Perhaps Indiana Can Still Make this Game Watchable

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Today could be a nightmare. Usually there are few things better for the writers of this blog than a little Indiana-Purdue rivalry, especially this time of year. That's because basketball season is the time where Hoosiers get revenge for a normally embarrassing football loss. Not so this year. Since Kelvin Sampson pillaged and burned the Indiana program ...

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 11pm 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

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. ...

McD’s Week Six Picks

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

Er, morning everyone. Just got up after a long night and I sit down on my couch to find my beloved Hoosiers down 7 to Minny in the second quarter. You know, because fast spread teams like IU have trouble playing in domes. Our offense lends itself much more to ...

McD’s Week Five Picks

It's 9am ET and for some insane reason I'm up and ready to go. Damnit. The games don't kick off ...

McD’s Week 4 Picks

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

Football season is screaming by and I'm already wishing it would slow down. I'm convinced the reason football is so popular in America is because it's violent (duh), and the season goes by really, really fast. There's eight months of off-season and only four months of football per year. No ...
