This summer we have added a number of new features to College Football at Sports Reference, not to mention statistics for over 2600 school seasons prior to 2000 (the first year we have complete FBS statistics). In this post I would like to highlight some of these new additions.

Sports Reference’s New Blog: Stathead
I have to admit that I find it very hard to follow all of the great research that people people are producing every day on the web. Following the top two or three sites is hard enough, but when you add in team blogs, other stathead blogs and everything else, it becomes impossible. This doesn’t even include trying to locate recent research in hockey, baseball, football and soccer.
So we’ve decided to do something about it. Every weekday, the Stathead blog will summarize the best research-related studies, news, conferences, and resources for baseball, basketball, football, hockey and soccer.
The blog will primarily be edited by Neil Paine and will typically feature 20-30 links to analytic content around the internet. We’ve been working out the format over the last two weeks, and we think you’ll soon appreciate our concise summaries for all of the articles we write about.
Feedback as always is welcome.

Just in time for the big game, our Super Bowl Squares mobile app is now available at the iTunes store and the Android Marketplace.
If you’re at a Super Bowl party this weekend and there’s a game of squares set up, this app will tell you which squares have the best chance of winning based on game data from 1994-2010. Also, if you’re new to the game, there’s a page devoted to basic rules that will help you navigate your first SB squares experience. The app costs $0.99, but will pay for itself many times over if you win the pool.

Starting today, SR’s college basketball site will be updated on a daily basis with 2010-11 statistics and results. Player game logs and splits are not ready yet, but they should be up by December 1 at the latest. Keep in mind that there are almost 350 Division I schools, so early on there may be a few hiccups. Please help us out by letting us know if anything looks amiss, either by posting a comment on the CBB blog or by filling out the CBB feedback form.

Just a quick note to point out that we’ve made some front-page additions to better help you keep up with the 2010 college football action, including the current AP Top 10, upcoming Top AP 25 matchups, and a “Heisman Watch” section to highlight the award’s leading candidates. As always, send us your feedback via email or in the comments below, and we’ll keep trying to make the site an even better resource for you as the 2010 season goes on.

Thanks to a little lot of help from our friends — namely Doug Drinen and Neil Paine — we now have partial rosters (starters and key reserves) dating back to the 1953 season for 70 major schools. For example, check out the roster page for the 1971 Nebraska Cornhuskers. We also have partial statistics for the school’s primary passers, rushers, and receivers: completions, attempts, yards, and touchdowns for quarterbacks; attempts and yards for running backs; and receptions and yards for wide receivers and tight ends. Special thanks go out to Bob Boyles and Paul Guido, authors of The USA TODAY College Football Encyclopedia, for providing the files necessary to produce these rosters.
