The Year of The Loser

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Way back in '08, we here at Rumors and Rants proclaimed it the Greatest Year in Sports History. I know what you are thinking -- big deal. So did Sports Illustrated and ESPN and everyone else who makes widespread proclamations. Only we made the call in July. Basically, when something's up, ...

Notre Dame is On Its Way to Being a Big East Casualty

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

It is not a good time for the Notre Dame basketball team right now. Gone are the happy-go-lucky days of making many 3-pointers. Those moments have been replaced with long faces and quiet locker rooms. As a man named Heath Ledger would say if he were alive and wearing lots of ...

Erin Andrews Stole My Seat (and I Couldn’t Do a Thing About It)

Monday, January 26th, 2009

There were a few things I promised myself I would never do when I started blogging for Rumors and Rants in earnest. Those were: 1.) I will never write an Erin Andrews post. 2.) I will not give any clues as to who I actually am. 3.) I will never write an Erin ...

A Very Inappropriate Christmas

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

I've been out of the sports loop lately with my recent celebrations of Christmas Eve, Christmas and Boxing Day, but it has come to my attention that I missed some comic gold, if you will, during the Christmas Eve telecast of the Hawaii Bowl. While comedy would be a fitting description ...

McD’s Bowl Picks Part Two

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

I don't know what it means when my record against the spread is exactly the same as my overall record. Does that mean my picks were just that dead wrong for the first set of bowl games? Don't answer that. Bowl Record: 2-3, 2-3 ATS Tuesday, December 23, 2008 8pm ET San Diego County ...

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

OK, so I took this photo on the floor after the championship game of the EA Sports Maui Invitational last week. Now, I'm not one to judge, but is it me, or is Luke Harangody a little cross-eyed? Now don't get me wrong, Gody is a heck of a college basketball ...

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 ...

Let’s Ponder Notre Dame Football at Present and Moving Onward

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

Let it be known from the get-go that I'm going to try and make it so this doesn't turn into a Charlie Weis bashing extravaganza. Really, I'm going to try and challenge myself a little more. It's just too easy right now. I mean, the Irish did lose to Syracuse last ...
