But they’re so young! That’s the rallying cry you hear from Knoxville to Auburn to Gainesville to explain disappointing 2011 campaigns. There’s some truth to it, but there’s also an SEC outlier. Guess who?
Auburn played the most true freshmen in the SEC this season with 17 and was second nationally to Texas’ 18. Tennessee was tied for fifth nationally with 15 true freshmen playing. Florida and Georgia were tied for eighth nationally, each with 13 true freshmen playing.
I blame Bobo, of course.
