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 Bowl Picks Part Five: Rose Bowl and Orange Bowl Edition

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

Updated through Orange Bowl Record: 12-10, 8-14 ATS Thursday, January 1, 2009 11:00am ET Outback Bowl South Carolina (7-5) at Iowa (8-4) (-4) How is it that Ricky Stanzi is the best quarterback in this game? That's got to be the first time all season anyone can say that about Iowa's quarterback. I'm perplexed. What happened ...

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 ...

McD’s Week 11 Picks

Friday, November 7th, 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.

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 ...

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. ...
