San Diego State Straight Up Robbed Ball State (Allegedly)

Monday, December 15th, 2008

"Sources" have told ESPN's Joe Schad that Ball State head coach Brady Hoke is going to be leaving the school to get another head coaching opportunity. Pretty much everyone could see this coming. Hoke's Cardinals went 12-1 this season, were undefeated until the MAC championship game, and had Nate Davis, ...

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 ...

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

...in the history of Ball State football is tonight. Okay, so Letterman's alma mater isn't exactly a powerhouse, but how often does Ball State at Central Michigan have BCS implications? I can tell you without looking it up: about as often as Clay Aiken and Lance Bass go cruising for chicks. In ...

Time for the home stretch.... 12pm EST Northwestern (7-3) at ...

A Melancholy Tribute to Dante Love

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Late last week we went out on a limb and urged you to watch the Ball State-Indiana football game Saturday night. It didn't turn out to be as entertaining as we thought it'd be. Instead, we walked away a little nauseated. The aim of this blog is always to be funny ...

McD’s Week 4 Picks

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

Football season is screaming by and I'm already wishing it would slow down. I'm convinced the reason football is so popular in America is because it's violent (duh), and the season goes by really, really fast. There's eight months of off-season and only four months of football per year. No ...

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

We already know. You think you're too cool to even consider caring about this particular football game on this particular Saturday. Fine. If that's the way you want to be, fine. But we're here to tell you that while you're salivating over Georgia-Arizona State, Florida-Tennessee, LSU-Auburn, Wake Forest-Florida State, Oregon-Boise State ...
