Ted Miller has an interesting take on Pac-10's run defense. He basically throws up stats from last year's run defense and shows how the Pac-10's final standing was fairly consistent with the quality of run defense each team had.
So just for fun based on that theory he looks into how many starters are returning to each team's DL and tries to project this year's standing accordingly. Of course he is doing all of it in fun to start up a discussion. I wouldn't put too much stock into it but it's still interesting to read the datapoints. GO BRUINS.
