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) - I'm rubber and you're glue, but if you make fun of me too much I'll leave my job and the rest of the world will see what a jerk you are.

That probably wasn't exactly what was running through the mind of Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, but on the outside that's sure what it looks like.

The hot mess that the Dolphins' locker room has regressed into is just one of the topics we tackle this week.

Jumping subjects, whether you like or hate Northwestern's Wounded Warrior uniforms - or whether you think the pattern is a distressed flag or a bloody one - we drop some meaty tidbits about that, too.

And finally, we'll add one more horn to the raucous parade that is escorting the BCS system out of our lives.

Include your thoughts and disagreements of your own in the comments section below, and look for a new edition of Rantankerous next week.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
