The odds of 10 lost coin tosses

[Ed. note: Bumped.]

The Hokies have had the incredible misfortune of losing all 10 coin tosses thus far this season...just how unlikely of an event is that?

The chances of losing all 10 coin tosses is 0.0977% for any one season.

The same odds would go for winning all 10 coin tosses as well but sadly that really has nothing to do with VT this year.

How often should we expect a team to have such poor luck?  Once in every 1023 team-seasons; or with an average of about 120 teams per year in D-1A, about every 8.5 years.
