Statistical Profile: Vic Beasley, Clemson

September 30, 2013


Most of my work in the past has compared three to four players, examining relative ‘tiers’ of players. Now that I’m charting in more detail during the season, it’s a little harder to get enough games done in a week to do a comparison piece that won’t be outdated by next Saturday. So leading up […]
