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 ...

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 ...

Week Two College Football Roundup

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Even though Indiana football is depressingly bad, Purdue is still just as bad. And that's awesome. Make no mistake, Indiana would have lost to Rice too, and it might not have been close enough for a blocked field goal to make a difference. But damn is it fun to watch Purdue ...

Bowl Preview: Little Caesar’s Bowl

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

Florida International (6-6) vs. Toledo (8-4) (-1.5) Games like this are what make bowl season so awesome. Toledo hasn't been to a bowl in five years, and this is the first bowl appearance EVER for Florida International...and they get to play in Detroit the day after Christmas. Their fans are showing ...

Bowl Preview: Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl

Friday, December 24th, 2010

(24) Hawai'i (10-3) vs. Tulsa (9-3) (+10.5) How about a little recognition for the other other team to win the Western Athletic Conference this year, along with Nevada and Boise State? It didn't look like we'd ever hear from Hawai'i again when June Jones left after the 2007 season. It seemed crazy ...

Bowl Preview: Maaco Bowl Las Vegas

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

(19) Utah (10-2) vs. (10) Boise State (11-1) (-17) So this is where the 2010 season ends for Boise State? After all that pain and sacrifice and the gut-wrenching loss to Nevada, the Broncos get to go to...Las Vegas? That's a pretty freaking sweet consolation prize. Can't imagine why they wouldn't ...
