Of all the Power-5 schools, there 4 that wear black and gold. Recent history has shown all 4 are, for the most part, bottom-dwellers. I hope that sometime in the near future they find their way to the top for the sake of their schools and fanbases! The last 5 seasons for these schools (2010-2014) - record, conference record, bowls:

Colorado Buffaloes: 15-46, 6-38, no bowls
Purdue Boilermakers: 21-41, 10-30, 2 bowls (W 2011 Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl, L 2012 Heart of Dallas Bowl)
Vanderbilt Commodores*: 29-35, 12-28, (L 2011 Liberty Bowl, W 2012 Music City Bowl, W 2013 BBVA Compass Bowl)
Wake Forest Demon Deacons: 21-40, 12-28, (L 2011 Music City Bowl)
*NOTE: Vanderbilt had 2 anomaly years at 9-4 (conference 5-3,4-4) under James Franklin. Their previous years show those 2 seasons were out of the ordinary.*

Black and gold doesn't seem to be helping anyone. In the Group of 5 and Independents, only Army, Central Florida, Idaho, Appalachian St, and Southern Miss where a combination of black and gold - the latter 2 more of a yellow.

Central Florida has had great seasons including a BCS win but this season is turning into a bust. Idaho is...bad. Army is a team I'd love to rise back up to the level of Navy or even Air Force. Appalachian St just recently moved to FBS. Southern Miss was a very good team until a few years ago.

As the phrase in statistics goes, "correlation doesn't equal causation." I'm having a hard time believing that one right about now...

That is true. I should've eliminated all black/yellow schools and stuck with black/gold.
