2015 College Baseball

The 2015 season will bring some differences to this site. Last year I moved a number of SEBaseball.com's Baseball Central features to here, following Mark's "retirement." This season marks a re-imagining of D1baseball.com, the data source for all of my analysis, so this site will change as necessary to avoid duplication.

This table lists the teams' average opponents' 2014 ISR values for all games and noncoference games, with the relative rank (ix) within D1 for each. To provide context, the report also includes the ISR rank for which at least half of the team's games are played against that rank or better (MedR) and the number of games (#Gms) and number of opponents (#Opp) for all and non-conference games.
