The positive teams possess a high number of talented players, experience and continuity, while the bottom­end teams experience a number of injuries, have a lack of skill at several key positions or are enduring a run of plain bad luck.  This situation leaves the majority of teams in the homogeneous grouping to find a way to stay ahead of the curve and to strive to separate themselves from the curve and move up with the positive outliers.  Continuity of coaching and maintaining a solid structure are the factors that usually differentiate the teams that stay consistently on the positive side of the curve, compared to the teams that drift back and fourth from the negative to positive side of the curve from year to year.

Over the years, I have also been motivated by the efforts of Rich Brooks, who took his Oregon team to the 1995 Rose Bowl, and the accomplishments of Jack Elway, who led his San Jose State team to victories over both Stanford and California in the same (1981) season.  This team defeated two of the greatest teams of the era—the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs, the ultimate Super Bowl champions.  The first was the 49ers' beautifully executed 45­14 win in 1981 over America's team—the Dallas Cowboys.

Against equal competition, great coaches are distinguished by their ability to fully utilize the talents of their individual players.  To this day, I wonder why I didn't have him catch 10­12 passes a game and score three or four touchdowns, but I believe I was too busy proving the theories I had concocted at the age of 24. Another example of a player who was improperly used for part of his career was Craig Morton, later a great quarterback with the Dallas Cowboys.  Both players broke numerous records that year and brought California great success.
