Each week at SB Nation the Pac-10 blogs do a Pac-10 Basketball Pick 'Em in which they pick all of the Pac-10 games of the week.
Pac-10 Basketball Pick'Em: Week 1 Open Thread (Updated With Other Blog's Picks) - Building The Dam
Beginning today and running through the end of the season, the Pac-10 SB Nation Blogs will have a Basketball Pick'Em contest ran by Patrick Evans of Arizona Desert Swarm. The plan is to have a open thread in the FanPost section every week to root on Building the Dam's picks, and root against everyone else's.
Pretty cool idea, right?
Well with Oregon State playing Seattle University this week, the conference's bloggers weighed in on that game as well. And all but one blog chose Oregon State to win: SBN's Stanford site, Rule of Tree.
Given that they're currently 10-0 through this week, perhaps they know something the rest don't can Seattle U will help them remain undefeated tonight.
Then again, BuildingTheDam's ConnorOSU wasn't particularly confident about OSU winning this game in his pre-season preview either, noting it as one of their tougher non-conference games and picking the Redhawks to win 67-66.

Their Non-Conference Schedule sets up very nicely, with only three tough games: at Seattle U, at Montana, and at Colorado. Even if the Beavers lose those games, they would enter conference play with eight wins.
That's certainly due respect after last yea's 51-point blowout.
