Well, Pitt sure laid an egg. Somebody should tell them they are allowed to play defense.

While losing to Western Michigan at home right after beating TN on the road would be quintessentially Pitt, I like us this week. The game I am really worried about is GT. We should go into that game 4-0 with a showdown in Blacksburg looming the next week. It would be just like us to overlook GT and lose looking ahead to the Hokies.

I was wrong. This is the same Pitt team we always were.

After the early games we have JRSec is leading with 5 correct. Right behind him is GTS, Statefan, and myself with 4. 6 players have 3 correct.

Heading into this evening's games, nobody is running away with this.

1st: GTS, zibby and Statefan are tied with 6.
2nd: JRSec, Hokie Mark, random asian guy, schmolik, copycat, and myself are tied with 5
3rd: Wahoowa84, ken d, and XLance are tied with 4.

5 games TBD.

I would've been way up for the weekend had I not cancelled my WM to win bet. It payed 6 to 1.

WVU <-- I wanted to pick VT to win, but I feel like the ACC isn't allowed to have nice things. And this is the most obvious #goacc left on the Hokie schedule.
Miami
Western MI <-- Same for Pitt. I think they'll win, but win ugly.
BC
@Clemson <-- Can Clemson outscore GT by a TD a quarter? LMAO YES.
WF
NW
UVA
ND

BYU
Cinci
CO
Charlotte
PSU

Tie Breaker: Guess the number of points scored by Syracuse and NC ST in their games against Albany and Furman respectively.

38 for Cuse, 28 for NCST.

I bet almost comically against the ACC ... and finished 3rd.

All I know is what should have been a big game in Raleigh has been rendered nearly meaningless. I didn't expect for Clemson to contribute that outcome like the have but Dabo needs to find a QB. How a West Coast product fits in and leads Clemson is beyond me.

RE: ACC Pick 'Em Contest Week 3
I typed the results out and thought I had posted them. I awarded the rep points but I don't see my results post, so here we go.

Drum roll please.

We had a tie for first place between zibby and Statefan with 9 correct each. there were 107 points scored by the two ACC against FBS opponents. So congrats to Statefan with his threepeat victory. His tie breaker was 75 vs zibby's 72. To add insult to injury, he did not submit his Friday pick in time, so he won with one game tied behind his back.

Congratulation to zibby for his second place finish.

Third Place: A tie among,
GTS, Hokie Mark, and schmolik

All rep points should be awarded. If any are missing, please let me know.

Wow. I thought finishing third three weeks in a row was impressive, first three weeks in a row? Way to go Statefan! And zibby was 2nd three weeks in a row!

I'm beginning to think they know something I don't know. Congrats, guys.

Don't be too impressed (at least in my case)... the ones I'm "sure" of, it seems like I'm always wrong. My third place finishes have been due to random chance.
