    I think he was talking about the class at Alabama that had Mark Ingram and Terrence Cody in it, as that was where he worked with Suddes before... He left Tech (after putting together the great 2007 signing class), and moved to Alabama where he put together one of the most ballyhooed classes ever.

    When was Charles Dudish? He would be considered the highest ranked recruit ever for GT if such a thing was ranked during his day.

    I would think that whatever class that allowed us to have SIX All-Americans on the field at the same time in 1952 would have to be the best class in GT history.

    I think it was just his phrasing. He said he was with Suddes putting that class together in 2007, which is true, since most of the actual recruiting would have been done in that calendar year for the 2008 class.

    A better judgment of where this class ranks in GT history won't be possible until at least a couple years down the road, but I think an argument can be made that this is the most impressive class we've ever had when put into context--transitioning out of an option offense, 3-9 season, etc.

    What’s even more interesting is Baylor hasn’t cracked the top 30 in recruiting and has mostly been in the high 30s the last few years.

    The coaching staff definitely has an additional selling point right now - better odds of quick playing time due to the scheme change. After a few years of some solid recruiting and running the same system that selling point may dry up. Hopefully, the selling point will then become - come play for a winner.

    What happened with Wiggles? Is there any chance Marco Coleman can lure him back?

    He made a statement on Wed (or Tuesday) that his recruitment was open and he wouldn't be signing until Feb.

    Illinois flipped a DE from Maryland so they might not have space for him now and GT seems the same way. I hope the kid didn't "screw" up and it is just normal stuff and he finds a good home.

    Seems like he wiggled his way right out of a spot on two different teams.

    I remember seeing some local "special" from back then showing him in an Avondale game where he had dislocated his shoulder and the doctor on the sideline trying to put it back in. I couldn't have been more than 12 or 13 but boy do I remember Dudish writhing in pain like it was yesterday

    Maybe his grades became an issue late in the process.
