For the members of our latest Bottom 10, there may be hope after all. Just look at what's happening at Texas-San Antonio.
With the Pillow Fight of the Century behind us, what's next for the Bottom 10? Well, a new No. 1 for starters.
- Texas lands former 5-star Alabama LB Davis
- Independent N.M. State moves football to spring
- N.M. Gov. asks colleges to postpone fall sports

Don't worry, Kansas still makes our Bottom 10 list, but it's no longer the worst of the worst.
— Greg Bell ran for a touchdown and a career-high 165 yards, Jordon Brookshire scrambled for a score, and San Diego State pulled away in the third quarter to beat New Mexico State 28-10 on Saturday night in the Aztecs' season opener.
— Jacob Cowing had a career-high 158 yards receiving, including a 59-yard score, and UTEP opened the season with a 30-3 victory over New Mexico State on Saturday night.
With the new season comes our new rankings of the worst of the worst, but there's a familiar squad at the top of the list.
After a relatively quiet 2020, college coaches across the country find themselves on the 2021 hot seat. We go conference-by-conference to see whose seat has the most pressure this season.
Can the Irish rebound from a pair of blowouts at the end of 2020? What's in store for Malik Willis and Liberty? Let's break down where things stand for all the FBS independents heading into the 2021 season.

We examine each Power 5 conference and take a look at the Group of 5 to determine the coaches entering win-or-else seasons.
