DTN Class Project | Football Attrition Ratees from 2007 through 2011

I need some help. I was asked by the folks that run the Iowa blog, Black Heart Gold Pants, if I could run the numbers on the players that have left the program prior to graduation. In this bidness, we call it attrition, and so over the weekend, I put together a few tables, but I wanted to make sure that the information was reasonably correct.

I didn't look anything up, I just did this off of memory as I was running short on time and was curious if you all could be my fact-checkers. I pulled these lists from Rivals. You can feel free to ask about different things, but more than anything else, I want to make sure that this is somewhat accurate. I did want to point out a couple of things, the first being that I didn't know how to classify Jacob Karam as he didn't finish at Texas Tech, but he did receive his undergraduate degree. I'd hate to consider a player that graduated as being part of the attrition column, but I will if that's how everyone else feels.

I've also made assumptions about some players and the fact that they graduated. I don't really know if a player graduated, but it was my way of stating that they finished their careers at Texas Tech. I was also unsure as to how to deal with a player that never even qualified, but signed a LOI. Was curious if they should be considered as part of the attrition rate even though they were never on campus?

All of the tables are after the jump.
