NCAA Tournament Thoughts: Day One, Early Session

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

I guess you could call this a running diary, but it's really more just my thoughts as the games progress. There will be very little rhyme or reason to the updates, they'll just arrive as things come into the cosmic skull jelly that rests between my ears. Enjoy. Games on right ...

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 ...

2008 Maui Invitational Preview

Monday, November 24th, 2008

As many of you know, I'm a lucky bastard. Every year in late November, I head to Maui with my family to spend Thanksgiving on the beach. But along with relaxing in paradise, we also make sure to attend the EA Sports Maui Invitational, which is easily the nation's best ...

McD’s Week 13 Picks: Rivalry Week Part One

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 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. ...
