IU Football Finally Beats Michigan!

Monday, October 26th, 2009

This may be the only time in life I ever use this headline, so take it easy, Wolverine fans. Anyway, during yesterday's telecast of the Saints-Dolphins game, Rumors and Rants fan-favorite Dick Stockton brought up a conversation that the announcing crew had with Miami quarterback Chad Henne earlier this week. Stockton noted ...

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 ...

What’s the Beef Between Football and Hockey Players in Michigan?

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Admittedly, we've been sitting on these double pieces of news for awhile. But unless you follow either college hockey, Michigan/Michigan State football or the police blotter very closely, it's likely you haven't delved into this too far. First, let us dispense with the sufficient background information. On the early Sunday morning of ...

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 8 Picks

Friday, October 17th, 2008

Afternoon, all. Okay, okay, so it's not the crack of noon, it's more like one, but at least I'm up. Can't believe I have to wait seven hours before IU plays tonight. All the early games are still close, and Georgia Tech just fumbled, so things aren't looking good so far. ...

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 ...

McD’s Week 3 Picks

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Football season is in full-swing in pretty much the entire Western Hemisphere, and I'm in such a fantastic mood I don't even want to write a pre-amble to this week's picks. Let's just get right to it. I'm all business, baby. Plus, Kansas/USF is on as I'm typing this. so, ...
