in reply to Sports Conference Rankings, Colley Matrix Style

I remember reading an article in Sport's Illustrated, about a statistician who applied this concept to horse racing. He meticulously compiled statistics on every horse and every race.... things like air temp, time of day, dry, muddy, etc. He could then predict with better than 50% accuracy, the results of horse races. He was in Las Vegas, living off of his bets. :-)
