      I also realize that I have to refine the study a bit to make sure
      it's not picking up too much of the road/home effect. There are a
      few other potential biases it could pick up without a lot of care.
      In doing this, I should be able to get at the win% by time on the
      road. (I think the results are going to be generally fine, but I
      knew there were reasons I'd never published this stuff.)

      Relating this back to that other topic -- did they play more back-to-
      backs in the old days? If so, we may be able to adjust for that...
