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.
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:
Such is life. Such is college football. Come spend a few minutes in Igno Rant land as we recap all this and more!
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.
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:
All this, AND MORE, in this week’s recap!
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:
Just another week in college football, according to some. Nothing to see here, move along. For the most part, the teams that were supposed to make it to the other side, did. Not all made it unscathed, however.
Jeremy and Carey break it down like a particle board table after a church potluck, with in-depth analysis on all the big games this past weekend, plus:
One weekend of college football in the books, and there are lots of reasons to rejoice. Less so if you’re Stanford, Nebraska, or Penn State, and you might have to just lean on that “W” if you’re a Barner.
Carey & Jeremy take you through the weekend’s best (and worst) and lay it all out for you in small, simple words (cause those are the one’s we can pronunciate).
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.
Down by twelve after 35 minutes of game time, Blake Sims pulled out his can o’ spinach and turned the formerly-hapless Tide into a team that finally played like national title contenders, thoroughly dominating Auburn for the next 22:22 of the third and fourth quarters.
Details inside, plus:
Auburn adds a touchdown and a two-point conversion in garbage time to cut the Alabama lead to 55-44. 20 seconds to go.

Well, we manage to make it through yet another podcast, this time face-to-face across Jeremy’s kitchen table. Despite the disappointing nature of this weekend’s games, we’re pretty stoked about the start of Iron Bowl Week.
