Quantcast
I have 31 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Exclamation IIC's Bottom 10 College Football Poll

    IIC's Bottom 10 College Football Teams 2006

    This thread was inspired by Louetta who suggested I consider College Sports in my upcoming College oriented site...Great idea Louetta...Thanks...Now, Anyone can come up with their TOP 10...But what about the BOTTOM 10???...Sure, there are a few...In fact for you 40-80 yr. olds you might remember Steve Harvey's syndicated Bottom 10 about 25 yrs ago...I actually have met him numerous times as we had some common friends back then...He and I did not get along very well as... Ski would say: "We both had BITING personalities"...But he is a witty guy and he writes some syndicated columns for newspapers and probably makes a lot more than I do...Even though he makes some of that crap up from what I understand.

    So here it is...The “Creme de la Crap” for this year's college football season...Why some of these schools even field a team is beyond me!!!...



    1. BUFFALO BULLS…When you think of crummy teams, you just can’t help thinking of the Bulls. Only 10-69 since joining Division 1-A in 1999, it appears that they will be lucky to even win a game this year. New coach Turner Gil, the ex-Nebraska star would be well advised to take to the field himself if the Bulls are to win a game.

    Actually, the season may be over for the Bulls if they lose their first game to #2 Temple although Vegas oddsmakers are putting the Over/Under on that game at 1. Then comes Auburn on September 23rd where the Over/Under is 100.



    2. TEMPLE OWLS…Arguably the worst college team over the past two decades, coming off a perfect 0-11 record last year and a new coach makes the Owls one of the worst bets in the country. Giving up over 45 points per game in 2005…The only saving grace is that they only have 3 returning starters on defense.

    Here’s a quote from the Golden Boy…New coach Bobby Golden: "I'm excited about leading this program as we transition into the Mid-American Conference. I'm confident in the commitment to excellence that currently exists at Temple University. We have the best university, the best city and the best facilities in the MAC. The future looks bright on North Broad Street." Too bad they have the worst football team or do they?...We’ll find out on August 31st when they play Buffalo.



    3. KENT STATE GOLDEN FLASHES…The only thing good about this outfit is their nickname…Averaging a paltry 45yds rushing per game last year I don’t see Kent St. scoring a whole lot of points this year…One thing’s for sure though…The Mid America Conference sux.



    4. NEW MEXICO STATE AGGIES…Well, 0-12 last year in his debut season…I’d pretty much say Head Coach Hal Mumme’s job is on the line if he can’t scramble at least a few wins this season. Geez, the Aggies allowed 45 QB sacks last year…What’s the record???



    5. SYRACUSE ORANGE…When did these guys change their name from Orangemen to simply Orange? What kind a name is that?...One thing’s for sure…You won’t find these jokers in the Orange Bowl. Wait…where does conference foe U. of So. Florida play their home games???...Might be tough to beat last year’s 1-10 record.

    Default The Worst of the Worst Continued



    6. UNLV RUNNIN’ REBELS…Coming off a miserable 2-9 season losing their last 5 games the only thing the Rebels will be RUNNIN’ after is their opponent’s wide receivers as they sprint towards the goal line.



    7. FLORIDA ATLANTIC OWLS…Heck, I didn’t even know Fla. Atl. had a team…Fortunately for the Owls they are in a weak conference…Unfortunately for the Owls they are also a “Schedule Filler” team for the likes of Clemson, Kansas St., Oklahoma St. and So. Carolina…It’s a pretty safe bet that the Owls will enter the Conference season at 0-4.



    8. RICE OWLS…There’s something about Owls and football not mixing very well. QB’s Chase Clement and Joel Armstrong are both back this year…But that’s not very good news as both completed less than 43% of their passes last year. Clement averaged 0.5 yds per carry… 32 yds in 65 attempts…But the thing is one of those carries was for 25 yds when one of the cheerleaders tops fell off and distracted the opposing tacklers. Perhaps they should give Frosh QB John Shepard from El Dorado, AR a shot???…However, El Dorado’s only claim to fame is that there is a big toxic waste dump there…So there’s a good chance that Shepard’s arm might just fall off by mid-season.



    9. IDAHO VANDALS…It’s gonna take more than Dennis Erickson to turn this program around. They’ve only averaged 2.2 victories a season the last 5 years, so if they win 3 this year maybe the fans will consider the season a success? I’m hoping that the BIG GAME against New Mexico State will be on TV on October 7th.



    10. NORTH TEXAS MEAN GREEN…Gotta love their nickname…But that’s about it. Coming off a miserable 2-9 season, The MEAN GREEN travel to Austin to play Texas in their season opener on September 2nd…That should be a bloodbath with 58 Freshman on the roster.

    Honorable Mention: DUKE BLUE DEVILS, MISSISSSIPPI STATE BULLDOGS, KENTUCKY WILDCATS, TULANE GREEN WAVE.

    Doug,
    I'm going to monitor your picks to see if they're really the worst. This is probably one case where shorting all of them will work 95% of the time.

    Yeah...I was thinking that you'd be a good one to do that...I'd like to make a weekly update...But I'm not going to...Let's see at the end of the season...Thx...Doug(IIC)

    PS...They are only from Division 1-A(119 colleges)...I'm sure there are some smaller schools that are a lot worse

    Doug,
    I was thinking of a way to evaluate your bottom 10. How about this.
    One win and the team is in trouble. Two wins will put team on IIC probation . Three victories and it's adios from the bottom 10. Likewise , particularly bad performances equal bonus points. Loss by 25, +1 , 35= +2 , 45= +3 , 55= +5, 65 points or more = +10 . This should separate the horrific from the merely bad. I'm really looking forward to the season. Watch some team come from out of nowhere to stink up the joint. Anyone can make the top 10 , only the very worst sink to the depths of the IIC Bottom 10.

    Let's make this another game. I'll be glad to keep the books if you guys want to do this. Make a portfolio of your 10 worst schools from #1 to #10. When would be a good date for a deadline? And we could keep the thread right where we are. Some affirmation please. I think the only rules would be that there are no rules. Division 1-A schools only. Worst record or records wins.

    Doug is already in. I'm in. I'm sure Billyjoe would be in. Anyone else.

    By the way Doug. That guy Golden is from the Jersey shore conference right here by where I live. I've seen him play and he was pretty good and a leader. I bet he pulls those owls up by their bootstraps.

    And Turner Gil...or is it Gill???...Lead the ALLTIME Best Team to a loss at Miami in the early 80's...If my memory serves me correct

    Re UNLV football, your pick is probably wrong. Take the over on number of wins this season. Talented transfer QB on the field this year.
