The fourth annual Football Outsiders Almanac is now for sale! We're really excited about this year's edition, as Matt Hinton of Sunday Morning QB and Dr. Saturday fame (now of CBS) joins the college discussion with Brian Fremeau and me. As always, you get major conference summaries and all the projections you could want: offense, defense and win expectancy.
Wake the neighbors, phone the kids. The PDF version of Football Outsiders Almanac 2012 is now ready for you to read. You can go to the FO store to purchase it for $12.50. The printed version and Kindle version are not yet available. We hope to have those ready in a few days.
Here are two samples from this year's book:
Also now available: the 2012 KUBIAK fantasy football projections spreadsheet, as well as packages that combine KUBIAK and FOA 2012, and the 2011 Game Charting Data, with every play from last season in one big workbook for $50.
If you want to discuss the book, head on over to the FOA 2012 discussion board. You will notice that we've already started a thread for the inevitable discovery of typos and small errors, and whatever folks find during the next couple days will be corrected before we send in the manuscript for the published version. Feel free to also ask questions about certain research, projections for various teams, or whatever. We'll try to answer questions either on the board or in mailbag articles.
One important note: It's much easier to answer questions posted either on that discussion board or in an e-mail to mailbag-at-footballoutsiders.com than it is to answer questions sent to us via Twitter or posted randomly off-topic in discussions of other articles. So please, do one of the first two things, and not one of the latter two things.
Hope you enjoy it. And if you have any questions or comments about it, feel free to ask them here or on Twitter. Thanks! Buy, buy, buy!
