Here at the Igno Rants on College Football, each day is special….but football Saturdays are more specialer. Watching this YouTube video would make this Thanksgiving holiday the very most specialist. So as we inch closer to the Iron Bowl, let’s take an inside look at they guys on game days.
The two-lane blacktop that serves as the only ingress to the College Football Playoffs — that suburban, gated community of college football’s top 1% — is suddenly in a bit of a traffic jam. Typically at this time of year, we wring our hands over the number of unbeaten teams still in contention. And yet, even though Baylor, West Virginia, Nebraska, and Boise State all had their first sad bus ride of the season… things seem even more confused than before.
Yes, we have THE BIG FOUR unbeatens (Bama, Michigan, Clemson, Washington). And if they win out, then this will be the easiest job the CFP Committee has had yet. But…should one or more falter, we then start the process of determining the best one (or two) loss team(s) ready to step in.
We don’t discuss any of that crap in today’s episode, but we will get into civil engineering and traffic faux pas, so buckle up, listen, comment, and share!
Sometimes you just can’t get enough Auburn talk, amiright? The Ignorant Barners is a spinoff podcast for Auburn fans who just haven’t had enough ignorant talk from the Igno Rants on CFB. Join Jeremy, Scott, Pip, and Flippo as they rant and rave about all things Auburn on a weekly show that can normally catch on a Wednesday night lifestream show on YouTube.

Hey, Gus. THIS is how you swap QBs.

This was a great weekend of college football. That is, unless you were an up-and-coming team looking to make a statement (Houston, thanks for being the exception that proves the rule). These teams saw their preseason feel-goods dashed against the cold, wet pavement of reality in week one:
Just to name the big ‘uns. Jeremy and Carey break it all down for you in our big ‘ol Week One Recap show.
(we didn’t bring up numbers in the show, but as of Saturday night, Jeremy was 3-4 on picks, Carey was 5-2)
Leonard Faux-nette, amirite? Just kidding, he’s an amazing athlete and I don’t want him to come run me over like so many Auburn players.
This week, Carey phones in from an undisclosed B1G bunker, where he spent the weekend orchestrating Nebraska’s big win (because he was tired of not getting any bold predictions correct).
So tune in and tune out (that’s what my wife does) as we go over:
This is a big one, y’all, and it could turn out to be the weekend that solidifies all the artificial storylines we like about football:
Auburn has finally clinched the “moral victory” national championship by continuing to improve in their latest loss. Bama got the weekend off just in time to complain about the 2016 SEC schedule.
Plus Miami, Clemson, Georgia, and more!
Autumn is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than with the pumpkin-spice latte drinkers of the podcast kingdom: us! We’re seemingly everywhere and just darn obnoxious. Get your Friday fix as Carey and Jeremy give you their picks for all the weekend’s best action!
You’ll also hear awesome references to fork lifts, asteroids, Meghan Trainor, and Rihanna all here!
Just another week in college football, according to some. Nothing to see here, move along. For the most part, the teams that were supposed to make it to the other side, did. Not all made it unscathed, however.
Jeremy and Carey break it down like a particle board table after a church potluck, with in-depth analysis on all the big games this past weekend, plus:
One weekend of college football in the books, and there are lots of reasons to rejoice. Less so if you’re Stanford, Nebraska, or Penn State, and you might have to just lean on that “W” if you’re a Barner.
Carey & Jeremy take you through the weekend’s best (and worst) and lay it all out for you in small, simple words (cause those are the one’s we can pronunciate).
