Every new coach realistically needs five years to make a program his. He doesn't always get that much time, often being asked to turn things around right away. Five years allows a coach to go through an entire recruiting cycle, get comfortable in the position, and implement everything he'd like to do. With that in mind, we created the CFN Five-Year Program Analysis highlighting off-the-field factors like the Academic Progress Report (do the players go to class) and the players drafted by the NFL (a huge selling point to recruits), to attendance (it pays the bills) and wins, wins, wins. On-field success ends up being all that matters, so that's where the focus lies.

One note, the totals for each team might not add up because we list the total number of wins and losses for the categories, while the Bad Wins and Losses and Elite Wins and Losses might be scored differently (two home losses against 3-9 teams would be scored as a 3).

Quick Explanation of Scores
- Attendance: Home attendance average over the last five years divided by 10,000. Avg. Score: 4.39
- APR: The most recently released Academic Performance Rate. 90th to 100th percentile (best) gets a 10, 1st to 10th percentile (worst) gets a 1 Avg. Score: 5.84
- Quality Wins: Wins over FBS teams that finished with a winning record. Avg. Score: 10.58
- Total Wins: Wins over FBS teams. Avg. Score: 29.76
- Players Drafted: Number of players drafted. Avg. Score: 9.56
- Conference Win %: Conference winning percentage times 10. Avg. Score: 4.97
- Elite Win Score: Wins over FBS teams that finished with two losses or fewer, or on the road, at a neutral site, or in a bowl over teams that finished with three losses or fewer. Add an additional 0.5 for an Elite Win over a two-loss team on the road. Avg. Number: 1.18
- Bad Loss Score: Losses to teams that finished with three wins or fewer or any loss to a non-FBS team. Subtract each loss from the overall total. Subtract an additional 0.5 for each Bad Loss at home. Avg. Number: 2.20
- Elite Losses: Losses to teams that finished with two wins or fewer. Take 0.25 of the number. Avg. Number: 5.14
- Bad Wins: Wins over teams that finished with three wins or fewer or any win to a non-FBS team Avg. Number: 11.27

Program Analysis: How great has Texas been under Mack Brown? It can come up with a donkey of a 5-7 effort last year – with a team with more than enough talent to be in the mix for a BCS game – and still be in the top five.

2004 was the last time the Longhorns were outside of the top ten, and they were a fixture at No. 2 for several years before slipping to third last season. All will be right with the world soon enough, with way too many good players and way too strong a defense to be lousy again, but can Texas be Texas again this year? Was last year a sign that the empire is about to fall, or was that just a case of a team quitting when the carrot of a national title and Big 12 title was gone?

The program has all the elements of being among the best in college football, and having its own network only helps the brand name. The talent, as always, is flowing to the NFL with 26 players drafted, and the Attendance Score is only going to get better with 100,000 the norm now, but the wins have to keep on coming and Brown could be in hot water if there’s another 2010 in the near future.

The 49 FBS wins are fantastic considering there were only five of them last year, and winning 70% of conference games is still strong after finishing on the bottom of the Big 12 South. The 26 Quality Wins are the fourth most in the nation, and again, considering the problems of last year, that’s still impressive.
