Hut 1. Hut 2. What's the quarter-back going to do? Whatever play he makes, whichever down it is, whoever fumbles the ball, a new computer system will help process the information more quickly.
The SuperStat system helps team statisticians create reports after each quarter and after the game. Some of this information makes its way to the Slap Maxwells in the press box, and other bits head off for the NFL official files.
The system, produced by ABC Development Systems in Minneapolis, uses a PC AT compatible, a 20-megabyte hard disk, and two high-speed Okidata printers.
