The SEC made history this week, becoming the first conference to place four teams inside the Associated Press' top five. Thing is, all of those teams came from the same division. Yes, the SEC West is well-represented in the Top 25. Do you agree with the rankings?

Fans can be, erm, passionate. One might use that word to describe Phyllis from Mulga, Alabama, whose rant Monday on "The Paul Finebaum Show" is one for the radio wing at the Hall of Sports Anger.

Some background: After Alabama's loss to Auburn in 2013, Colin Cowherd went on Finebaum's program and criticized the state of the Crimson Tide program. Enter Phyllis, who made a not-so-nice pun off Cowherd's name.

Following the Crimson Tide's loss to the Mississippi Rebels on Saturday, Finebaum guested on Cowherd's show -- and the latter again said some strong words about Nick Saban's team ...

Cowherd then replayed some of Phyllis' greatest hits from last season.

Not long after, when Cowherd's show gave way to Finebaum's, Phyllis returned:

Brilliant.

Although it does bring up the question: Why all the anger, Bama fans? Your school has like a billion championships in the past 10 years.

Call back when you support a team that has been around 45 years and has never won a single title.

(Actually, call back anyway. This is great radio.)

Florida State struggled a bit in a win over North Carolina State on Saturday, making it two straight weeks in which the nation's top-ranked team didn't look dominant. The Seminoles remained No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25; would they get your vote?
