Machine Learning and Data Mining for Sports Analytics
I'm a big college sports fan, especially active in debates about which D1 conference is best. In separate rankings, Division I,II, and III schools are assigned points based on their standings in odd collegiate sports across gender and season. The sports are equal-weighted in the final calculations, so that the winner of women's rowing is awarded the same number of points as the winner of men's football. And it's far from all or nothing, as points are allotted to many top competitors in each sport. The point differential between first and fifth is not that dramatic. Athletic Directors see their schools' aggregate DC "points" and "ranks" as important grades on their athletic report cards. Indeed many AD's are bonused in part based on their Directors' Cup performance.
