BSD's Big Ten Challenge/Thursday Night Open thread Week 10

Fans of BSD needed armor last week - Patrick Smith

Winners and losers of this week's Big Ten Challenge

Last week was brutal for BSD fans both on the field and off the field; there weren't too many correct picks. I personally had a bad week, it was my worst week results-wise but it was my worst Open Thread post. The poll got all hosed up when the post published and I incorrectly named the Thursday night game. Bad news for me then but good news for me now because of the miracle of copy & paste: Tonight we get two ACC teams sitting at 4-4 when Virginia Tech heads down to Miami (of the Florida variety) to take on the Hurricanes. This should be a good one so stop on by to talk shop while the games on.

It was nice of the two teams to have bye weeks last week so I didn't even have to go in and change the records. The game starts at 7:30 on ESPN by the way.

Like I said... brutal. Only two prognosticators had winning records. Let's just kill the memory of last week's game... Hell let's just kill off the memory of last weekend with alcohol and never speak of it again.

Cari, Dan and I are playing leapfrog, we jumped over her last week and she returns the favor this week (KEEP YOUR MINDS OUT OF THE GUTTER PEOPLE!). Other than that, there was little movement in the standings.

This Week's Picks

Devon Michigan Ohio State Iowa Nebraska Penn State
Jared Michigan Ohio State Indiana Nebraska Penn State

Dan Michigan Ohio State Iowa Nebraska Penn State
Jeff Michigan Ohio State Iowa Nebraska Penn State
Tim Aydin Michigan Ohio State Indiana Nebraska Penn State

Nick Michigan Ohio State Iowa Nebraska Penn State

There was a lot of movement last week but that ain't gonna be the case this week, the only major disagreement is on Iowa/Indiana. Everyone else is pretty rock solid, so the standings aren't going to change much.

On to your choices (HOPEFULLY, the right poll shows this week):

My Ballot Box
Michigan @ Minnesota




Illinois @ Ohio State




Iowa @ Indiana




Nebraska @ Michigan State




Penn State @ Purdue
