Looking for a football stat manager program

    Hey guys,
    I recently started a job with a newspaper in Latrobe, PA. We are a 6-a-week paper, and getting football scores in fast is key. I have a football stat sheet I found on here, but I didn't see if there was a football stat program or spreadsheet that I could use so the stats are calculated faster. Any ideas? A free program would be ideal, but I would buy a program if need be.
    Thanks a bunch.

    You can make MS Excel do that, but you have to know how to use it.

    Insightful, yet veiled.

    Getting to learn the program is not some 10-minute process. Half of my Computer Science 101 class in college was on Excel.

    Yes, but learning some excel basics at least is well worth the investment. I moved all of our Scoreboard standings to an excel doc a few years back, and it's been much better and I'm able to put much more detail into Scoreboard than simple W-Ls. I've tweaked it here and there along the way, too.

    No argument from me on that. The above poster sounded like he wanted me to produce a crash-course on Excel, and that's just not going to happen.
