119th issue.

Welcome! This week features three soccer-related articles, one college football, and one baseball.

The soccer triplet is data-driven in showing how penalty shootouts are fair for each team, highlighting visual tracking algorithms, and reinforcing why xG is important to betting.

The college football piece gets nerdy and uses k-means clustering to create new football conferences based on a number of inputs. Lastly, the Tigers are getting a bargain in their offseason acquisition.
