Chan Gailey Equilibrium: a mathematical figure equivalent roughly to 7-5
"If Chan Gailey plays you in anything, by the way, he will win exactly 58.3 percent of the time. We all have talents. Chan’s is having a mathematical tendency associated with everything he attempts.
problem hasn’t been tight or loose scheduling–it’s been Chan Gailey,
who will get you the same product every single time no matter if he’s
fielding a squad of Nandralone-fueled sex offenders or a team of
sleep-deprived midgets. Either team would lose inexplicably to UNC
before handing Miami a shocker loss to finish at CGE, because that’s
what his brand of football is designed to do."

The CGE is 7 wins, not 58.3%. Chan's teams have
won 7 games in each of his four years at GT. If it takes losing a bowl
game to a team which is supposed to be inferior to get there, then that will happen (as it has twice). The losses were 5 the last 2
years, but they were 6 the first two years.
If Chan's team wins 7 again in '06, he should be named "Mr. Consistency." But, GT fans will not be happy.His goal is obviously to win more than 7 games. With a 12-game schedule and a bowl every year [GT has attended 9 straight -- only 5 other teams have done as good or better], GT fans expect 8 and up, and would like to see 9 or better (something O'Leary teams did only 2 out of 6 years).
