Analytics matter

The Syracuse Orange travel to Chapel Hill to face the North Carolina Tar Heels this afternoon, playing for the first time after Drake released “For All the Dogs”.

Of course we wondered how #CanadaSCollegeTeam has fared after new music from Drizzy hits the streets, so we put our FNSI staff on the case.

The Orange have done a lot better after new Drake drops then when we get new Taylor Swift music (5-7 after this year’s win over Colgate).

Dino Babers had won four in a row until last year’s loss to Pitt, which was a collaboration album and not a Drake solo, so could we be looking at some data correlation should the Orange upset the Tar Heels today?

If so, how can we get Drake back in the studio to get another album for us by next weekend?
