    Hey everyone,

    I'm an independent analyst and all around sports fan. I put together a dashboard from a play-by-play feed for everyone's enjoyment. This dashboard highlights what are known as The Four Factors, those stats which have the most significant impact on a game’s outcome. In addition, I put an emphasis on tempo-free stats, which you are unable to find anywhere else. There’s nothing like it on ESPN or Yahoo.

    The dashboard is an Excel file. It's not a trojan, I promise. If it is I'll let anybody stab me in the nutsack repeatedly with dirty syringes and broken glass. Since I'm a Montanan, it's not that far away for any of you to come after me. ;)

    Your guys's program has really gotten some momentum the last few years and I'd love to see it continue. I hope everyone has a merry Christmas. Enjoy!

    Question: how is this different from Kenpom?

    I learned about tempo free stats from him and a couple of other sources. So in that sense, it's not innovative (but I've never represented my work that way). Like I say, I'm not a statistician and I'm not representing myself as such.

    But Kenpom does not provide visuals, which is key to what I'm doing. A visual provides instant feedback and context in a way that just looking at a table of numbers can't. That, and I'm doing all the work for you and all you have to do is select a radio button or drop down.

    Having said that, I'm not aware of anybody, anywhere, who's tracking feet of field goals made and And 1's.

    When I get some time, I'm interested into investigating whether there's a correlation between winning and feet of field goals made.

    Not really mobile device friendly, it seems.
