Flip on the TV and turn on any MLB baseball game, and within the first 10 minutes, you will see a defensive shift implemented. WHY, because data doesn't LIE. It doesn't always tell the complete truth, but it doesn't lie. MLB teams have been quick to use data and technology to help them win. Look at the MLB teams who are doing it the best ... They lead divisions and win championships (aka Astros).
We are taking this same approach to the college selection process.
So, if data doesn't LIE, and your can't judge a book by its cover, then data and technology should be used in the college selection and recruiting process. Coach David Grewe, and his team, have created a very detailed algorithm that ranks and scores every KEY aspect of a college baseball program. On top of that, their computer application matches athletes with schools and programs via the TWO ranking scores produced through the algorithm. An overall score that indicates how a program ranks according to every KEY attribute. And then a "FITFACTOR" score that aligns a program to an athlete's chosen preferences.
See, from Coach Grewe's experiences coaching at the college level, you can't just say a program is elite because they had a good winning percentage. It's critical to look at the entire program and all the performance attributes. How did they do in the post-season? Did they graduate their players? Did they prepare their players for the key moments of the game? Did they have good leadership? Did they develop their hitters? How about their pitchers? And on, and on, and on ...
From an insider perspective, we have created the most objective standard (we don't believe in opinions) and comprehensive platform of scoring college baseball programs ... according to the KEY attributes below:
