NCAA Football Team, University of Missouri 1988: Development of a Permutation Test

Football players of the 1988 MU team were classified in their best suited playing position, based on their anthropometric measurements. Principal components of the anthropometric measurements were obtained, and a permutation test was developed to test for significance in the dispersion of measurements, by permuting over the possible values of the playing positions. Programs were written in FORTRAN with IMSL routines.
