Historical basketball work

With football almost over, I have done some work on basketball. This has been a big challenge. For many of the years 2001-2005, I did not record playoff, site, or overtime information. I have now redone 2003-2010, updating all reports and completing the dataset with playoff, site, and overtime information.

To do:

2001 – I have a complete set of regular season scores. I do not have a schedule file. Additionally scores are dated per week; but I think I can assign correct dates by going back to the original files. Playoff scores need to be entered. Overtime information needs to be added.

2002 – This year is also another large amount of work. Scores are complete with correct dates. I have a schedule file that needs to be integrated to get locations. Playoff scores are missing and need to be added. Overtime information needs to be added.

Composite: I need to create a composite report of multiple years: maybe a report of the last half of the decade, 2006-2010 and another report for the current dataset 2003-2010. On big problem is undoubtedly inconsistent team names: Story City Roland-Story vs Story City RS.

2. In class 4A, rankings use regional-parity bias: average of teams in western Iowa = average of teams in eastern Iowa.

October 2010 web statistics

In past months I had the ability to easily remove the effect of my access to the website. In October I upgrade my home internet connection to DSL and lost this easy ability. Thus October numbers include my Fedora use in maintaining the website.
