I was reading Jon Chait's column where he stated this fact (rest are walk-ons). I know we have been talking attrition and everything, but I had not fully done the math and was more than slightly surprised when it is put in those terms. Being 1, 2 or 3 under does not seem out of the ordinary, 16 is ridiculous. Like the NCAA is crushing you under it's heel ridiculous. I want to pull up the picture Brian posted of Jim Leavitt at USF "Can I Haz This Many Playurz?". I mean holy crap, sorry if this is not news to anyone else. All apologies, but Jeebus man.
I did not make this headline up
