TheBaker Tackles The Worst NCAA Bubble In History

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

First off, I want to start by saying anyone who advocates expanding the NCAA Tournament field from 65 teams to 96 teams is a moron. This isn't little league. We don't all get participation ribbons. And I know there were opponents to the expansion to 64 back when it was introduced, ...

Hey, the Big Ten Had to Start Somewhere

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

We finally did it!!!!!!!!!! Yes, we're really that happy, with all the exclamation points and everything, about the Big Ten's first victory in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Seriously, we are that EFFING pumped. It's been a long time coming. Like, 11 years in the making. So what if the Big Ten is ...

Well, He Got His Title

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Now that Tyler Hansbrough and his North Carolina Tar Heels won the NCAA Championship last night, an interesting discussion is about to ensue. Just where does Hansbrough fall in the history of all-time great college basketball players? I think I've got a pretty good handle on the situation. Love him or hate ...

McD’s Week 15 Picks: Championship Week

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Happy Championship Week to everyone. Just want to point out Utah, Boise State and TCU are all ranked ahead of the Big East champion (Cincinnati) and whoever the ACC champion will be. But do any of those four teams get to go to BCS games? One: Utah, with an outside shot ...

McD’s Week 14 Picks: Rivalry Week Part 2

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

It's just plain wrong Boise State and Ball State can go undefeated, win their respective conferences, and not get into the BCS. What makes it ironic is it'll be another undefeated non-BCS team (Utah) that's taking their place. Once again, we've learned exactly what makes the BCS so shitty. Instead of ...

McD’s Week 13 Picks: Rivalry Week Part One

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

It's McD's week 13 picks extravaganza! This week is positively loaded down with fantastic games to the point that I may not shower until 11pmĀ eastern Saturday night. My record isn't what it should be (read: shitty) against the spread, so I'm going for broke. The sheer number of picks I'm making this ...

McD’s Week 12 Picks

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Record through Week 11: 119-48, 81-83-5 ATS Damn, under .500 again. That overall record makes me feel a little better though. Playing .710 ball just picking the winners isn't too bad though, given the unpredictability of college football and several other typical excuses. Time for the home stretch.... 12pm EST Northwestern (7-3) at ...

McD’s Week 11 Picks

Friday, November 7th, 2008

Record through Week 10: 107-45, 74-73-5 ATS Fond Memories for McD and Booter Game of the Week San Diego State (1-8) at (15) Brigham Young (8-1) (-36) SDSU football was my initial foray into college football. They were my first live college game, my first rivalry (though it's not really a rivalry), and ...
