Welcome back to the B1G Stock Market Game! I've been busy, so you'll have to skip over a lot less BS than usual this week.

The Rules

  1. Start with an initial investment equal to the average of all current investors. This week, that’s 463 Delaney Dollars ($463DD).
  2. Select team stocks to buy.
  3. After the week’s games, sell, hold, and/or buy for the next week.
  4. Max number of any one team’s shares that you can own is 50.

Team stock value comes from Teamrankings.com. The value of each team is the inverse of their current rating (out of 130 FBS teams), so team #2 costs $129, #6 costs $125, #129 costs $2.

What Teams Should I Invest In?

Buy low, sell high. Or vice versa. Buy shares of your own team, or feel all greasy by buying shares of your rival. While nobody can perfectly predict The Formula, team ratings are pretty much based on their game results, their opponents, and their opponents’ opponents.

Some players diversify, and others go heavy on one stock. You’ll find your niche. If you don’t like the dartboard method, you may want to check out Dead Read’s B1G Stock Report.

This Week

Illinois and Indiana made the two appreciable gains, and Northwestern is terribad. Fairly modest increases in portfolios this week, but still beats a heavy loss.

The opening bell has rung, here are this week’s stock prices:

Illinois 68; Indiana 104; Iowa 116; Maryland 67; Michigan 120; Michigan State 112; Minnesota 110; Nebraska 75; Northwestern 64; Ohio State 130; Penn State 127; Purdue 72; rutger 12; Wisconsin 125
