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.
We hope you enjoyed the feast that was Week One of college football, because this weekend is slim pickins (not fun Blazing Saddles Pickens, either, but BJ and the Bear type Slim that you only watch because the corporate stooges at the networks wait until later and later in the fall before airing any new material, and — dadgumit — you’re just not going to spend THIS DAY trying to finish the last “Divergent” book).
Jeremy and Carey give you the lows-down on

Well, for all our hand-wringing each season about how many teams “deserve” to be in the MNC game, it almost always sorts itself out before the bowl selections are made. This year is shaping up the same, as Oregon and Baylor called “uncle” in their respective campaigns.
