"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

Public relations overall: 3.0/10
His initial PR slotting is "sincere lug". He gets a Golic. However as little as I know, he does not seem to be adept at keeping good Media relations. And this is about the next 3 years, not 3 days.
Staffing – Overall: 6/10
The Raven's DC is a coup.
On-field Track Record Overall: 6/10
Trying to read the tea leaves, he seems to turn around programs at an accelerating rate.
Recruiting – Overall: 3/10
Again next Rivals will tell. He doesn't seem to have a track record of recruiting HIGHER than his peers.
Purely numeric, UWAG category:
Chances of being Great: 1/10
Same analysis as you.
Chances of helping Dave Brandon keep his job: 1/10
"Defined as: Winning 9 – 9.5 regular season games, beating OSU 1 out of 3, New Years or later Bowl almost always, no Free Press Jihad. 7/10 is a sign that I’m giving in to optimism."
This is where I disagree with you the most. Your definitions here are contradictory. If we beat OSU only 1 out of 3 times in the regular season, we will NOT be going to BCS 90% of the time. With the new Conference Championship Games (CCGs) in P10 and B10, the 10 slots of the BCS will be taken up by CCG winners 6 times, non-AQs 1, and 2nd place in conference 3. To go 90% of the time, we have to add the times we are B10 Champs plus the times we are a STRONG #2 to equal 90%.
If we are losing to OSU 2 out of 3 times, they are the probably opponent in the B10 CCG. Thus we only get to a BCS game 33% of the time that we make the CCG. And if we lose 2 out of 3 to OSU in the regular season, we probably only GET to the CCG no MORE than about 50% of the time, which mean that we win the B10 about 15% of the time. Which is contradictory. The only way to go to a BCS game about 90% of the time is to beat OSU (or whoever is the 2nd best B10 team) about 2/3s of the time.
Thus I think the actual Definition of Helping Brandon Keep his job is: On average be as good as any other (read OSU or Nebraska) B10 team. That means being B10 Champ about 45% of the time, which means going to the CCG about 75% of the time and that means beating OSU about 2/3s of the time. Any less with OSU and other losses will knock you out of the CCG too much, since OSU is in the other division.
Chances of failure: 8/10
Defined as Being B10 champs significantly less than another B10 team (OSU). If OSU is B10 Champs 60%, M 30% and other 10% that would be a strong 2nd, but still failure. We need to be within 10% of the best program.
Even that may be setting the bar too low. If OSU wins 40%, M 30%, Neb 20% and Other 10% but M has no NC or even BCS Game in next 10 years is that SUCCESS???
Name for me a program you consider elite that hasn't been to a BCS Championship game?
