Discussion With Sam Wolkenhauer About Football Analytics

We've got a bonus 'cast! Marc, Matt, and Orion are joined by Sam Wolkenhauer, who has built a football analytics algorithm to try to predict games and evaluate teams. You can find all of his stuff at peteratings.wordpress.com. In the podcast, we discuss his model and what kind of cognitive errors he sees football teams and coaches making that are causing their teams to lose more than they should. We cross apply some of that thinking to board games, even. Tune in and find out all sorts of good rational thinking, even if you're not a big fan of American football. Also find out why running backs don't matter.
