Let us know what you think:
- a worthwhile effort
- a waste of time, space and electrons
I'm sure I'll regret it, but I'm still planning on posting HD Box scores for all available Big East conf. games. At this point, however, there are a number of schools that are not posting complete play-by-play data, so this may be limited.
Here's a summary of what I've found so far (table edited, thanks to info from FriarBlog.com in comments):
School PBP Good? Comments
Cincinnati Maybe No substitution data at team site; StatSheet.com?
Connecticut Yes Only pbp & final box score; should be able to handle this
DePaul No No substitution data
Georgetown Yes Preferred style
Louisville Yes Same format as G'town
Marquette Yes Same format as G'town
Notre Dame Yes No 2nd half box score; can handle this
Pittsburgh Yes No 2nd half box score; can handle this
Providence Maybe Box score only at team site; StatSheet.com?
Rutgers Maybe Box score only at team site; StatSheet.com?
St. John's No Box score only
Seton Hall Yes Only pbp & final box score; should be able to handle this
South Florida Yes Only pbp & final box score; should be able to handle this
Syracuse No No substitution data
Villanova Yes Same format as G'town
West Virginia Maybe Box score only at team site; StatSheet.com?
As I understand it, the home team will determine what kind of game data is available, so right now only 9 teams will put out play-by-play that I can process. With StatSheet.com, that would be 13 teams, with only DePaul, St. John's and Syracuse missing.
I'll send off an e-mail to each school's S.I.D. where the game data is lacking, and maybe I can fill in some of these gaps.
I don't want to clutter up the front page with box scores that may not be of great interest to my reader (e.g. DePaul v. South Florida), so I'll put a link on the right side bar to a master page with links to all teams, and then sub-pages for each team. I'll try to get that set up tonight.
Let me know if you'd like to see something that I'm not providing, either in the HD box score or in how it's presented here. And please be patient if a game isn't posted right away - real life duties will likely take up most of my time on-and-off during the rest of the season.
