Fresh Links

Some new links are coming this weekend, I've saved some I've run across, will create a few more categories, and get that going.  Tedious stuff, but that's what we're here for.

I'm about 75% done with "Political Football" and will publish soon.  This weekend we'll look at creating a revised statistics database to put on here.  If we follow through with that, it will be extensive and way too time-consuming, but should shed some new light on how teams really performed last year.  NCAA statistics are flat and flawed, just like baseball statistics.  You have to know either what stats to look at or how to manipulate them in order to get a real picture of what's going on.

This is especially true with college football and all the uneven scheduling that goes on, along with the strange bifurcated conferences (Big Twelve, SEC) that exist.  We'll get into more of that later.

Just know that we might make a run at some more intelligent statistics databases on here, much like baseball's great SABR-styled revolution (read Moneyball by Michael Lewis for a better idea), but on a smaller scale and with far less intelligence.  I'm not a math major, so I'll probably get some corrections along the way from people more savvy in the subject than myself.
