From my limited exposure to turnover ratios, primarily from reading Steele and this blog, my understanding is that a team with a poor turnover ratio one year (or a team with a very positive one) can typically be expected to regress to the mean the next, meaning either improving to roughly average or digressing to average. Yet we see M having three consecutive years of horrifying turnover issues. Has this happened before? I ask this because after today's horrifying display (on both sides to be fair) I am starting to believe that this turnover problem is not random, and must have something to do with coaching-what I am not smart enough to say. But I can't see how this is a random bad luck occurrence any longer.
