Steele breaks down returning starters

Phil Steele has an interesting blog about 2010 returning starters in college football. Two MAC teams Ball State (21) and Miami, Ohio (20) have the second and third most returning starters in the country. Boise State has the most with 23. Steele also returns punters and kickers as starters.

With only nine starters back, Bowling Green has the second fewest starters coming back behind East Carolina who has eight. Coach Dave Clawson will have to replace seven starters on both offense and defense including All-American WR Freddie Barnes and QB Tyler Sheehan.

UB has 16 starters back – five on offense, nine on defense and its punter and kicker, which puts them behind Ball State, Miami, Kent State (18), Northern Illinois (18), Temple (18) and Akron (17) in the MAC.
