USC tops Arizona in first game after Lane Kiffin firing

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Who would have thought that bringing back cookies, opening up practices and adding some fun to football would turn things around quickly at USC? That's exactly what interim head coach Ed Orgeron has done and it showed Thursday night as the Trojans topped Pac-12 foe Arizona 38-31 in the first ...

College basketball: Who will be the last unbeaten standing?

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

I wasn't even a twinkle in my father's eye in 1976. But the year is one of my favorites. And it's not because it's the year which produced three of my all-time favorite movies ("Rocky," "All The President's Men" and "Midway"). The year 1976 is known for one thing - at ...

USC Trojans: Could Kiffin be fired?

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

I know, I know, it's such a knee-jerk thing to say, and normally this is a rhetorical device in which I would set about disproving that this is a knee-jerk thing to say. Instead, I'll just embrace it. The USC 39-36 loss to Arizona on Saturday was nothing short of ...

McD’s Week 12 College Football Picks

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

What I'm watching: 8:45 am - ESPN3 replay of Oklahoma State/Iowa State because I think I'm getting pranked by some one. No way did OSU lose to ISU. Unless....Oh, yeah, they really ARE Oklahoma State, so yeah that actually makes sense that they would blow their perfect season in Ames, IA ...

UCLA May Want Take-Backs

Friday, October 21st, 2011

UCLA sent out an e-mail to its potential football recruits (at least we assume it was sent to multiple recruits) reminding them to tune in to the Bruins game at Arizona on Thursday night. Ooo. Bad call. As the above tweet by potential recruit Bryce Treggs indicates, that did not go well. Not ...

McD’s Week Four College Football Picks

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

  What I'm watching on Saturday: 12 pm - San Diego State at Michigan: We'll see if SDSU can handle Denard Robinson or not. If French literature has taught me anything, it's that revenge is a great motivating factor. Then again, a lot of the SDSU players probably have positive memories of ...

McD’s Week Three College Football Picks

Friday, September 16th, 2011

What I'm watching this weekend (and notice how I'm not watching Indiana this week because I'm boycotting any game in which we play a 1-AA squad): 12 pm ET - Don't bother with the noon games this week unless you're an alumni. I'm thinking I'll take a nap. Oh hey, DVR'd ...
