UCLA's search for a head football coach has continued fruitlessly this week as the school has already been turned down by Boise State's Chris Petersen, Houston's Kevin Sumlin and Miami's Al Golden.

McD’s Week 11 College Football Picks

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

What I'm watching: 12 pm: Flipping between Nebraska/Penn State for the train-wreck-watching and Okie State/Texas Tech for the O-fence. 3:30 pm: TCU/Boise State - At least, until Boise pulls away.

Insert McCoy Pun Here: Texas 49, UCLA 20

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Texas solved its quarterback problem in their road win over UCLA by putting in Case McCoy and a little bit of David Ash. McCoy is former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy's younger brother in case you've never heard of ESPN, the AP, or any other sports media outlet. McCoy et al. were ...
