McD’s Week Seven College Football Picks

Friday, October 14th, 2011

What I'm watching Saturday: 12 pm: Baylor/Texas A&M - I know I'm supposed to be a Big Ten honk, being an Indiana grad and all, but after I watch the first quarter of the IU/Wisky game and the Hoosiers somehow give up 42 unanswered points again, I'm done with the B1G ...

Indiana At Wisconsin: Not In The Face!

Friday, October 14th, 2011

In 2010, the Hoosiers' road trip to Madison ended in an 83-20 beating of historical proportions. This is the game most who follow Indiana football (all five of us!) point to as the reason Bill Lynch was fired at season's end, despite beating rival Purdue in overtime. I maintain it ...

Week Three College Football Roundup

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

College football in the state of Indiana is just fine, thank you. You can shut up if you're about to say that Notre Dame, Indiana, and Purdue only beat one FBS team between them on Saturday. They're still 3-0 on the weekend, f**kers. And yes, I went back on my word ...

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 ...
