Petrino vs Strong by the numbers

There has been a lot of talk about what we can expect from Coach Petrino versus what we had with Coach Strong. Many referenced Bobby's offensive genius vs Strong's defensive credentials. So I thought I'd compare the statistical records of the final season of both men as Cardinal coaches and see how they stack up. The results are most interesting. Enjoy and let the discussion begin.....or more likely, continue.
