    Notre Dame and Alabama stats

    I have come across some really good raw ncaa statistical data. I had an idea to create a database and generate my own reports/comparisons. After a few days of playing and trying to verify the accuracy, I posted a pdf of the first few pages of a document that as I add to it, will give a great picture of the BCSNC game from a statistical standpoint. I'll be adding to it almost daily. You guys check it out and give me some feedback on the presentation, and certainly let me know if you believe there is an error. I have a long term project of creating a web site where the user could generate their own reports based on choosing certain flags and options. I am a loooong way from that, but this small project will help me verify the accuracy of the data, and the integrity of the relationships in the database. I have the entire season indexed on a play by play basis, and plan to use that to generate some situational play calling tendencies. Take a look and let me know...I could use some good feedback

    I always go to the source, the NCAA database, for comparisons.

    Re: Notre Dame and Alabama stats

    I find the statistics there a bit limited, they concentrate on summaries and totals and don't provide much detail. The data I'm using to generate the stats is the same data

    One thing that stands out is "average team ranking" as it appears on the Strength of Schedule. In statistical terms, the mean is inappropriate for using on ordinal variables such as team ranking. The median is more appropriate.

    Re: Notre Dame and Alabama stats

    I'd be interested in seeing, for all teams, # of kickoffs kicked and # of kickoffs received.
    Do you have that readily available?

    I get the vast majority of the stats I use from this site.

    Re: Notre Dame and Alabama stats

    Before I make score predictions, I always look at the number of FGs kicked in relationship to TDs scored. Bama has scored 65 TDs and kicked 15 FGs in 13 games. ND has scored 36 TDs and kicked 24 FGs in 12 games. Which is the primary reason I am picking it 34-13 Bama!

    The real reason? The game is in Miami. When I think Miami, I think 34-13 Bama!

    I'd be interested to see what it would be like if touchbacks could be included, and FCS teams excluded.
    As it is, Alabama has a 4.84:1 kickoff to return ratio, exceeded only by Cal Poly who has 5:1 from a single game against Wyoming.

    That score is Holy, and should be retired.
    Bama 34-14 or 33-13 will be fine :-)
