Iron Bowl Week Recap: Tired and Uninspired

1 Dec , 2015  

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.

23 Nov , 2015  

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!

Week 10 Recap: This was the elimination weekend you were waiting on

9 Nov , 2015  

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:

  • Bama’s statement win over LSU
  • Auburn’s im-moral victory over Texas A&M
  • Clemson, Oklahoma State, Florida…
  • Some surprising hot seat picks
  • A new TOP FOUR

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 8 Recap: Fallout Edition

26 Oct , 2015  

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.

DERP.  Let's make sure ever-body continues to blame the defense, m'kay?  Boom.

Week 7 recap: The Wild, Wild (SEC) West

19 Oct , 2015  

Outside of Leonard Fournette, no one in the SEC is who we thought they were. Inside of Leonard Fournette is a T-800, and it’s only a matter of time before the LSU running game becomes self-aware and initiates a nuclear strike on the entire U.S..

Who’d have thunk that after the halfway point:

  • Ole Miss would have beaten Bama and lost to Memphis?
  • Florida would have been the marquee game for LSU to this point, and in control of the East?
  • Auburn would be feeling hopeful after a 3-point win over Kentucky?
  • Bama’s secondary would be winning them games against spread offenses?

Such is life. Such is college football. Come spend a few minutes in Igno Rant land as we recap all this and more!

Week 6 Recap: Getting drunk on Sunday morning edition

12 Oct , 2015  

Look, we know life can be rough in major college football. Expectations are high, fans are mean, and everyone wants to avoid Clemsoning Richting a game.  Still, you should probably show up for practice on Sunday, especially if you’re the head coach.  Even Chizik and Dubose did that much.

  • Introducing the new “Richt-er Scale” to measure how badly a team performs in relation to its expectations.
  • USC(w) scores high on the Richt-er Scale early in the season
  • Texas players win one for Charlie Strong; South Carolina players put Spurrier closer to retirement
  • Dabo singles Igno Rants out for word choice
  • Bama vs. Arkansas recap

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!

Week 3 Recap: Keep breathing, y’all. We haven’t reached Clemson-level panic yet

20 Sep , 2015  

The unstoppable force from Week 3 was bad, bad football play… from everyone except LSU and Ole Miss, it seems.  We recap this weekend’s action, including:

  • Things to be positive about (this counts as your football therapy for the week)
  • Our Players of the Week
  • Coaches (still) on the hot seat
  • The Top Four Igno Rant teams in the nation
