    Looks like LSU got hit the worst.

    Tennessee got hit hard, too, as did Clemson and myself.

    Notre Dame lost some good guys, too, and given their ratings, I would have expected at least two of those juniors to stay.

    Bama's too loaded to generate any sympathy from me, even though they lost some decent guys.

    Georgia Tech seems to be the big winner. Makes me believe in karma after seeing how hard they got hit last year. No one leaves, and at least two good transfers come in. Not a bad day for the Ramblin' Wreck. Florida didn't do badly either, getting a couple of transfers to balance the two guys leaving.

    All in all, it looks like a pretty fair distribution. Guys who had big seasons had big losses, for the most part, and guys who struggled a bit got some help.

    This is why I argue not to sway, even when I lose a guy I really really wanted back.

    We get an extra scholarship this year for every guy that leaves early right?

    You can recruit up to 75, so yes, guys leaving = more scholarships to give.

    Next year will be the same, only the number will be 70.

    You pulled one of my corners, though. I needed that kid, too. I only have three guys now, and three incoming freshmen - all three star guys. Gonna be thin next year.

    True, he will definitely help out my secondary. My running game would have been amazing next year if he would have stayed
