TheBaker Tackles The Worst NCAA Bubble In History

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

First off, I want to start by saying anyone who advocates expanding the NCAA Tournament field from 65 teams to 96 teams is a moron. This isn't little league. We don't all get participation ribbons. And I know there were opponents to the expansion to 64 back when it was introduced, ...

This One Goes Out To Rick

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Dear Casey, I have a friend named Rick who recently got into some hot water for something he did awhile ago. He met a girl, it got serious, and then they broke things off. Not the first time it's ever happened. Anyway, she recently came back into his life, and it hasn't ...

Finally Some Good News For Michigan

Monday, March 30th, 2009

It's taken quite some time but the state of Michigan finally got some good news. As I'm sure you've heard, Sunday afternoon the Michigan State Spartans knocked off Louisville to win the NCAA Tournament's Midwest Region and head to the Final Four in Detroit. In the process, the Spartans made ...

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 ...

Hunter Cantwell Thinks the Heinz Field Turf Isn’t Very Nice

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

One would think that as a college quarterback for a mediocre team in a mediocre conference, you would be happy to play in a National Football League venue. Not so fast says Louisville signal caller Hunter Cantwell. He and his Cardinals play Pitt this weekend at the confluence of the Allegheny ...

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. ...

2007 FedEx Orange Bowl Preview: Root For Wake, Bet On Louisville

Monday, January 1st, 2007

Is there any reason to root for Louisville in this game unless you're a Cards fan? Wake is this season's biggest surprise (with the possible exception of Rutgers), especially because they win without really doing anything. It seems like every team they play is suddenly worse in every facet of ...
