What’s Really Going On At USC

Monday, January 11th, 2010

I've read so many misguided reports all over the internet about USC, its coaching search and why Pete Carroll departed. I rarely spout anything about USC on this site as far as inside information goes but I've been so frustrated by the misinformation coming out of ESPN, Yahoo! and others ...

The Pete Carroll Game

Sunday, December 27th, 2009

I think I'm going to start calling games like the USC/BC Emerald Bowl a "Pete Carroll Game." What's a Pete Carroll game, you ask? It's a cousin to the various "Mike Riley Games" (full post about that coming some day), only the Pete Carroll Game is a close game that ...

Gregg Doyel Is Bad At Journalism

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Gregg Doyel writes for CBSSports.com and his columns are - to say the least - usually over-the-top, lack proper insight and, frankly, suck. He's the guy who said that College Basketball as we know it is now over because John Calipari is at Kentucky. Yep, completely over. Teams like North ...

Taylor Mays To Return To USC

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

According to Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News, junior safety - and sure top 20 pick - Taylor Mays will return to USC for his senior season. Wolf reportedly spoke with USC head coach Pete Carroll last night, who confirmed that Mays, senior defensive back Josh Pinkard and ...

Oh Rick, Where Will It End?

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

A bomb dropped in Los Angeles yesterday where it appears Rick Neuheisel's penchant for being one of the dirtiest players in the game has reared it's ugly head. Again. Frankly, I'm shocked. According to the Los Angeles Times, USC Linebackers coach (and UCLA alum) Ken Norton Jr. was informed by several ...

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. ...

McD’s Week Six Picks

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

Er, morning everyone. Just got up after a long night and I sit down on my couch to find my beloved Hoosiers down 7 to Minny in the second quarter. You know, because fast spread teams like IU have trouble playing in domes. Our offense lends itself much more to ...
