I can gaurantee you that I won't be as good as he is at producing that sort of data, however, I will be doing something similar on my site. It will probably be limited to the Big 12 but we'll see how it goes and I may figure out a way to expand that scope.
I won't use any of the data to predict who will win like he did but I am planning to provide the review of team's performances and player performances as well.
The $20 may well be worth it, especially considering he is working on a few more tools that could be neat to view. From my understanding if you are a subscriber he doesn't discriminate against using the data in a public forum. So perhaps a weekly update or game analysis would be worthwhile, the CF statistician khaal may be interested in that...
Since his ratings are all data based, new players who are difference makers aren't factored in at this point. Essentially, he has no data on a few guys who will make a extremely large impact on our team.
Or, we are all WAY overhyping some of these guys. I'm going with the first option!
So long story short, he wants money for what he does. Why not just say that....don't give us the BS "this site has reached its saturation" blah blah.
On principle I won't pay to view the site.
And what right is it that you have to view all of this for free? He could have charged from the beginning and for all of the data, rather he will leave most still available for free and a cheap fee of $20 to view some of the best statistics available for NCAA basketball...
