Indiana’s NCAA Tournament Resume

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Since we're less than a week away from Selection Sunday and everyone is checking and re-checking tournament resumes and figuring out who is in and who is out right now, we figured we'd give our alma mater's current tournament resume. Needless to say, it's been a tough season for the Indiana ...

You Are Advised Not to Watch the Big Ten Tournament

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Basketball has a certain reputation in the Big Ten: The slow, grinding pace and physical play doesn't exactly inspire people to watch how beautiful a well-played basketball game can be. Instead we have to suffer through games like Penn State's 38-33 win at Illinois a few weeks back. Watching two minutes ...

At Least We’re Not DePaul

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

Indiana's basketball season continues falling to depths that have only been previously measured in the Marianas Trench, with the latest indignity coming on Wednesday night with the Hoosiers' first home loss to Northwestern in 41 years. In fact, the Wildcats had never beaten IU at Assembly Hall, with the last ...

Wow, Iowa Must Really Suck

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Since I know you were all glued to the non-stop action that happens only on the Big Ten Network, you obviously know by now that the Indiana Hoosiers are no longer winless in the Big Ten this year. Yes, after the Hoosiers' dramatic 68-60 win over Iowa last night the ...

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 ...
