    Probably Utah State's Andersen. He was DC at Utah when they BCS busted, dunno if that counts.

    I don't know if there is another option other than Memphis. Tigers appears to be the only mascot name that has 5 FBS members. Bulldogs is close, as is Eagles (Georgia Southern will be the 5th in 2014).

    UT San Antonio's coach is Larry Coker.

    Yeah, he's the first one. Was just taking a guess at the other.

    I don't think that should count.

    Especially considering he is not at USU anymore. Another interesting trivia: USU plays at the Romney Stadium. (named after some relative of Mitt)

    Kansas has to be close too. Where do you go to get the records?

    And my guess for the next few is Kansas. They're due to come up soon. 0-12 last year.

    That's where I usually go for simple questions.

    I am mistaken then. I didn't realize how long their suckitude has been. I'll agree with you on Colorado, but I'm still answering Kansas for the next one prior to the question coming out to prove my utter superiority, unless the author is related to Charlie Weiss.

    Yeah, I caught that after I posted. Kansas lost 37 games in the last four years. Averaging more than 9 losses per season at a major school is simply incompetent.

    My prediction of Kansas being next on the list will simply prove my superiority (famous 3GT last words).:wink:

    Finally got one. Colorado in at #115.

    GT1992, you're up. I am actually going to google this one now.

    Also, the opening barrage against Colorado in this article makes me want to go find replays of all their games and watch them for the schadenfreude. Anyone know where I can get Colorado replays? :lol:

    EDIT: Looks like KU does have at least one 4x NBA all star, albeit from 1952. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clyde_Lovellette

    EDIT 2: And have a high rated prospective NBA draft pick in Ben McLemore. Dang, I think you got it.

    UNLV? Were they bad last season?

    to answer my own question...yes...yes they were...and the season before that...and the season before that.

    Stickin' to my answer, even though research on the 4-time all-star Forward front is leaving a lot to be desired...

    -EDIT-

    never mind, I found him and I'm right. Kansas will have to wait.

    What's the next one? How can a 1-11 Kansas team not be up?

    Keep this one going.

    North Texas was 113 and here's the hint for 112.

    "— Who is No. 112? This team's coach served as an assistant on teams that reached a BCS bowl and the Super Bowl."

    I'm going Kansas again. I don't know if Weiss was an assistant for a college team in a BCS game, but he did coach for the Patriots.

    nm wrong guess for my first one.

    I'm thinking Weis as well but don't see the connection to the BCS as an assistant.

    I know, but he took Notre Dame as a head coach. I'm changing to Hawaii. Norm Chow.
