@Maryam, that's a good question. I would assume it was proprietary, but it was based on proven research about factors that lead adolescents to eventually drop out of school.

Broadway that is fascinating was it proprietary software or something generally available?

@Maryam, I betcha there is an algorithm already in existence that can help predict the potential personal disaster of an athlete. Will he shoot himself in the leg in a nightclub? Wrap his Porsche around a tree after a night of drinking? Attend a college party and get caught smoking illegal drugs in an Instagram? I used to volunteer for a nonprofit that could ID kids in 8th with the highest chances of not finishing high school. I would guess that sort of predictive modeling could be turned toward 20-something atheletes.

Its one way that sports teams can make a better prediction of their contract investment. Now if we could only get analytics to predict their behavior off the field that would be a real game changer!

There is no doubt that analytics has begun to play a very, very large role in sports. I recently saw a job posting for a pro football (read soccer) team that was looking for a data analysit.

Ha! Perfect for when the data's coming at you at mega (giga?) warp speeds. Good one, magneticnorth... and I love the C3PO gif, Nick.

LOL with all the talk of sports analytics influencing drafts and contract renewals we will certainly see more analysts at the root of the Monday monrning quarterback discussions!
