In my latest post for Princeton Sports Analytics, I analyze the length of a baseball playoff series and determine how many games you would need to play before you can be “fairly certain” that the better team is moving on to the next round.
I published a piece on NFL.com to find the minimum amount of time it would take to see every single NFL team, taking into account the 2014 NFL schedule.
I used linear programming find the optimal trip, and also threw in some fun facts using the distance data that I accumulated to calculate the trip itself.
It spent a full two days on the NFL.com home page in the days leading up to the Kickoff Game – the first NFL game of the 2014 season.
My second on-air mention.
In my latest piece for Princeton Sports Analytics, I take a glimpse at 1st down conversion rates by situation in the NFL to see if play success goals (like getting at least 4 yards on 1st down) are backed up by the data.
