Conference Comparison Report quickly allows interested party to review some Key Performance Indicators for all teams within a conference.

Most KPI's are self-explanatory.

Baseball

  • Conference W-L-T
  • Overall W-L-T
  • Head Coach Tenure
    • Number of years coaching , "*"  means pending coaching change.

Team Roster Insights

  • Roster Size (Website/EADA)
    • Compares the roster on the team website with the participation size reported to Dept of Education.  Why is this relevant, the team website for specified year might not accurately reflect player roster due to attrition, injuries, etc. (e.g. final 2016 Coastal Carolina website roster size equals 29, whereas they reported 35 to Dept. of Education). 
  • Player Attrition (Overall/Freshman)
    • Compares two consecutive years, (e.g. 2019 report compares 2018 and 2019 rosters).  Overall number of players from 2018 team that are not on 2019 roster
  • Grad Class (Under/Upper)
    • Number of Underclass (Freshman, Sophomore) vs Upperclass (Junior, Senior, Graduates)
  • Residency (In-State/Out-of-State)
    • Number of Students on team for home state vs Out-of-State
  • Transfers (Overall/JUCO)
    • Number of players that have transferred into program (Overall number of players vs number of Junior College Players)
  • Rostered Redshirts (Overall/Freshman)
    • Number of players on the roster that have been redshirted.  Note, there is a time lag with respects to teams identifying players on roster as being redshirted.  Also not all teams included their redshirts on the rosters.  This can lead to misrepresentation of Player Attrition
  • Collegiate Summer League (Overall/Top 10)
  • MLB Player Draft (Overall/Signed)
    • Number of Players Drafted and signed for the specified year.  Why relevant?  Helps understand player attrition due to draft

    • All expenses an institution incurs attributable to home, away, and neutral-site intercollegiate athletic contests (commonly known as game-day expenses), for (A) Lodging, meals, transportation, uniforms, and equipment for coaches, team members, support staff (including, but not limited to team managers and trainers), and others; and (B) Officials.

College Admission Tests

  • SAT 25/75
  • ACT 25/75

 

Are these percentile of students who were accepted with the score indicated?

25th percentile means that 25% of the accepted students made a 1400 or below on the test. It also means that 75% of the accepted students scored above a 1400. 75th percentile means that 75% of the accepted students made a 1570 or below on the test and that 25% of the accepted students scored above a 1570

So, just so people reading this are clear: that SAT/ACT number is for ALL matriculating students; not JUST athletes.

Therefore, except for some schools/leagues (e.g., IVY), that statistic - because it includes EVERY incoming student - is a pretty worthless metric in determining if your player is recruitable. 

Because each school (except for the Ivy league which sets a league-wide standard for athletes) has it's own unique testing standards, the coach is the one who knows the minimums. The coach knows how low the range for athletes extends; for the athlete wondering if he can be admitted, ONLY the lowest number is important; a range is irrelevant.

Parents must realize that athletes are given leeway in scores which regular applicants don't have - including the Ivy league.

(It is for another discussion whether a kid scoring 1000 in a school where 50% is 1300 is an indication of anything.)

An easy way to think of this is it's the middle 50% of the accepted students... not the bottom quartile which probably got accepted for other reasons, and not the top quartile which may have gotten academic money for sticking around.
