The sheer weirdness of 2017 college football is a sure sign of the Apocalypse. But not a fiery Armageddon, no, if 5 weeks of this insanity has taught us anything, it’s that the world will end because all the things that we used to count on — gravity, the rising and setting of the sun, Cam Newton will be involved in another controversy — will suddenly stop being true.
At least a few things have been consistent this year:

With 1/3 of the season in the books, Igno Rants has hit mid-season form. Unfortunately, the slate of games for this weekend has not as arguably the best of the bunch starts at 10:30 ET on Friday night. There’s still much to discuss, carry on about, and general ballyhoo so crank up the ol’ podcast Victrola and settle in for a listen.
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.

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!
If you’re not Alabama, you either lost or won a squeaker this weekend. Let Jeremy and Carey take you through how it all breaks down: from NC State’s adoption of the Adam Griffith School of Field Goals to Mark Richt bringing the “big game” mentality to the U.
Let’s see… unranked and coach-less USC whooped up on previously unbeaten Utah, Clemson got Al Golden fired, FSU’s crazy ACC-win streak got done in by a Kick-6, Auburn’s defense is not playing like a Mus-CHAMP, and Bama just plain doesn’t like playing at home.
Yup. Makes sense.
It’s the Third Saturday in October* which means it’s time for the annual Bama/Tennessee hate-fest to kick off. Not that those Orange is the new Camo hillbillies in Knoxville know how to make a rivalry game interesting, amirite?
In this podcast, we have:
