McD’s Bowl Picks Part Four

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

Updated through Chick-fil-A Bowl Record: 8-6, 4-10 ATS Tuesday, December 30, 2008 4:30pm ET Roady's Humanitarian Bowl Maryland (7-5) at Nevada (7-5) (-2) I swear this spread is a misprint. I have to admit I haven't taken Nevada very seriously most of this year. They're a 7-5 WAC team. Forgive me if I don't genuflect every ...

McD’s Bowl Picks Part One

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Right off the bat (what does that phrase even mean, by the way?) I'm telling you this: there is absolutely no way I'm risking my .500 record against the spread with unpredictable bowl games between random schools from the Sun Belt conferene and C-USA. Nope. Ain't happening. .500 against the ...

McD’s Week 14 Picks: Rivalry Week Part 2

Wednesday, November 26th, 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 ...

McD’s Week 9 Picks

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Happy weekend, everyone. It's a Rumors and Rants road trip this week, so we'll have to see if people in the south are okay with dorks with computers in their sports bars or not. Should be interesting. Congress created the BCS! Okay, not really. But take a look at these rankings: 1. Georgia 2. ...
