    Don't believe the hype. The Tigers are not that much worse than the Crimson Tide, and Alabama is not that much better, no matter what anyone says.

Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the epic arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones, which until now have never been recorded.

(RNN) - The SEC Championship is Saturday, so of course, we're going to ignore that and talk about the dying art of classical ballet.

Yeah, right. You'd be hard pressed to find two other teams that were the butt of more jokes or that suffered more misfortune than the 2012 versions of Auburn and Missouri.

Now look at them. One year after combining for two SEC wins, they are among the country's elite and fighting for a chance to reach the last national title game under the BCS system.

And oh by the way, some other teams in the Big Ten and ACC are scrapping it out to get the same golden ring - or crystal football. Whatever.

This is a football fan's dream that seems to have no end in sight. Now, about that ballet thing…

Include arguments of your own in the comments section below.
