One of the best hidden statistics I have found for determining the success of a college football team is the number of cumulative starts among its offensive linemen. The magic number for success is somewhere around 75.


If you're looking for a surprise team, Ole Miss leads the SEC with 101 starts among its offensive linemen, and they will be blocking for Texas transfer Jevan Snead at quarterback.

Maisel also noted the Fightin' Tigers of LSU, who had 95 combined starts among its offensive linemen.
