So I'm a senior econ major at GW and am writing my capstone paper this semester. I'm trying to write it on how recruiting ranking fare in terms of predicting team win percentage. Its supposed to be a heavily quantitative paper, and as of now I plan on including the number of 2, 3, 4, 5, and NR star players(using Scout and Rivals) by class for each of the BCS conference schools as my regressors, while also including both time and entity fixed effects.
I've been thinking of how to refine/improve this topic, and figured that there's no better place than here to look for help. Anything you guys post will be much appreciated.
