College football rankings: Colorado drops in The Bottom 25, makes coaching change after losing winnable game


At The Bottom 25, coaches get fired. This happens every year, and every year, earlier and earlier. When it happens in Wisconsin with a coach who has never had a loss and has never been ranked in the Bottom 25 (Wisconsin didn’t make it in the rankings even after starting from 1st to 3rd last year) , you know it can happen to anyone.

This week, Colorado Coach Carl Dorrell was one of those whoalthough his dismissal was not a surprise. Dorrell was a difficult mercenary from the start. The Buffalo lost Mel Tucker to Michigan State in February 2020. Finding a coach in February is never perfect, and when you do it right before the start of a global pandemic, it gets even more difficult.

Dorrell was the best of the boring bunch, and while things went well that 2020 COVID season, the Buffs are back on the ground. They are 0-5 this season and have done nothing good (as evidenced by HERE as well as HERE). This is a place where Buffs have been too often for a program with its history and potential to be good again. Let’s hope the next coach in Boulder, Colorado, whoever he is, can keep the Buffs out of the bottom 25 forever.

No longer ranked: No. 24, Nevada, No. 21, Arkansas, No. 20, UTEP, No. 17, Buffalo.
