Lots of JUCO transfers here, but very little freshman attrition; on the other hand, the overall attrition pretty much equals the transfers. So, would the way to read this be that whatever freshmen make the team they keep for 2 years, then dump in favor of transfers? (and of course it doesn't show how many show up in the fall, right?). The EADA numbers for 2018 are all 35 or under, I notice.
I'm still pretty confused about overall attrition rates; what does a number of 17 or 20 mean (not here for ASCC, but in the Pac 12, for example)? That 20 players from the previous year's roster did not continue? Does that include drafted players? But in some cases there is high overall attrition but low numbers drafted.
CBI, all this info is really interesting, can you do a separate posting telling people what they might particularly focus on if they have particular interests? (i.e. for D1, the EADA number vs. roster; or the # of transfers, or how it works with attrition)
The freshman attrition rate is based on players listed on the spring roster the previous year but are not listed on the current year roster, thus I would not try to directly link JUCO Transfers to freshman attrition rates. What I might do instead is look from the perspective player channels. What percentage of players are recruited from High School or other colleges?
As for Player Attrition, overall attrition rate means any player that was on previous year's roster, that is not on current year's roster.
