Comments: To: Jack Hamilton <jfh@STANFORDALUMNI.ORG>

In M2009, a Japanese professor introduced some noval algorithms that he used for sports coach to research into effective tactics by studying the position and timing of players as well as other attributes on the field. The professor introduced this research to the J-League, the prime soccer league in Japan and helped a team won champion.

It was a very interesting topic but his accent made it difficult to follow.
