National rankings in Ara's 11 years at Notre Dame, in chronological order. Not cherry-picking the best ones, but all of them:

3,9,1,5,5,5,2,13,14,1,6

All of Ara's won-lost records (he inherited a 2-7 team):

9-1
7-2-1
9-0-1
8-2
7-2-1
8-2-1
10-1
8-2
8-3
11-0
10-2

I'm aware Ara was the constant recipient of complaints like "he can't win the big one." Oh, did I mention his 11 years included:

Two National Championships
1966
1973
Plus 1964 if he hadn't been shafted

I'm sure you know all this. But just in case you're suggesting there's any comparison between his situation and the current one, Ara also clinched that 1966 title by beating USC. Final score: 51-0.
