He doesn't always get that much time, often being asked to turn things around right away. Five years allow 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 have created our CFN Five-Year Program Analysis (it used to be three years, but we supersized it) 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 have listed 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: 4.37 - 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: 9.62 - Total Wins: Wins over FBS teams. Avg. Score: 29.25 - Players Drafted: Number of players drafted. Avg. Score: 9.62 - Conference Win %: Conference winning percentage times 10. Avg. Score: 4.96 - 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: 1.25 - 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: 2.03 - Elite Losses: Losses to teams that finished with two wins or fewer. Take 0.25 of the number. Avg. Number: 5.02 - Bad Wins: Wins over teams that finished with three wins or fewer or any win to a non-FBS team Avg. Number: 10.83 - Detailed Explanation of the Scoring System and Categories 7. Georgia 2010 Total Score: 112.27 2009 Ranking: 6 Program Analysis: Georgia might be unable to get over the hump to be a part of the national title fun, but the program is still among the best in America. After hitting the high mark of the No. 3 spot in 2004, this is as low as the Bulldogs have been since the rankings were created. The slide might continue with the 10-3 2005 season not counting next year, but with a loaded team (at least everywhere but quarterback) and with the SEC East a bit down, a double-digit win campaign is possible. The talent level remains high with 27 players drafted over the last five seasons, and the Quality Wins are there with as many as anyone other than Florida, USC, Texas, and Virginia Tech, but the really, really big wins (even with an impressive Elite Win Score of 5.5) haven't been there to become the SEC's premier team since 2005, and there haven't been any conference title appearances since whacking LSU 34-14 five years ago. Last year was scary not just because of the 8-5 record; it was bad because of a 45-19 loss to a mediocre Tennessee, a home loss to Kentucky, and two straight losses to Florida by a combined score of 90 to 27. The APR is fantastic and the Attendance Score is always going to be great, but it's going to take wins over all the non-Florida East teams on a regular basis, and it's going to take a big win over the Gators once in a while, to hope for Mark Richt to finally be able to finish the drill and get Georgia to a national title game.
