Sounds Interesting. Thanks for setting it up. I posted on gomeangreen.com as well.

Is anyone running a CUSA College Football Pick'Em? I'm interested.

RE: Season "Stock" Contest
SHORT 40 shares of UTEP (100)
BUY 2 shares of FAU (19)
BUY 2 shares of Marshall (17)
BUY 10 shares of UNT (75)
BUY 11 shares of MTSU (66)
BUY 15 shares of Charlotte (22.5)

UTEP - Other than Northern Arizona who do they beat?
FAU - With probable championship game and bowl game tough to Short
Marshall - See FAU
UNT - Just don't see how they lose 5 games with that offense and a slightly improved defense. Key inner division games and FAU at home (Undefeated at home last year)
MTSU - They will sneak up on FAU or Marshall. Healthy Stockstill and one of the the top CUSA defenses will make them "sexy" again.
Charlotte - 3 wins is doable with their schedule.

Short Marshall 100 shares = 850 shares

850+100= 950 total shares

950/6.5(USM) = 146

I buy 146 shares of USM. Tell me if my math is off.

Its not personal Marshall, just business. Tough to short any team - the banker made some good numbers. I just felt best about shorting y'all at 8.5, and it makes it more fun to short someone. Could also only buy 15 shares of USM otherwise (most under valued).

All my points towards Marshall.

Any money left over donate it to by rags to wipe up the tears of Thundering Herd opponents.

bumping to remind people that haven't entered yet. Remember that Rice kicks off a week earlier than everyone else.

Ok, to truly gamble for big win or big loss, here I go:

Short FAU - 25 Shares (+237.50)
Buy UTEP - 28 Shares (-70.00)
Buy Rice - 25 Shares (-75.00)
Buy UTSA - 35 Shares (-192.50)

If my math is correct that should even out.

The game – each person who elects to play will start with 100 points. The points will be used to buy shares in CUSA teams of their choice. The cost of the “stock” in each team is listed below. You will accumulate points based on the total number of wins by the team you hold stock in times the number of shares you own. So, if you put all your money in one team and their cost was 5 points per share, you will acquire 20 shares. If they win 6 games you end the season with 120 points, if they end with 4 wins you end with 80 points.

The object is to find teams you believe are over or under valued based on the initial price of the “stock”. If a team is assigned a value of 4, but you believe they will win 8 games, that would obviously be a stock to buy. You will also have the opportunity to “short” a team’s stock. However, you can only short one team AND NO MORE THAN 100 SHARES. Shorting is essentially selling a stock and then hoping to buy it back later for less money. In this case, if you short one share of a team that has a value of 5, you sell that stock and now have 105 to buy other stocks. Keep in mind though that each game won by a team you shorted deducts 1 point from your total, times the number of shares shorted.

You will not be able to buy or sell stock once the season starts, you live with your initial purchases. The win total will include the regular season, the championship game and any post season games. Keep in mind that the teams that make the conference championship will play 14 games, bowl teams will play 13, other teams 12 (additionally, Rice has an extra game this year).

Please post your entry in a standard format so my data input is a little easier. Below is an example.

SHORT – 5 shares FAU
BUY – 8 shares USM
Buy – 4 shares FIU
Buy – 10 shares UTEP

etc.

Basically put any short position first. Remember, when doing the math you have 100 points to spend PLUS the value of any shorted shares. You can only buy whole shares, no fractional shares. So if a stock is 7.5 and you only have 7 left, you have to buy something else.

Team Price/Shr
FAU 9.50
Marshall 8.50
UAB 8.00
UNT 7.50
ODU 7.50
La Tech 7.00
USM 6.50
Middle 6.00
UTSA 5.50
FIU 5.50
WKU 4.00
Rice 3.00
UTEP 2.50
Charlotte 2.50


Open for any questions.

If this is a contest, what's the winner win, and how is the winner selected? I would assume percentage gain would be the best indicator of success.

Edited to add: Just read some of the other pages of this thread and see additional rules have been decided upon. If those newly decided upon rules aren't listed in the original post, they need to be.
