*The basic criteria for “alumni” used here is “Did the player in question appear in any games for the specific school?” Pitt doesn’t list Joe Flacco as a letterwinner and pro-football-reference only lists him under Delaware, but we know through official NCAA statistics, play-by-play, and contemporary media accounts that Flacco played in games that counted at Pitt.  (Update 11/28/2017: PFR has at some point fixed this for Flacco.  Still waiting for them to do the same for Nathan Peterman and Tennessee.)

Players who never appeared in a game (examples: Randy Moss, redshirted for his freshman season at Florida State then kicked off the team, or Lee Smith, dismissed from Tennessee for a DUI before his freshman year) are not counted towards those schools’ streaks as long as they played elsewhere. Nor are players like Whizzer White (law degree from Yale) or Shaquille O’Neal (doctorate from Barry University) who attended other schools for post-eligibility education counted towards those schools’ streaks. 

Players who didn’t play football in college (example: Antonio Gates) are counted for the schools that they attended while undergraduates.
