The Bottom Ten/NCAA

By Gaylon Kent
The Writer's Shack

November 5, 2015

The quest for The Dan Henning Trophy - symbolic of NFL Bottom Ten supremacy, got even more cutthroat than usual as the two top teams in this week's survey all fired key employees in the quest for every possible advantage in the race for the Bottom Ten medal stand.

This week's imbroglio, as the nags limp up the backstretch: 

1.
Tennessee Titans (1-6; lost to Houston 20-6) - Hell bent on world and B-10 domination, Titans fire head coach despite 2014 B-10 title, current league-best six (6)-game skid…Feast or famine Titans have lost three (3) games in 2015 by three (3) or fewer points, three (3) by 14 or more…Next Loss: at New Orleans

2.
Detroit Lions (1-7;  lost to Kansas City 45-10 ) - Lions keep coach but clean out front office in quest to save season that started with 0-16 dreams…Current rankings of 31st in Rushing Yards, 30th in Rushing Defense should ensure another medal stand finish…Next Loss: at Green Bay (11/15)

3.
Dallas Cowboys (2-5; lost to Seattle 13-12) - Cowboys folding nicely after loss of starting QB, having lost five (5) straight, second best in league…Consistent offense punts four (4) times, kicks four (4) field goals…Next Loss: Philadelphia

4.
Cleveland Browns (2-6; lost to Arizona 34-20 ) - If playoffs began today, Browns wouldn't be in them, just like they haven't been since 2002…Browns have lost three (3) straight, and are hoping to avoid midseason win streak that annually derails B-10 medal stand chances…Next Loss: at Cincinnati (11/5)

5.
Ken Whisenhunt (3-20) - B-10 pollsters "pretty sure" Whisenhunt only coach in history to coach in Super Bowl, win B-10 title…With 48-71 career mark, NFL head coaching career more or less over as B-10 staffers consider Whisenhunt's application to have future B-10 award named after him.
.
6.
AFC South (9-21) - Top three teams tied with five (5) losses makes division easy pick for weekly Pete Rozelle Award, issued to NFL's worst division…No one over .500…Last place Titans have won one (1) game and are only one (1) game back in loss column…Next Loss: Automatic spot in Pop Warner Southern Regional playoffs.

7.
Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys - Sunday thriller entered into B-10 Game of the Year contest holding nation spellbound with seven (7) three (3)-play drives, six (6) field goals and seven (7) punts…Teams exhibit mastery of fundamentals with ten (10) penalties.

8.
San Diego Chargers (2-4; lost to Baltimore 29-26) - Defense rising to occasion, giving up 28.1 ppg during current four (4)-game skid…Front office reeling after Los Angeles sends back relocation application, saying it doesn't want a lousy football team moving in…Next Loss: Chicago (11/9)

9.
Bottom Ten Alumni Association - B-10 pollsters had to squint and shake newspaper to make sure they saw correctly: the Cincinnati Bengals, former B-10 stalwarts, are actually 7-0 and usually reliable Oakland has a winning record at 4-3…Next Loss: 2015 seaons, as there is still plenty of time for a losing streak to put both teams back in B-10 picture.

10.
Kansas City Royals (4-1) - America's Royals, your Royals, our Royals, give national morale huge boost by winning first World Series in 30 years, shoving Mets around with clutch hitting, inspired base running and between-games charity work…A couple of days later 800,000 people gather to celebrate and nobody gets shot.

Sunday October 18
The Wife and I went for a walk today and ended up inside a house for rent a block down for us...The house is, at least, 8o years old while 80 years ago occupants would've marveled at the indoor plumbing, it would not be a very functional house right now…The stairs are very narrow and are mostly between two walls and don't have the handrails that become more and more important as you get older…Plus, the only bathroom is on the ground floor, also important as you get older, especially if your sleeping on the top floor and have to negotiate fun house stairs to get there.
The young couple that bought it was out staining the deck and said they've had some calls on it, but nothing has worked out so far…I forgot to ask how much they're asking for it.

Also on the walk we ran into a mom, Becky, out for a walk with her kids…One was a girl scout with an orer form The Wife - an old girl scout herself - spotted from more than a block away…We thought it was for cookies, but no, it was for nuts and other assorted stuff like that…The Wife ordered some stuff that was chocolate covered and shaped like daisies, while I ordered some whole cashews, which I dearly love.

When we knocked off work Friday night we didn't know what we would be in store for Monday because our truck was being towed back to the branch…Well, Keith called me today and said we are driving to Town A Monday morning to pick one up that someone from Route 21 is driving up.

This means we will have to be on the road by 6am and ol' Sparrow will miss his now-treasured workout, but I will take the opportunity eat really well...I am almost down a notch on my belt and I am highly motivated to make it so I can get down a couple of more notches.
