Boise State Leads the Nation in Experience

In major college football, experience is a necessary ingredient to success. While experience does not guarantee success, it certainly is a prerequisite for success at a high level. Boise State is tied for tops in the nation for number of returning starters, and the Broncos enter the 2006 season with a senior-laden squad.

It's time for the Boise State seniors to shine. The group that showed so much promise for the Broncos in 2004 as sophomores is nearing the end of their Bronco careers. Many are now three-year starters for Boise State.

In fact, Boise State is tied for the most returning starters in the nation@ (with UTEP) with 22 returning starters* that are projected to start once again, according to The Sporting News College Football magazine. Arizona has 20 returning as projected starters, Texas Tech and Arkansas have 19 each, Fresno State, Michigan, Arizona State, Rutgers, Nebraska and Iowa State have 18 coming back, Hawai'i, North Carolina and Clemson 17 while Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Minnesota, Stanford and Mississippi State have 16 each.  Nevada, Navy, Iowa State and Iowa have 15 apiece.

Even better for the Broncos, those 22 starters are split evenly with nine each on offense and defense, along with punter Kyle Stringer, kicker Anthony Montgomery and return specialist Quinton Jones, the starter for the Broncos at both punt returner and kickoff returner.

Experience should count for something, right? Another way to measure the "leadership factor" would be to count the number of seniors in the starting lineup. 

Coach Chris Petersen's squad is among the nation's leaders in that department as well, featuring 15 seniors* (counting offense, defense and specialists) this fall. Only seven teams in the nation can boast more than that on their projected starting lineups, according to The Sporting News. In addition to the 22 offensive and defensive starters, punters, placekickers, punt returner and kickoff returner are included in this statistic.

UAB is tops in the nation with 20 senior starters, followed by Stanford with 18, Baylor at 17 and then Michigan, Texas Tech, UTEP and Navy in a four-way tie for fourth. Boise State and Florida will feature 15 seniors their projected lineups, along with Clemson and Rutgers. Nebraska and Arizona State project 14 seniors. Other notables include Fresno State (13), Wyoming (13), Nevada (12), Utah (11), Hawai'i (11), Louisiana Tech (10), Idaho, Oregon State and New Mexico State with 8 each and San Jose State and Utah State (7 each).

The projected starting lineups for all of the nation's leaders in experience are shown below. Returning starters are shown in bold print and seniors are marked with an asterisk for easy identification.

 

@Projected lineups for the WAC teams are adjusted as closely as school athletic web sites show and by information known to BroncoCountry.  The lineups were given to The Sporting News in the summer by the 119 Division I-A coaches and any changes due to injuries, fall camp, dismissals, transfers, etc. are not reflected in The Sporting News data.

*As both the leading punt returner and the leading kickoff returner are figured into returning projected starters and senior projected starters, Boise State's Quinton Jones is counted twice, since he performs a dual role for the Broncos.

**Only one kickoff returner is listed by The Sporting News.
