Week 10 Recap: The Schedules of Destiny

7 Nov , 2016  

With Week 10 in the books, and the second CFP rankings coming out tomorrow, it seems clear that five teams have a clear path to the playoffs by winning out: Bama, Clemson, Washington, and Michigan / Ohio State. The case for a two-loss SEC-champ Auburn to get in is there, but it’s also a lot less clear (how would the committee evaluate 2-loss Auburn against Louisville, especially with the rest of the SEC starting to fall apart and bringing down Auburn’s SOR?).

Time will tell, of course, and there’s much in the way of football to be played that could upset the Apple (Cup) cart. Wisconsin could finally find its identity and win the B1G CG. Washington could falter down the home stretch.

But for now, let’s bask in the glory of our respective wins, over our respective foes, with the respective perspective to be gained from each, including:

  • Some gloating from Carey about being correct on how both the Bama and Auburn games would play out.
  • Does Coach Orcherwahn deserve a shot at the big job?
  • If you can have moral victories after a loss, can you have moral losses with a win (ahem, cough cough Vandy cough)?

Listen to all this AND MORE in this week’s Igno Rant Weekly Recap. Then share!  Then vote on Tuesday, cry in the shower over the state of our political system, buy some ice cream and eat it with Jameson and Bailey’s, and –finally!– share the podcast one more time.

Week 8 Recap: They are who some of us thought they were

24 Oct , 2016  

Few things in life are as satisfying as being RIGHT (one of those is winning 4 titles in 7 years).  Jeremy believed in his beloved Tigers, and they showed up in a big way against the buffet warriors of Arkansas. They have turned things around and become a legit top-25 team.  Happy?

Auburn gave Bert more runs than a late-night trip to Taco Bell.

Auburn gave Bert more runs than a late-night trip to Taco Bell.

  • Houston falls again (Jeremy called it)
  • Ole Miss ain’t all that (Jeremy knew it pre-season)
  • Ohio State falls, finally (didn’t Jeremy once ask “who have they played?”)
  • Oregon is in free fall (Jeremy had a dream once that was a metaphor for that happening).

Also: Bama overwhelmed another top-10 opponent.  Yawn, I guess.

Week 9 recap: digging deep and finding reasons for hope

3 Nov , 2015  

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!

Week 5 Recap is anyone’s guess

5 Oct , 2015  

If you believe you have a solid handle on exactly what’s going on in college football, may we suggest an MRI funded by your ObamaCare? To sum up:

  • Ohio State and Michigan State struggled with lesser opponents,
  • UCLA fell,
  • Ole Miss fell,
  • Auburn finally looked somewhat competent against the Green Horned Tiger Sharks of San Jose State, and
  • Bama – finally an underdog after over half a decade – beat the snot out of the perennially-rebuilding Bulldogs.

All this, AND MORE, in this week’s recap!
