Coaching by numbers - NCAA Football - Yahoo! Sports
I like looking at stats (and chicks too). There is some good stuff in this article.
Click on the PDF to look at some more statistics. One that is encouraging to me is the rankings of recruiting classes from 2003 - 2007 for the final top 10 from last season. Half of those teams did not recruit particularly well according to rivals.com. (all of their classes were in the top half of Div 1 though each season)
Translation: Coaching makes a HUGE difference & stars are not everything.
I look to coach Chiz to make that difference at ISU.
