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 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. ...

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 ...

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 ...
