Hi, my name is Ed Feng, and I founded The Power Rank to bring more analytics and visualization to sports, football in particular.
It all started when I applied my Ph.D. research in physics from Stanford to ranking sports teams. This algorithm provides a way to accurately account for strength of schedule.
The visual to the right shows the application of this method to yards per play in college football.
My work has appeared in Grantland, Sports Illustrated, Advanced NFL Stats and MGoBlog.
