  1. The article I chose discusses the metrics system used by sports analysts to decide on which teams will have more future success using statistics and relationships from prior years. I chose this article because I was interested in what statistics play heavily in their suggestive decision.
  2. The data used within the article written by Sharon Katz, was produced by three members of the analytics team — Brian Burke, Zach Bradshaw, and Alok Pattani. The article produced a questionnaire conducted by Katz and answers were produced from the three members.
  3. One further question I have following the article is related to the actual formula. Although the team declares pinpointing a distinct formula is difficult to due based on the incredible amount of variables used, is there any data system that a monitor can produce more efficiently?
