BSD's Big Ten Challenge/Thursday Night Open thread Week 2

Such is the life of a Pittsburgh fan! LOL

Well week 1 is in the books and most of the Big Ten results went just as expected. There was one little hiccup that EVERYONE missed, but that's in the past and we'll not mention which game it was. *cough* *cough* .... *crickets**crickets*

Before we move on though we have a very interesting game tonight when our good friends the Pittsburgh Panthers travel to take on the Cincinnati Beerguts Bearcats tonight at 8:00 pm on ESPN. Of course if you were living in a cave last weekend you missed the fact that the Panthers got destroyed by the Penguins of Youngstown State 31-17. If Pitt losing to an FCS school by two touchdowns doesn't feed you all the schadenfreude you need, seeing them start 0-2 should make you down right giddy.

If the game goes as well as we all expect the .gifs and LOL's in the comments section will probably bring SB Nation's server to it's knees. You probably don't want to miss this one.

Oh you wily BSD readers! You moved yourself into a 4-way tie for 1st with Devon, Dan, and Tim. Ben, as was the case last year, went out on some limbs and got hurt in the process. But it's still very early and anything can happen, especially as we approach the B1G season.

Redundant standings are redundant. Forgive the non-sorted-ness of that table, Excel was fighting with me and for this week I let her win. Yes all Microsoft products are female, they have to be as unpredictable as they are.

A lot of agreement on Ohio State, Sparty, and Wisconsin. Illinois and Northwestern, not so much. The ballsy pick of the day goes to Dan for picking Purdue over Notre Shame. I thought long and hard about that but I couldn't bring myself to call for the upset this early in the season after the beatdown Notre Dame put on last week.

So on to your picks oh co-leaders:

My Ballot Box
New Hampshire @ Minnesota




Penn State @ Virginia




UCF @ Ohio State




Air Force @ Michigan




Indiana @ Massachusetts




Iowa State @ Iowa
