I’m happy to announce the first open release of college football data from cfbstats.com.
This release includes game-level statistics for the 2005-2012 seasons, comprising 5892 games through 9/29/2012. The plan is to update the data file for 2012 each week for the rest of the season. As time allows, future releases will also include more in-depth data, including play-level data. I had hoped to get some play-level data into this first release, but my primary goal was to release something this week and I did not have time.
While I’d like this first release to be perfect, I don’t expect it. I do expect there be an iterative process of improvement in each release based on your feedback. Please send any comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
