The Ten Worst Coaches In College Football

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...
