McD’s College Football Week Two Picks

Friday, September 9th, 2011

I honestly couldn't find a game I care about previewing in depth this week. Not for a lack of good games, just none of them have a hook or anything interesting happening. The potential conference meltdown has sucked all the fun out of this week. Plus it's time for a ...

College Football Roundup Week One

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

(5) Boise State spanks (19) Georgia 35-21 The first thing I thought of watching Boise systematically destroy Georgia in the second half of Saturday's game is how much like the 2005 USC Trojans the Broncos look.

USF 23, Notre Dame 20: Notre Dame Needs Some Holtzball

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

In the wake of South Florida's 23-20 win at Notre Dame Saturday, it sure feels like the storm that delayed the game twice for a total of nearly three hours is actually still hovering over South Bend. How's that for a hacky lede, eh? Brian Kelly's Fighting Irish were truly awful ...

Bowl Preview: Hyundai Sun Bowl

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Notre Dame (7-5) vs. Miami (FL) (7-5) (-3) Brian Kelly himself has said that no team begins their season aiming for the Sun Bowl. So why does it exist? What's the point of this and other bowl games that feature nothing but teams that are disappointed to be there? It sure ...

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

8:22 am - Watching the North London derby whilst simultaneously indoctrinating my son into the world of soccer and hoping Booter doesn't assault any Tottenham fans. 8:25 am - For the sixth year in a row, I'm hoping there's a spinal surgeon, a female fugitive, a fat lottery winner, two Koreans, ...

Notre Dame Upsets Utah, Brian Kelly Safe, Fans Disappointed

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

No matter what you think of Utah, that was a stunning upset by Notre Dame. Playing with freshman quarterback Tommy Rees, without  running back Armando Allen, and with what might be worst defense in college football history were it not for Michigan, the Irish still scored 28 points and held ...
