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.
Be sure to send us your best jokes, riffs, and rants via Twitter, Facebook, on the website, or the Rant Line (26-26-0-RANT-1)!
There was a whole mess a’hurtin’ going on around college football this weekend, including:
Also big laughs pointed toward Arizona State for taking on Oregon’s yearly choke, Notre Dame for proving all the haters correct, and TCU for nearly giving Kansas a reason to hope.
A lot of strange things happened this weekend:
But even more strange is this:
But the strangest by far is that you’ve found your way to Igno Rants on College Football’s website. You might as well listen to our podcast, now.
Jeremy makes an excellent point in this here podcast, that lucky breaks occur all throughout a game, and just because one happened near the end of a close game doesn’t mean the team that one did so by luck.
That is a very well-reasoned and articulate point.
I would like to counter with:
This week’s podcast features:
Plus Election Day campaign ads for our favorite college coaches!
It was a good week for both Bama and Auburn, playoff-wise, as they both advanced with the dubyas and got a little help from LSU. Not that we’re going to let each other feel good about it. Listen to our snarkiest podcast yet, as we recap:
Plus a surprise coach on the hotseat, not-so-surprising Top 4, and the coveted POTW!
