McD’s Bowl Picks Part Three

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

Record: 3-4, 2-5 ATS Updated through Alamo Bowl Friday, December 26, 2008 7:30pm ET Motor City Bowl Florida Atlantic (6-6) at Central Michigan (8-4) (-6) After the Troy debacle, I'm sure as shit not going with another Sun Belt Conference team against another small conference team. I'm not saying the uh, uh Owls, that's it, the ...

The NFC North: Somebody’s Gotta Win the Thing, Right?

Monday, November 17th, 2008

One look at the standings in the NFC North will tell you a lot. There's a three-way tie between the Packers, Bears and Vikings atop the division at a very mediocre 5-5. Oh, and then there's the Lions in the cellar at 0-10. Let's not forget about our friends from ...

McD’s Week 12 Picks

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Record through Week 11: 119-48, 81-83-5 ATS Damn, under .500 again. That overall record makes me feel a little better though. Playing .710 ball just picking the winners isn't too bad though, given the unpredictability of college football and several other typical excuses. Time for the home stretch.... 12pm EST Northwestern (7-3) at ...

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 ...

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 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 ...
