College Football,Weekly Recap

Week 1 Recap: Ain’t no 34 point lead like an Aggie 34 point lead

7 Sep , 2017  

Whelp, after week one we still have 50% of CFB teams among the ranks of the unbeaten. Queue the mass hysteria for how to pick the Top 4!

Already in mid-season form, Jeremy waxes excitedly about the fabulous upsides of Auburn’s big win over Georgia Southern, while Carey laments the many miscues in Bama’s victory over FSU.

We also have our first coach on the Hot Seat (you get three guesses who and the first two guesses don’t count, as Papa Igno Rant always says).

College Football,Trash Talk

Mine is bigger than yours

18 Aug , 2016  

by Ant Pruitt

We all know that college football prides itself on traditions and fanfare. Another thing beloved fans enjoy bragging on are stadiums. “Hey Billy, your stadium sucks! It’s so tiny!” Yeah, the college football fan suffers from a bizarre inferiority complex. Sadly, it really shouldn’t have to worry about the “mine is bigger than yours” argument but it continues to fall into that dark hole.

But Ant, size matters!

Uh, no. Stadium size doesn’t matter, folks. Don’t get me wrong, there’s something magical about walking into a stadium with 80-100,000 people on one accord wanting their team to beat the crap outta the visiting team. Doak Campbell stadium holding over 90,000 drunken Seminole fans can be pretty intimidating on any given Saturday. Except for that time the Baptist Demon Deacons of tiny private school Wake Forest University flew in for a match. Totin’ scripture and a misdirection-based offense, Wake Forest crucified Florida State to the tune of 30-0. Oh did I mention that Wake Forest plays in front of about 30 fans each weekend at home? Ok, I exaggerated. It’s more like 40. (Just kidding) I wonder what the faithful ‘Noles fans were saying about their glorious stadium after that loss.

Speaking of Wake Forest, the adequate BB&T Stadium has also caused a few headaches for “big boy schools” visiting them for a game. I remember it like it was yesterday. Tommy Bowden was attempting to cool off the hot seat as Clemson Tigers head football coach. Playing a nationally televised game on Thursday night was a great opportunity to right the ship and get back into good graces of the Clemson boosters. Riley Skinner and Wake Forest ran Clemson off of BB&T Field without breaking sweat. Coach Bowden returned back to the upstate of South Carolina and found a UHaul truck in his driveway.

What’s your favorite stadium to attend a college football game? Is it just your favorite team’s or do you enjoy other stadiums?  It’s ok if you enjoy others. No one here is going to call you a traitor. . .yet.

Week 10 Pickcast: the weekend of the stereotypes

6 Nov , 2015  

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:

  • Can Mark Richt do just enough to hang on one more year?
  • Will Clemson be able to avoid Clemsoning?
  • Auburn or Texas A&M: which team can redeem a season of disappointment?
  • LSU vs. Alabama is once again the Game of the Year (in the SEC, at least)
