Every week, ESPN updates its "Bottom 10" rankings. After Week 3, there is a big-name program right in the middle of this ignominious list.

Florida State, which sits at 1-2 under new head coach Willie Taggart, has made its "Bottom 10" debut. The Seminoles got whupped by Syracuse and are only a late comeback against Samford from being 0-fer the season.

There is already a GoFundMe to pay for Taggart's dismissal. Things are bad down in Tallahassee.

Meanwhile, Rutgers is the only other Power 5 program on this week's list, and with good reason. The Scarlet Knights got destroyed at Kansas last Saturday. Yes, that Kansas, the one that went 3-33 in the previous three seasons.

Here is the full ESPN "Bottom 10" after Week 3:

  1. New Mexico State
  2. UTEP
  3. San Jose State
  4. Central Michigan
  5. Florida State
  6. Old Dominion
  7. UTSA
  8. Texas State
  9. Rutgers
  10. Miami (Ohio)

Fortunately for the Seminoles and Scarlet Knights, these rankings change weekly. Florida, UNC and Oregon State have already made appearances and dropped out, so there is hope.

However, both these programs need some wins, and fast.
