It is much easier to win 10 games now than before

1) We play 13 games per year. 10-3 is the same as 9-3 during the 12 game era. it is like 7-3/8-2 during Ara's era.

2) We play more cubcakes now than every before. We are literally handed 7 to 9 wins per year by playing incredibly soft teams. Kelly's win rate should be 98% versus the pissant teams we play for half our schedule.

3) We play more home games per year than ever before. We play 7 or 8 home games per year every single year now. We used to play 5 or 6 alternating prior to Kelly.

In the era of 13 game seasons (and 14 if you make the title game), 10 wins should be the absolute mandated minimum number of wins per year. Any coach incapable of averaging 10 wins per season should be fired -- period.
