There were a lot of games we thought would be good, but weren’t (Clemson/Ohio State, Auburn/Oklahoma, LSU/Louisville). And some that were unexpectedly good (USC/Penn State, Idaho/Colorado State).
And then there was Brent Musburger lauding, then defending, then backpedaling over Oklahoma’s Mixon.
Brent Musburger should have avoided talking about the Joe Mixon incident and just stuck with objectifying women.

Your two Igno Rant hosts talk all the bowl action, plus recap the Bama and Auburn games!
Statements were made all across the playoff landscape this past weekend, and the latest episode of Igno Rants will take you through it all:
And while Florida State, TCU, and Baylor all had significant wins (I’m being gracious here, Iowa State fans), perhaps the biggest statement of all was made by the Big XII Conference Commish, Bob Bowlsby:
“‘One True Champion’ is really about everybody playing everybody. That’s the right way to do it. We believe that playing everyone every year is the right way to determine a champion, even if ends in a tie.”
How’d that work out for ya, Bob? You TWO TRUE CHAMPIONS both got shown the way to the “other bowl games of note” category. Congratulations on continuing a long, proud tradition of screwing up in the Big XII.
Ah, cupcakes. There’s nothing like a grossly overmatched opponent to really get you excited about [INSERT YOUR TEAM HERE]. That is, unless your team happens to be South Carolina or Nebraska. Sorry, fellas.
In celebration of Jeremy’s wedding anniversary on Sunday, we recorded this podcast after midnight on Saturday, and it’s obvious in the audio quality. For that we apologize. The quality of the analysis is also horrible, but that’s your own fault. After all, fool you twice…
