I agree.

And this is where statistics will fool you.

According to Phil Steele's blog, we are 8th in the SEC and 78th nationally in "% of Yards Returning" with only 58.61% returning.

Production returning with in the SEC:
1. Arkansas - 84.10%
2. Miss St. - 80.01%
3. Auburn - 78.89%
4. Tennessee - 75.41%
5. Ole Miss - 69.85%
6. Kentucky - 61.86%
7. Florida - 58.75%
8. South Carolina - 58.61%
9. Alabama - 57.75%
10. Georgia - 48.64%
11. Missouri - 34.40%
12. Vanderbilt - 32.46%
13. A&M - 24.00%
14. LSU - 18.04%


When you first hear that stat you're like "oh crap" but IMO, I would rather have inexperience at the skill positions than the OLine

Just FYI, Clemson is #121 w/ 26.84%
