My name is Ryan Kobliska, and welcome to The Basketball Notebook. You might remember me from such basketball blogs as Hawkeye Hoops and. . . . .Hawkeye Hoops, the current edition. My writing there is rather focused on one team, as you might've observed from the blog's name, but my interest in the game stretches far beyond those narrow bounds. The Basketball Notebook is intended to be a place for me to write, analyze, speculate, criticize and reminisce about the goings-on in the broader arena of the most exciting sport in our country, NCAA basketball. It's currently a work-in-progress - the sidebar and page template are subject to change at any time - but I don't feel much like waiting any longer to get started.
If you read any of my past writing, you probably know that I'm particularly fascinated with statistical analysis, and that will continue to be the theme here. I'd like to write on a regular basis, but I certainly won't make any promises to that effect. The freedom to set your schedule is a bonus for being your own editor.
Hope you enjoy the work, and I look forward to your feedback. Comments are welcomed, as are emails.
