Every week, ESPN updates its “Bottom 10” rankings. It is quite likely that we've never seen one of these lists look quite like it does this week.

Of the 10 entries in this collection of sadness, eight of them are Power 5 teams and one is an entire division from a major conference. It has been a rough first month for many Power 5 programs.

Nebraska, which is off to an 0-3 start, holds down the top spot this week. Right behind them is another 0-3 team, UCLA.

Both programs made splashy coaching hires this offseason, but it might take some time before Scott Frost and Chip Kelly get things going at their new schools.

Here is the full ESPN “Bottom 10” after Week 4:

  1. Nebraska
  2. UCLA
  3. Arkansas
  4. Rutgers
  5. #GoACC Coastal
  6. Tennessee
  7. Purdue
  8. Oregon State
  9. Florida State
  10. UTEP

Of course, some of these teams are bound to get off of this list soon. The rankings change each week.

However, some are destined for long stays in the "Bottom 10" and long seasons in general.
