McD’s Week Eight College Football Picks

Friday, October 21st, 2011

The only picks by an actual Indiana grad who prefers Indiana football to Indiana basketball. It's an acquired taste. What I'm watching this week (with my dad edition): 12 pm - Indiana at Iowa - I guess so my Hawkeye-fan dad can watch with me and make snarky comments the whole time. ...

Week Seven College Football Roundup: Oh, The Bee-Manity!

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Illinois, Georgia Tech, Michigan and Baylor all lost on Saturday. God, Georgia Tech?!? They were playing Virginia! The Perfect Offense couldn't lose to Virginia! Innocence...slowly being...ripped...away. Three of those four schools were handed their first loss of the year. Baylor lost their second, but this was the one that took them ...

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 ...

What I'm watching this Saturday: 12 pm - Penn State at Indiana until it's a blowout in the second quarter, then probably Aggies/Razorbacks with a side of Air Force/Navy 3:30 pm - Baylor/Kansas State ...

The End Of The Great Recruiter? Locksley Fired From New Mexico

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Three years ago, Mike Locksley was hired to turn around New Mexico's increasingly depressing football program. Long-time head coach Rocky Long had managed a record somewhere near .500 from 1998 to 2008, but he was fired after a four-win 2008 season despite going 9-4 the year before. Three years later, Locksley ...

Week Four College Football Roundup: Who’s No. 1?

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Oklahoma and LSU both won on Saturday night, Oklahoma is 3-0, LSU is 4-0 and now both can say they've been No. 1 in the polls this season. As a reward for beating three ranked teams in four games, the Tigers get to be No. 1 in the AP's poll ...
