  • Jim Cochran, QA PhD (1997), was recently featured in an INFORMs podcast on analytics in sports.

Fans of baseball and other sports have been fascinated with data and statistics for decades. In recent years, though, numbers crunchers beginning with Bill James have been delving deeper to settle sports arguments, help teams plan, and tell municipal planners if there's any money for their cities in building large sports stadiums. Jim Cochran, an expert in sports and analytics, speaks on what the numbers reveal in major league baseball, NCAA basketball and football, the NBA, and more.
