Statistical Analysis in Sport

Statistical analysis can be a useful tool in many professions, but especially in sport where numbers and trends are everything. Looking through the links and articles that my professor posted I was able to learn about the different uses for it. I really felt the article in the New York Times( about how the NFL is using statistics and hiring analyst to compile stats before they draft a potential player. I thought that it was interesting how much the coaches placed not only on the player himself but also on the stats and how a player could effect the entire organization. Teams use statistics to look at all aspects of the game on and off the field. Statistical analysis is the new wave.
