I did include kids who were signed and didn't make it, but you are right they are different. I will also assume that Rich Rod will adjust to the admissions office, or at lease communicate better.
I also admit that I didn't look at attition rates between eras. (I wish I had time for that, the wife kids really limit my quality mgoblog time.)
It just seems that we are loosing good talent and I do have a concern over it. First of all, I want these kids to come in and do well both on and off the field. Second, we need players. Turner's failure to launch is a problem that will haunt us this year and next. RB is OK for now, but who knows what develops down the road.
I am not saying that we turn the place into Club Med. I just hope that Rich Rod takes a look at this situation and makes those changes that can be made. These are kids making a huge transition. There is a balance between kicking their behinds and welcoming them to the team.
