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:

  • Jeremy Johnson-level turnovers doomed Bama
  • Leonard Fournette was the unstoppable force. Some immovable object blocked Johnson’s forward pass.
  • 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

Week 2 Recap: Stop beating on Johnson

13 Sep , 2015  

Jeremy Johnson, QB, Auburn

In this file photo, Johnson appears fully erect. No word on the cause of his poor ball handling to date.

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:

  • Should Auburn bench Jeremy Johnson if he comes out poorly against LSU?
  • Will Alabama ever make a field goal again?
  • Our players of the week, and
  • A very controversial hot seat prediction!

Week 1 recap: Take timeout to rejoice!

6 Sep , 2015  

Good luck with that tackle...

Good luck with that tackle…

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).

Championship Week Recap: Mouthin’ Off

8 Dec , 2014  

Statements were made all across the playoff landscape this past weekend, and the latest episode of Igno Rants will take you through it all:

  • Ohio State let everyone know we had been undervaluing their team all year, and also that Urban Meyer is a pretty decent coach.
  • Oregon left a horse’s head in Rich Rodriguez’s bed, exacting some potent revenge for the Duck’s only loss on the season
  • Alabama sent a message to all the fans and sportswriters who had been so ready to declare the dynasty over.

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.

Iron Bowl Recap: 22 minutes of domination

1 Dec , 2014  

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:

  • Agreement on Nick Marshall’s stellar performance
  • Disagreement on who gets the blame/credit for Auburn’s red-zone woes
  • The Great Garbage Time Debate of 2014
