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 ...

Let’s Ponder Notre Dame Football at Present and Moving Onward

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

Let it be known from the get-go that I'm going to try and make it so this doesn't turn into a Charlie Weis bashing extravaganza. Really, I'm going to try and challenge myself a little more. It's just too easy right now. I mean, the Irish did lose to Syracuse last ...

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 ...

The Most Important Game Ever…

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 ...

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 ...

McD’s Week 10 Picks

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Record through week nine: 96-40, 65-66-5 ATS 12pm ET West Virginia (5-2) at (25) UConn (6-2) (+3.5) I feel terrible for UConn. They really did have a shot at something special, but they're just not the same without their quarterback. Hence their being home dogs against an unranked team. Worse for them, West ...
