Well, the new college basketball season is upon us. My early predictions indicate that the Kentucky Blue Platoon is going to play the Kentucky White Platoon in the Championship game, but that prediction might evolve as we see more games.
In the meantime, I have been working on the Net Prophet model (for new readers of the blog - ha, as if! - sometimes known as the Pain Machine or PM). Traditionally the PM has used a linear regression as its predictive model, but lately I have been looking at other possibilities. In coming blog posts I'll detail some of these things.
I'm also hoping to get my act together enough to get the PM listed on the Prediction Tracker page for basketball predictions. I meant to do this last year but never quite got around to doing it. But this year for sure :-).
