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 a creation of the Raycom Digital Hub staff and the only suitable description for the arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones, which until now have never been recorded.

(RNN) - Though we agree on nothing, we're both overjoyed that the BCS will be buried and hopefully forgotten in a manner of months.

Until then, we can debate who deserves their current BCS rankings - especially Oregon at No. 2.

While Florida State is beating teams so soundly that we actually forget their names, Oregon is beating people so badly you forget scoring 55 points a game is not normal.

Also this week:

How important are cheerleaders to athletic competitions, and what are the wackiest ways a World Series could end?

Include your thoughts and disagreements of your own in the comments section below, and look for new editions of Rantankerous in the coming weeks.

    With offenses becoming increasingly explosive, plugging the holes is more imperative than ever. It's no surprise Alabama and Florida top the list, but the rest of the rankings may surprise you.
