top 13 went
from undefeat-
ed to uncertain.

Since Mich- BELL
igan's season BELL _

has been rather depressing so far,
what's a better pick-me-up for
Michigan fans than taking solace
in others' misery?
And who better to ask than me,
someone who has covered the Wol-
verinesthrough its less-than-desir-
able start? Well, I guess you could
ask someone who knows what
they're talking about, but that's
not an option with this column.
You're stuck with me, so here are
my rankings of the nation's angri-
est fan bases after this weekend's
batch of upsets:

Oregon Ducks - Oregon had
by far the most respectable loss
of the weekend, but it still hurt. A
win over Cal would have nearly
assured the Ducks a BCS bowl bid.
Southern Cal looks like a near-lock
for the National Championship
game, so second place in the Pac-
10 should be good for a Rose Bowl
bid. But losing at home to a confer-
ence foe - even a strong one - isn't
exactly fun.
Sucks-to-be-you rating: 5/10
Texas Longhorns - Tobe hon-
est, Texas fans probably aren't
even that distraught this week.
After seeing their team play the

previous two weeks, this past
weekend's loss couldn't have been
much of a surprise. Granted, most
didn'texpectthe Longhorns to lose
to a visiting Kansas State squad by
20, but let's be honest, everyone
knew Texas was bound to lose
sooner than later.
Sucks-to-be-yourating: 5/10
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
- Everything was looking up for
Rutgers entering Saturday's game.
Pre-season Big East favorites Lou-
isville and West Virginia already
had conference blemishes, and the
Scarlet Knights had a weak Mary-
land team scheduled for its final

non-conference tune up.
But Rutgers sputtered against
the Terrapins, and South Florida
took over as Big East favorites after
its impressive win over the Moun-
taineers.
Most important, Rutgers is in
New Jersey. Nothing good is in or
has ever come from New Jersey.
Ever. There's really nothing that
can cheer up Scarlet Knights fans
besides the .fact that they're still
unbeaten in Big East play.
Sucks-to-be-you rating: 8/10

ing National Champions capped off
