Residual Prolixity. It is only updated occasionally, but it's by Outsider NewsToTom. AFAICT, he's the only guy out there who reviews football books. He'll also occasionally act as an aggregator. In this capacity, he turned me on to Smart Football. I'm not that much of an NCAA fan, but I enjoy Chris's site and the game theoretic approach he uses. A similar site for the pro game is Advanced NFL Stats.
With regards to other sports, FO's partners cover baseball, hoops, and now hockey. I like baseball most of those three and know of a few other sites that might interest readers: Baseball Think Factory was where I first learned of FO. That's more of a news site, ala Extra Points, the last few years. Hardball Times has more original content. But if you are looking for hardcore, statswonk analysis, this is where Tom Tango and others hang out.
