The goal of this project is to create a mysql database which contains sports stats from the following sports: college football, college basketball, pro basketball (NBA), major league baseball(MLB), and pro football (NFL). This might be done through some api (i dont know any exist) or through screen scraping.
For each sport, there should be an update file (I prefer php but am open to alternatives) which goes out and pulls in the data into the database. Since most of the sports have positions that will have different stats (ie pitchers vs batters) there might be multiple types of stats to get on each sport.
Here is my very high level breakdown per sport and what types of stats to get:
College football - passing, rushing, reciving
College basketball - general player stats
Pro football - passing, rushing, reciving
Pro basketball - general player stats
Major League Baseball - pitching, batting
I also would like an [url removed, login to view] file setup as an example on how I could build a html table from the stats. I have an example which I could show you on what I am looking to create.
