  • Interesting viewpoint.
    I appreciate learning different perspectives like this. Thanks AJ

    Keep being innovative. BSN can only grow when it experiments with new ideas as the only way to grow is to get out of our comfort zone.

    I wish analytics could tell me the spread from the eye test to analytics. Are we 65% incorrect, or 10%? Are coaches better? Is there a way to have a testing tool for coaches for this. Players.

    How teams use analytics. Do they tell player A to have a goal of being 5% better on CF for or? Are older players tuned out.

  • Scouch’s sheet is really interesting to look at various sorts. Turcotte has by far the highest even strength points and primary points per 60. Thanks for introducing us to Scouch’s work, AJ.
