Barred From Seeing A Great Finish

Monday, September 14th, 2009

So I took a trip to Chicago on Saturday morning, riding the Amtrak from Indianapolis to Chi-Town's Union Station for a weekend of Windy City Madness. The plan was to meet our resident legal expert "Booter" early Saturday, find an appropriate sports bar and watch football all day, culminating in ...

The Rumors And Rants National Championship

Friday, January 16th, 2009

Good evening, I'm Bob Costas (pictured at actual size) and welcome to our presentation of the Rumors and Rants National Collegiate Football Championship Trophy (and half-assed homage to KSK since they won the best sports blog award and are officially Rumors and Rants' blog-daddies for another year). The votes have ...

Taylor Mays To Return To USC

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

According to Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News, junior safety - and sure top 20 pick - Taylor Mays will return to USC for his senior season. Wolf reportedly spoke with USC head coach Pete Carroll last night, who confirmed that Mays, senior defensive back Josh Pinkard and ...

Oh Rick, Where Will It End?

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

A bomb dropped in Los Angeles yesterday where it appears Rick Neuheisel's penchant for being one of the dirtiest players in the game has reared it's ugly head. Again. Frankly, I'm shocked. According to the Los Angeles Times, USC Linebackers coach (and UCLA alum) Ken Norton Jr. was informed by several ...

McD’s Week 15 Picks: Championship Week

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Happy Championship Week to everyone. Just want to point out Utah, Boise State and TCU are all ranked ahead of the Big East champion (Cincinnati) and whoever the ACC champion will be. But do any of those four teams get to go to BCS games? One: Utah, with an outside shot ...

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 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. They were my first live college game, my first rivalry (though it's not really a rivalry), and ...

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 ...
