9 undefeated teams
3 winless teams (12 including winless against FBS)

For contrast,
in 2015 there were 10 undefeated teams and 4 winless (2 straight up and 2 more including winless against FBS)
in 2016 there were 5 undefeated teams and 5 winless (0 straight up and 5 including winless against FBS)
in 2017 I apparently didn't run a thread on this

Of all the years I've done this, its the only time Kansas hasn't begun midseason on this list

BTW, if UTEP doesn’t win it will be head coach Dana Dimel’s 2nd winless season. He went 0-11 at Houston in 2001.

But just remember Boudreaux Teevens threw up one winners both here and Stanford. He was just setting a bar for Dana to slide under.

If I remember right the thinking was that he assembled the team that Bowden won with and after a stint as Spurrier's assistant offensive coordinator at Florida he deserved a second chance, but he didn't turn in a 1 win season there. 2, 4, and 4. He won almost as many in 3 seasons there as he did in 5 here (10 vs 11).

Thanks for catching my error. It was Walt Harris who threw up the one-fer at Stanford not Buddy. Teevens did recruit above his weight at Tulane and lost an incredible number of competitive games. He just was not successful at half time adjustments while at Tulane. Bowden and RR did win with basically the same players.

Other than Fritz I did think he is the nicest coach at Tulane I've ever met. He is well set at Dartmouth but lost a very close game to Princeton today for Ivy League lead.

I had to look it up, I thought Harris went 0-11 but it was 1-11.

UTEP cruising though. 34-10.

UTEP wins, they’re 1-8. Rice is 1-9 with no wins against FBS teams.

Most importantly, Alabama is staying undefeated. Thus far, emphatically.

Post-game edit: Alabama 29, LSU 0.

Wish folks were still having general college football discussion threads each week like we used to...

I posted on Facebook, that even if you add up the scores of the two Alabama QBs today (actual, and USF transfer) and two LSU QBs (actual and McMillan), Alabama still beat LSU. :lol:

For obvious reasons, this place had been dead, dead, dead the last several weeks. I'm starting to wonder of the health of some of the regulars.

Three teams came off the winless list, but all three did so by beating other teams on the list :oops:


4 undefeated teams standing, 4 winless (against FBS) teams standing

UConn finishes with no FBS wins. Remember when that was a Tulaney thing to do?

(yes, I know, we never actually did that, but it felt like we were that low)

How did they ever beat Rhode Island?

And yes they are worse than we ever were by far. This may be one of the worst football teams in the last several decades nationwide
