What they really need to compare the referees is the average winning percentage for the school for all games. If it's then say 75% you can see what refs are above and below that number.

Maybe someone else who is really bored can...

Ah wait, according to this page:
http://www.ukfans.net/jps/uk/trends.html

Someone had a lot of time to make the entire site. But you know all of these statistics could be in some major database and they just pull out different facts which really wouldn't be too hard, just entering it all in is all.

Old news. We've discussed it several times before.

I'm on a Kentucky discussion board with him. I've helped him a time or two with small issues on his website.

He's really a good guy and has no agenda regarding officials.

He has a plethora of statistics on Kentucky basketball on his site. The officials is just a minute portion of the data. It's just raw stats that come along with the box scores.

He has just about all box scores in the history of Kentucky basketball....the earliers one is 1903.

In that case, it really would be interesting to do as brainbrian suggests and compare overall win/loss record to the w/l for each ref. Maybe even factor in the home and away angle. Perhaps you could suggest it to him. There could be a little essay on the website, about how the refs work to be neutral, and that they really don't play favorites -- the statistics could really help bolster that position. There might even be a professor who would want to use those figures in a math class. to illustrate that great Mark Twain quote, "There are lies, and there are damn lies, and then there are statistics."
