Do you like stats? Do you like links? How about lots of links about stats?
MIT’s Sloan School of Management is hosting their sixth annual Sloan Sports Analytics Conference (SSAC) this weekend, an event that brings together panelists and guests who discuss the importance of the increasing role of analytics (ie. all that Moneyball stuff) in sports. The conference has attracted hundreds of NBA owners, GM’s, coaches, and even some players (Jeremy Lin will appear on Sunday) throughout the years, not to mention numerous columnists and media personalities.
