Sure, there was Clemson over Louisville and Tennessee trading hail marys with Georgia, but let’s not lose sight of the fact that North Carolina… UNC at Chapel Hill bested Florida State on a last minute 52-yard FG. Ah, football is indeed heaven.
Is it over? Is the Les Miles era finished for real? We had so much fun with the Mad Hatter in Baton Rouge — and then it was gone, like so much grass in the wind.
Anyhow, a bunch of teams won and about half of ’em lost, but Jeremy and Carey pick through the ones that matter and give you the most Igno Rant analysis you’ve ever set ears upon, including:
Look y’all, with so many teams getting embarrassed and not taking care of business, you gotta take the ball of actual winning all the way into the end zone (or, if you’re an Auburn fan, take that moral victory as far as you can).
If you want to know the definitive Igno Rant analysis of the Auburn and Bama games, then you’ve stumbled upon the right web page.
Look, there just aren’t that many teams dealing with their tweener teams (cupcakes what sit ‘tween big games) like they should. Auburn, Ohio State, and Michigan did it this week. Bama and LSU weren’t ever in danger, but have work to do. Clemson wuz straight up scared. And Georgia? Dang, man, you need a ride home or something?
Still, bigger props go out to Arkansas, Tennessee, and MAC officiating for really taking care of business.
Listen to all the recap havoc and get set: Week 3 is gonna be a fun ‘un!
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)
Ain’t it a friggin’ shame? Where is the joy and verve that should come with beating your biggest rival? Well, apart from El Tractorcito and the redemption of Adam Griffith, there wasn’t much to this Iron Bowl to be overly excited about. Both teams played about as sloppy as the turf conditions.
Still, there’s plenty to discuss, as the circus-season of college football kicked into high gear with the firing of Mark Richt, plus Jeremy and Carey battle it out over how to properly pick a Top Four.
Everybody was having a regular ol’ conniption worrying about all those undefeated teams. You know what? Things tend to sort themselves out for the most part. And for whoever’s left at the end of the season, we have our own version of the Hogwarts Sorting Hat: The CFP Committee. (Alabama is definitely Gryffindor)
Bama and Auburn dispatched their respective foes with ease (and Auburn’s not used to getting things easy OUTSIDE the classroom).
Check it out, and most importantly, start sending us your best Auburn or Alabama jokes. Be sure to tag them #IBHateWeek!
As wild and crazy as this weekend was in college football, you won’t believe what happens at the end of this here podcast. A day late, but exactly the right amount of dollars (zero), we bring to your kitchen table a veritable smorgasbord of harvest-time football analysis. All the calories, none of the nutrition. We’re the Nutella of podcasts!
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:
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!
