So my team and I experienced something I've never seen in 5-man ranked tonight.

We got into champ select as usual and the bans went as normal. The other team banned Kennen, Shaco, and Sona. We banned Rammus, Fizz, and Ahri. Then we started making picks. Fellicia chose Morgana. I don't remember what they picked. Then we picked Cho and Skarner. This is where it got weird. The screen reset like we'd just reconnected to champ select and started another match. The bans remained and we were prompted to select more bans. Some of the previous ban choices were unavailable (note that Fizz is missing, but Ahri is still there). Fellicia was confused and rebanned Rammus. They banned Morgana (note: our pick from last time). We banned Alistar. They banned Tryn. We banned Ryze. They banned Skarner (another of our picks from last time).

At load screen we all showed as joining the game normally but one player on our team didn't connect until about a minute or two into the match. Most of us experienced severe lag. Due to their team comp, confusion, and connection issues we were basically screwed and they snowballed so hard that I went afk and started working on this post around 14 minutes in.

I don't remember when we noticed their team name but it's sketchy as **** and heavily hints that there was some kind of intentional shenanigans on their end. See here: http://i.imgur.com/pAyj4.jpg

On top of all that the players were rude and harassed us in chat the entire game, and after. http://i.imgur.com/q7fXr.jpg

So, what the actual **** happened here?

Edit: Dear god the internet loves some potential controversy.

I just want to make sure nobody else gets screwed over or confused until this is fixed.

Whether or not the other team is responsible is secondary.
I've been leaning towards the possibility that the team we got paired with just coincidentally had a name that looked really bad in light of the situation. Also they happened to be huge sperglords as well, which didn't help the issue.

Yeah, their name suggests that they found a way to bypass Riot's ban system. The failed to make it seem like an accident and drew attention to themselves. If a Rioter reviews this case they can expect bans due to violating the EULA.
