Let's get the record updated and sent to DG

I went back to an August 10 post and got the list of 21 reasons why CTS should be fired.  I have tried to update them, but this should probably be double-checked by McCloskey.  (I have highlighted numbers that I changed and explained the change in parenthises)

CTS's Record

  1.  1-4 against Southern Cal.  (Thanks to a nice game that showed us having more punts (11) than first downs (10) and showed us going 0 for 11 on third down)
  2.  No Pac-10 championships.  (This year tied for fourth)
  3.  No BCS bowl games.
  4.  1-11 on the road against teams with a winning record. (We only played one team on the road that had a winning record at the time - justsc.)
  5.  Worst starting 3- AND 4- AND 5- year record of any UCLA football coach since Billy Barnes, including Bob Toledo who was fired.  (Records (ties not counted):  CTS - 35-27 (564); Toledo - 35-23 (603); Donahue - 38-17 (691); Vermeil 15-5 (750); Rodgers 19-12 (612); Prothro 35-13 (729); Barnes 26-22 (541).)
  6.  Worse winning percentage than Bob Toledo, who was fired, and worst winning percentage since Barnes, who was fired.
  7.  5-13 against ranked teams.  (wins against Cal and Oregon, losses against ASU and justsc)
  8.  4-9 against top 10 teams.  (wins against Cal and Oregon, losses against ASU and justsc)
  9.  Only 7 conference wins against teams who finished over .500.
  10. 24-18 against Pac-10 teams.
  11.  11-19 against teams with a winning record. (Wins against BYU, Cal, OU, losses to ASU, justsc)
  12.  14 losses to unranked teams.  (Utah, ND, WSU, AZ)
  13.  He has a losing record after October, 7-15. (win against Oregon, losses to AZ, WSU, justsc)
  14.  Embarrassing losses to Wyoming, Fresno State, Arizona, Southern Cal, Utah, Notre Dame.
  15.  Revolving door for assistant coaches (25 in 5 years).  (I made no changes here.)
  16.  4th OC in 5 years, 4th OL coach in 5 years.  (I made no changes here.)
  17.  4th in conference standings during his 4 years.  (I didn't make a change here - we were fourth this year, and I figured it would still be fourth if I did a bunch of calculating.)
  18.  4th in conference record during his 4 years.  (No changes here, either.)
  19.  5th in conference in overall during his 4 years.  (Ditto.)
22.  And while it's fresh in our minds, against justsc, the team had more punts (11) than points (7) and we were 0 for 11 on third down.)

I would also add the following stats from this year, CTS's fifth with his "unstoppable" West Coast Offense:

Points per game:  22.9 (92nd in D-1)
Yds per game:  335.1 (96th)
Pass yds:  2220 or 185 per game (98th)
Rush yards:  1801 or 150 per game (64th)
3rd down %:  32.1 (106th)
4th downs made:  4 (115th)
Penalties:  92 (101st)  (Note:  I can't tell if these are offensive or defensive or both - I assume both)
Penalty yards:  761 (92nd)
Time of possession:  28:35 (98th)

And for the Dy-No-Mite fanatics, try these numbers.  (I haven't looked to see what they were before Dy-No-Myte took over.)

Points per game:  22.8  (34th out of 119)
yds per game:  349.8 (36th)
Pass yards:  2812 or 234.3 per game (70th)
Rush yards:  1385 or 115.4 per game (25th)

My take on Dy-No-Mite - roughly a third of his colleagues are better than him.  (Maybe to be more accurate, a third of his colleagues produce better results than he does.)

Anyone want to enhance these numbers and send them to DG with a nice cover note?
