My goal for this site is simple: to develop a Beyond The Box Score-style community for college football. (In the below posts, you'll see occasional "BTBS" references; my initial intentions with the stat work was so meager that I simply referred to it as "Beyond the Box Score" posts.) Uncovering and developing the metrics I have developed to date have only increased my enjoyment of a sport I already loved, and I want to take advantage of SBN's beautiful community-building platform to find other nerds out there. (And yes, data sharing will certainly be in the cards, though the 'how' portion of that is still unclear to me.) I want to both collect as much data as possible from previous football seasons (right now, my play-by-play database goes back to 2005), but I also want to figure out how to get others involved in the discovery process. I realize I'm the Chief Nerd for this site, as it were, but great SBN sites are great because of their communities. Hopefully this one develops and thrives like others have.Football Study Hall - For Advanced College Football Statistics You may remember Bill C. of Rock M Nation for the stellar preview he did for us last month. Well, he's started up a site devoted solely to that kind of research, so for to those of you who love his approach to research and statistics, rejoice!
