Old Spice Classic: Day 1 thoughts, Day 2 predictions

Friday, November 29th, 2013

Ah, Thanksgiving weekend, a time for food, family, friends, football and corny alliterations college basketball. Yours truly has the privilege of being on site to cover the Old Spice Classic, an eight-team tournament at the HP Field House located at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL. Day ...

Jarrett Lee Making Les Miles Look Dumb All Over

Friday, August 10th, 2012

While watching the embarrassment that was this year's BCS Championship Game, it seemed obvious to anyone in attendance that at some point LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson would have to get pulled. He was just SOOOOO BAD. Like worse than anyone who has ever quarterbacked the Bears bad. Yet somewhat surprisingly, he ...

Jordan Jefferson Continues To Be Bad At Everything

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Maybe a stint in the slammer wouldn't have been such a bad thing for Jordan Jefferson after all. At least he'd still have his dignity. The latest disgrace for the former LSU quarterback came at the NFL Combine, where he received the lowest grade of any player at the event with ...

NCAA Tournament Thoughts: Day One, Early Session

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 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 ...
