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) - We're on opposite ends of the spectrum about who should take home the Heisman Trophy, but there is one thing we both agree on - the other person is wrong.

The most Heisman finalists in a decade will fly to New York this weekend, a perfect complement to the sendoff party for the BCS system.

Although there are six candidates, the choice for us is clear - Jameis Winston or AJ McCarron.

Brian tries to convince George that it's worth his time to watch any bowls besides the Rose Bowl and BCS Championship Game. Here's a hint: BT needs to work on his persuasion skills.

And in case you haven't noticed, the voting process for the National Baseball Hall of Fame is a hot mess of insanity and good ol' boy partiality.

Once we finish applauding for all the cheaters who are already in Cooperstown, let's hear it for Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, and all the other cheaters who may never get in.

Include arguments of your own in the comments section below.
