Week 13 Record Watch

Total Points Hartman couldn’t quite pull off setting the 13 game points record after only 12 weeks of play. He needs all of 17 points to set a new record while D’Skae looks primed to crack the top five and Harrington the top ten. Higdon has fallen off the list. Proportional Wins The Good Hartman had a rough Week 12, only outscoring 3 other teams (and losing to Shokunbi) for 0.

Week 12 Record Watch

This week’s post could alternatively be titled, “Hartman is Heading for Home” on a few covetted points records. One record he hasn’t touched this year has been the single game points record, where despite his success this year, he hasn’t even cracked the top ten. In fact, the current record was set by RJ against Hartman! I wrote about that here. But I digress. Total Points Hartman comfortably out in front of all challengers in the ten years of Bad Newz history.

Week 11 Record Watch

Another week, another check-in on potential records being set. The post last week successfully jinxed Hartman as he lost for the first time. My playoff and BYE probabilities are again calculable. Total Points Hartman still comfortably ahead. Both D’Skae and Harrington also remain on the board, separated by a mere 3.2 points. Proportional Wins The gap is narrowing here but Hartman still has a comfortable lead through 10 weeks of play.

Week 10 Record Watch

Hartman has been on tear this season. The first team to start the season 7-0, then 8-0, then 9-0. He has broken my playoff probability and BYE probability metrics in the Advanced Standings. Surely this must put him on track to break some records…let’s see what the data says. Total Points Sure enough, 2018 Hartman is head and shoulders above the rest. D’Skae and Harrington also in the mix. I’ll temper their excitement by saying points are way way up in Bad Newz this year.

The Single Game Points Record Championship Belt

Welcome back to Stats Corner posts for the 2017 season! Better late than never. This is the first post on a new platform, as you can see. I have purchased the domain www.statscorner.com. I’ve gone back and incorporated posts from previous years dating back to 2014. You can find through the home page. Links to both the Advanced Standings and Record Book appear on the left hand side. So if nothing else statscorner.

Season Finale

A New Points Record RJ set a new points record against Hartman in the toilet bowl semi-final. I thought he was a shoe-in for last place this year. His team stinks. But he shattered Hartman’s record against Hartman! That should teach Hartman never to set records again. So here is what the updated leaderboard looks like for most points in a game: Owner Team Year Week Points Thieneman 12.

Calm Down Tim

Thanks Tim for the idea on the league message board for this post. I figure I’ll address it head on. For those of you who don’t know, even though to have clicked on this link you must have seen that he posted something, this is what he said: Can we get something on the likelihood that a team sets the single season point record and misses the playoffs?! Because it looks like we’re heading that way[.

Week 4

A bit belated but the annual statistical update has arrived. Note: You too can have this data. Find the game data here.If you want to play around with owner totals you’ll need to fold in the information found here. I retain all editing privileges but you can play around with the data at your leisure. I hope to update the spreadsheets weekly. In due time you will be able to find all data and R code on github.
