re: Recruiting Megathread - alpinetiger
[quote]Jboy just released an interview with Tony Fair. He listed a Top 3 of Purdue, Ole Miss, Auburn with "no leader" but there is confidence on the AU Side. This kid is really really well spoken and can really hold a conversation. [/quote] Pure speculation, but the combo of Mason and Eason I'm ...

re: The effectiveness of college football recruiting ratings in predicting team success - alpinetiger
Yeah its not a great paper or top journal worthy and I mentioned other factors earlier, but I stumbled across it looking for something else. I've just never seen research on this subject. What are the names of the sports econ journals you mentioned? ...

[quote]Thompson said he was trying different things already since he kept thinking they would turn the corner but never did. So he is pulling guys quicker, at least he said that and it showed in the series win against GA. But he didn't do that against LSU last night, as our reliever walked 3 g...

re: The effectiveness of college football recruiting ratings in predicting team success - alpinetiger
[quote]Hmm...that may be difficult to find since the transfer rules are relatively new and there wouldn’t be a long enough time series to make a meaningful conclusion. I did search a few sports econ journals and yielded no results on college football transfers. I will add that this might be somethin...

[quote]"The results indicate that knowing recruiting rankings explains up to 36% of the variability of the Sagarin ratings." Am I just drunk, or is this complete gibberish?[/quote] If you were to read the Methods section and look at the results it would make more sense. As an example, look at ...

[quote]I can also say in my 40 plus years of watching and playing CFB that a kid transferring found success less than 10% of the time.[/quote] This would be a great research paper because you would have a robust data-set and could set up rules-based "success" factors. I'm going to look to see if ...

I'd like to know their methodology. Seems spotty to me. Is it census election data? First one is SLC. I do live 1.5 miles from downtown, but I don't believe this is accurate at all. Out of the 12ish neighbors I know well 3 are democrats, but traditional democrats. Its a nice area too. [img]h...
