Presentation at 2020 November University of Arkansas - MSOM Lunch and Learn

In November 2020, I got the chance to share my sports analytics research during the Master of Science in Operations Managment’s Lunch and Learn series. This hobby project started in 2015 when I wanted to learn more about R, sports analytics, and machine learning.

The data consists of the ESPN Great Analytics Rating in 2015, salary information, and the results for each MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL team from 2014-2019. Everyone is invited to participate via my GitHub repo. All the data and R code is available for collaboration.
