    Football player retention

    Bored needed something to do. No guarantee on accuracy

    Year - Freshmen recruited - 2013 team status

    2009 - 18 Freshmen - 4 Sr (graduated as starters) - 9 RSr, all possible starters - 5 left early

    2010 - 17 Freshamn - 3 Sr, alll possible staters - 12 RJr - 2 left early

    2011 - 17 Freshamen - 3 Jr, all possible staters - 14 RSo - 0 left early

    2012 - 21 Freshsmen - 21 RFr - 0 left early

    To paraphrase CPR - it is not the players you missed on recruiting, it is the players you got and missed judged. Retention and redshirting should lead to a better developed and mature team on the field next year and hopefully a better winning record.

    Re: Football player retention

    The numbers may not be 100% but the point is accurate. The key to our success is identifying players who can develop and then keeping them on campus. If our "stick rate" can be better then other schools in the Big XII, then we will consistently have more experienced players and can regularly compete with schools who recruit players with more "stars"

    Smith, Mattison, Bennett, Pavlenko were all losses or misses. No wonder we are thin at LB.

    His point is valid though. Outside of LB our retention has been great.

    Re: Football player retention

    I am hoping CPRs "all in" is more than just a slogan and they are "all in" until graduation. We had more seniors on this years team and I hope it is because CPR emphasizes the importance of keeping all his recruits until they graduate. I loved Coach Mac but his retention with 5th year seniors was horrendous.
