Abstract

The team, with the help of Advanced Sports Logic (ASL), researched and developed a quantitative method for rating projections of professional Football in order to easily compare the quality of projection systems. We used real life data and projections provided by ASL to gain insight on how to develop the method. The team decided to evaluate the projections for an entire football season to generate an annual score for projection systems. What we created was a rating system that would help developers of projection systems by providing them with a quantitative measure that they could use to value the quality of their projection systems.
