    College Football attrition rates at other schools

    I searched for attrition info across CFB and came back with basically just info on the SEC and the rampant oversigning many of their schools employ. I searched specifically for OSU, MI, MSU, PSU, Wisky, IL and Neb but did not find any condensed date, just random articles on single players leaving. I found 1 story on Mich having lost 6 players during the past season.

    During the spring of 2011 alone, Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, and Georgia each lost 5 or more players to attrition. This doesn't count players who left over the summer or fall, which according to this article, 'Bama lost several more in July.

    Michigan had 6 players leave the team during the past season.

    Miami had 6 leave during spring. It's no surprise these schools are some of the main culprits in OVERSIGNING. In 2009 Arkansas signed 37 players LOIs LOL....You can only give 25 scholies but even then, they only had 17 roster spots meaning spring practice was like an NFL training camp and kids were 'cut' and sent to JUCO or prep school.

    35 of Auburn's 84 signees from 2006-08 left the team (42%) Mississippi St had the same attrition rate. Chizic lost 7 of his 28 signees from 2009 class before they even hit campus due to qualifying issues!

    This info is from Aug 2009 so more attrition surely occurred since:

    Team Total signees Not with team Percentage
    AUBURN.... 84.................35................41.6
    MSU......... 84................ 35.............. 41.6
    Ole Miss.... 83.................30.............. 36.1
    Arkansas... 79.................28.............. 35.4
    UK .............79.................27................ 34.1
    LSU............78................ 26.................33.3
    USC............78.................26.............. ..33.3
    Tennessee...72................ 24................33.3
    Alabama..... 80.................23................28.75
    Georgia.......75.................17............... ..22.6
    Florida...... 76.................16.................21
    Vanderbilt....60................10................ .16.6


    Florida has lost 25 players since 2008 class. 23 players from 08-10 classes left (23 of 66 or 35%).
    11 of 22 (50%) from 2008 are gone 8 or 27 (30%) from 2010 are gone in just 18 months!

    For the 2008 classes Alabama has lost 15 of 32 (47%), Georgia 12 of 24 (50%), LSU 11 of 26 (42%).

    The majority of those schools can afford attrition because of the talent they get. We simply can not if we want to compete for Big 10 titles. But if you like 7-5, sure we can handle a couple of key guys leaving every year.

    I agree with this, but I feel like the d-line attrition has hurt our depth, and left us undermanned.

    Sad part is this statement is true for most of the posters who come out after problems. Their fingers are buried on their ears while they cry to the wind.

    Re: College Football attrition rates at other schools

    From old PC article -
    "And since we’re talking about numbers, here is something else to consider: Iowa combined to sign 67 players in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 recruiting classes, but 27 have either quit the team or transferred to another school.

    Eight of the 22 players in Iowa’s 2007 recruiting class left the team early, as did 11 of the 25 players in the 2008 class and eight of the 20 players in the 2009 class.

    You’d expect those three classes to fill the bulk of the 2011 roster because the players would either be in their third, fourth or fifth year in the program.

    Now you’re probably wondering how Iowa compares to other Big Ten teams with regard to attrition.

    Wisconsin is the program to which Iowa is most compared. But the Badgers have only had 12 players leave the team from the 2008, 2009 and 2010 recruiting classes, including just four from 2009 and 2010 classes, according to the current roster.

    On the other hand, four of the 22 players in Iowa’s 2010 recruiting class already have left the team, including two defensive linemen — Donavan Johnson and Anthony Ferguson — and linebacker Austin Gray."

    And as mentioned earlier, we do not over sign on purpose like most SEC schools that run off the kids they don't want. Attrition is killing Iowa and is one reason why we have so many walk ons in the two deeps.

    IA doesn't over sign for one thing. And the second thing is some of those SEC teams "cut" more talented kids than IA recruits. When you u almost under sign you can't afford this attrition.

    Re: College Football attrition rates at other schools

    One big thing you have to consider is Oversigning at those schools. Almost All those schools listed are located in the SEC, where the majority over Oversigning takes place. Also with the majority of the nations football talent located in the south, the avg quality of each player is higher.

    So you have you have these coaches/schools basically knowing that they will have some attrition each year, but because they oversign they have another scholarship athlete ready to go. If there is no attrition, they can just cut the least performing student athlete. Given that there general quality of player is higher, it it not noticed nearly as much.
