The end of the season is quickly approaching and there are precious few weeks left to make a move in the Big Ten Bloggers Pick'em. Your prognosticators didn't have such a great week (except me, HA!) but BSD did go 4-2. This week presents a few challenges so anything's possible. As always though, we have an open thread for the Thursday night game. Lots of sports tonight Pittsburgh and Philly take the ice tonight, the NFL is on and we have North Carolina and #8 Virginia Tech tonight at 8:00 PM on ESPN. Stats and pics after the jump...
Last Week's Results
Everyone missed Ohio State's flub against Purdue and some of us were not too high on Penn State given all of the... unpleasantness of last week. I picked Nebraska and was so sure Penn State was going to come into the game unfocused that I bet against them. Thanks to the 3-point spread, I lost. Lesson learned. Move along...

Sparty is on a collision coarse with the inaugural B1G championship and Illinois is about to get bludgeoned to death. Nebraska - Michigan is a toss up and is Minnesota still playing for anything? I lost money on Penn State last week, I won't make the same mistake this week. They impressed me with the ability to stay focused even in horrible conditions.

The team is split on the OSU-PSU game and amazingly bully on Michigan. Everyone likes Wisconsin and Northwestern (except Kyle) so not much will change in the standings.
Check back in for the open thread tonight at 8:00.
