Week 16: On the run again.

Week 15 (Belated).

We’ve been busy here at Fund HQ, and while our picks have been dutifully recorded over on Twitter, we haven’t been updating the blog.  Week 15 was a 1-1 week for us:

 

Week 14: Thursday.

Congratulations to the Arizona Cardinals for making the playoffs.

And Congratulations to the Vikings for comfortably beating the spread.  The Fund goes to 14-10-1 and will probably have additional action on Sunday.

Week 13: Ouch.

For week 13, we made these somewhat misguided picks:

…and proceeded to go 0-3.  This is the worst single-week performance in the history of the Fund (including all of its previous incarnations)

That brings the season record to 13-10-1, a 2.0 unit profit.

As of the end of the Monday night game on 12/7:

The Coaches Fund has earned $200 on a $550 investment: 36.36%
The No-Ruin Fund has earned $200 on $2,530 risked: 7.91%
The S&P 500 has earned $38.98 on a $550 investment: 7.09%

Week 12: Wrapup!

The Fund went 2-1 this week, and both Sunday games brought excitement well into the 4th quarter.

That brings the season record to 13-7-1, a 5.3 unit profit.

As of the end of the Sunday night game on 11/29:

The Coaches Fund has earned $530 on a $550 investment: 96.36%
The No-Ruin Fund has earned $530 on $2,200 risked: 24.1%
The S&P 500 has earned $42.40 on a $550 investment: 7.71%

Week 12: Running up the score.

Week 12: Post Thanksgiving Redemption?

After that offensive disaster in Green Bay, the Fund hopes for some redemption.

Thanksgiving: We take [the] offense!

As one new crop of American college students comes home for Thanksgiving with dates intended to offend their parents and another crop has a heated conversation on a topic that could only offend someone who frequently and uncritically asserts that safe spaces and public squares are the same, the Fired Coaches believe that this is truly a holiday that’s just plain meant for offense.

So we’re going to take the over in Green Bay.

Week 11: A low-stress 2-0 week.

The Fund went 2-0 this week, as both Bay Area teams did their part.

That brings the season record to 11-6-1, a 4.4 unit profit.

As of the end of the Sunday night game on 11/22:

  • The Coaches Fund has earned $440 on a $550 investment: 80%
  • The No-Ruin Fund has earned $440 on $1,980 risked: 22.2%
  • The S&P 500 has earned $41.69 on a $550 investment: 7.58%

Week 11: Raiders, Lions and Offense? Oh, My.
