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

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 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 ...

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. ...

It Turns Out Washington-Notre Dame Means Very Little

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

There was a time when this game seemed like it was going to matter. But when Notre Dame travels allll the way out to Seattle this weekend to face Washington, well, most people aren't going to care. Here's the thing. Notre Dame unceremoniously fired Washington head coach Tyrone Willingham four years ...

McD’s Week 7 Picks

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

Morning. I managed to sleep in a little today, though the Indiana game starts shortly and I'm very, very nervous. It's gorgeous outside, the leaves are changing, and I'm loving every second of it. We're starting big right off the bat with the IU game, Minny at Illinois, and some ...

Notre Dame Football Players Relate Their Favorite Taunts

Friday, October 10th, 2008

We all know that any respectable sports fan knows a good taunt when they hear it. We're not talking about those run of the mill taunts you hear all the time, but real, original stuff. The kind that when you hear it at the ballpark or the stadium you laugh ...

This Senator Now Knows the Criminality of Northern Indiana

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

We wonder if U.S. Senator Mel Martinez, R-Fla., will ever make another trip to South Bend to see his nephew punt after this heinous incident. Only time will tell if the wounds will heal. Last weekend when Martinez drove from Chicago to South Bend to attend the ND-Stanford game and watch ...
