Since no one else has posted something similar in this thread yet, I thought I would go ahead and share the stats-tracking sheet that I've been keeping throughout the season. It's not the most thorough, but it should still be helpful, and its updated through this past weekend's WAO mirrors. I'll try to keep it updated throughout the year as more tournaments happen too. If I missed anything or made any major errors, feel free to let me know. Anyway, here you go!

It seems that you missed the NYU mirror of EFT: http://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/3929.

Ugh, no idea how I missed that entire site. I'll try to add those stats in later this evening. Thanks for pointing that out!

Jumping on the EFT stats bandwagon, it looks like EFT at WUSTL and Youngstown state are not yet included.

Added these too. Eventually we'll run out of EFT mirrors for me to have missed!

Note that Will Mason is spending the semester at Tennessee (where he will be playing quiz bowl), so our stats for EFT and Terrapin aren't predictive of our Nationals results. Our Nationals A team will almost certainly be me, Seth, Patrick, and Collin (in other words, our Penn Bowl lineup).

If he's playing at Tennessee that should also cause a serious re-assessment of their ranking.

P/G on the WAO sheet is actually G/N, right?

Thanks for doing this, but you seem to have missed the Canadian WAO mirror where a full Toronto A and a shorthanded McGill A attended.

Yeah, this is correct now.

No problem! Glad to hear people are finding them helpful/interesting. I don't think the stats were up for this mirror yet when I added the other WAO mirrors from last weekend, but they're in the sheet now. Also, at risk of further taking over Mike's discussion post with corrections, just PM me any other fixes people find for these sheets, and I'll edit this reply with what's been added.

EDIT: WAO mirrors from 1/28 should have all been added to this by now.
