A cool piece on the actual effect of returning starters on defensive output may be found over at Buckeye Commentary, complete with sheeny shiny graphs indicating that returning starters on defense does and doesn't affect your total points allowed, but does show a slight statistical swing in terms of yards allowed. Just one team, of course, but if you get nothing else out of the article you'll at least get some quantification of the fearsome job OSU's been doing on the defensive side of the ball in the Sweatervest Era.
