    Oooh, Texas loses 14 starters, six on offense and eight on a defense that wasn't that great. The 'Horns haven't lost more than 11 since 1998. Yet I am confident the Faithful are convinced all those new starters "got plenty of snaps last year," are all blue-chip "can't miss" players and the team will not miss a beat...

    Interesting list. I think his numbers are off by about 3-4 starters on UGA though.

    Really strange with the “total starters number” for Georgia, given Georgia was extremely young last year with 66% of the team freshmen and sophomores.

    I can think 7 returning starters on offense and can only think of 4 starters lost on D so I'd put the number at at least 14 + P & K

    He has UGA returning 6 and 6. He probably counted losses on O of Galliard,Nauta,Riley,Hardeman,Holyfield(or Godwin). And on D he probably counted losses as Ledbetter,Walker,Taylor,Patrick,Baker.

    I think the list must have a very strict definition of returning starter.

    UGA is listed with 6 offensive and 6 defensive returning starters.

    UGA has on offense (3+ starts):
    OL Wilson - 14 starts
    QB Fromm -14 starts
    OL Kindley - 14 starts
    OL Thomas - 13 starts
    OL Mays - 7 starts
    WR Simmons - 6 starts
    RB Swift - 5 starts
    WR Holloman - 5 starts
    OL Hill - 4 starts
    OL Cleveland - 4 starts

    On defense:
    DB Reed - 14 starts
    DB Leconte - 13 starts
    DL Rochester - 12 starts
    DB Campbell - 11 starts
    DL Clark - 10 starts
    LB Grant - 8 starts
    DB McGhee - 7 starts
    LB Rice - 5 starts
    LB Crowder - 4 starts
    DL Davis - 4 starts
    DB Stokes - 3 starts

    My count would be 4 OL starters (56 starts), 1 QB starter (14 starts), 1 RB starter (leading rusher, 5 starts), 1 WR starter (11 starts) returning. 3 DB (48 starts), 2 DL (26 starts), 2 LB (17 starts) starters returning. That would be 14 rather than 12. Not a huge deal... but it's kind of odd how this was counting.

    Counting starts is difficult with starts split up at many spots throughout the course of the season. For all 130 teams I go through each position group for every team and count the starts(not starters) returning and leaving when I study Phil's mag. Brad may have just copied Phil's returning starters numbers or another mag or he got them from SIDs and conferences. In the summer and preseason I have my own set of returning starters on O and D for all 130 teams and for the majority of teams I have a different number of returning starters than what Phil lists. I'm 5 days away from having my hands on Phil's mag.

    I can agree with Brad on UGA's offensive returning starters. On defense I would disagree with him. And thats not even figuring in a guy like Monty who was the starter at ILB but due to injury had to miss time.

    P.S. Be nice to get David Marshall back this season.

    An interesting stat but doesn’t necessarily reflect the true nature of the teams. Almost all the top tier teams have many players that have a multitude of big game experience that just weren’t designated as starters.

    Returning starters, depth and recruiting has to be taken collectively.
