Good programs develop players, bad programs don't. Attrition from year to year can set a team back. Losing those players before they have used up their eligibility can keep a program from reaching its potential. Below, I've listed for each team the make-up of the team by class and the percent of players by class in 2011 that are no longer on the roster in 2012 (ignoring seniors, of course).
A spike among freshman and, to a lesser extent, sophomores is often a sign of a coaching change: see Akron, Arizona St, Arkansas, Florida Atlantic, Kansas, Ohio St, Pitt, Southern Miss. Alabama sent half its team to the NFL.
[I am using official team rosters, and some teams have not yet updated their rosters from 2011. I have left these teams blank.]
