The other day I posted EJ's career stats as an FBS DC prior to his hiring at AU, arguing that he had a solid career and that his current performance was somewhat of an abberation. Here are those numbers again for comparative purposes:
EJ's total/scoring defense rankings since 1997:

Arky's two victories were by 21 in 2009 and 24 in 2011 - both were huge blowouts in which the game was never in doubt.
AU's wins were by 22 in 2010 and 17 in 2013, but were much closer than the score indicates, and if not for a couple of crappy calls and a few breaks, the outcome would have been ...

Winning 11 gsmes in a single year is a notable achievement, particularly in light of the the fact that the 11-game regular season didn't become mandatory for all Divison 1-A schools until 1973.
How many HCs in your school's history have attained that lofty plateau? Here's AU's list:
