The Inaugural "Least Interesting Stat" Award

I hereby give the first award to the Yale Daily News for its sports page caption, Monday, September 26, 2011:

"STAT OF THE DAY 4: THE NUMBER OF YEAR SINCE THE FOOTBALL TEAM HAS SCORED 70 POINTS AFTER THE FIRST TWO GAMES OF THE SEASON.  The Bulldogs have scored 74 points after two weeks, a total that was last matched in 2007, when Yale put up 79 in what would become a 9-1 season."

For a slightly more invigorating use of statistics and Yale football, see my Yale-Harvard graphical exploration.  I need to update it with the last few years of results.
