And if he hadn't suffered the neck injury, Charles Waggoner might have been better than Dickerson and James. At least it looked that way to me early in their FR seasons

I think it is also really important to factor in that with today's training methods in HS, the discrepancy between top recruits isn't as great. In the past, ED was an easy selection as the top RB in the country. But today, both the floor and ceiling have been raised on a lot of athletes, so things even out.

Getting that many of the top 100 back in 1979 was way more impressive and impactful than the same feat would be today, because of the depth that exists now in football.

Thanks for the Bump, Bus

You know, I don't think there are 20 teams in the nation that can pull in that haul, regardless of the circumstances. I certainly don't think any team in the newly constructed B12 could ever have a class like that.

It just reinforces to me the upside of SMU. We've done it in the past, we can do it again.

I just hope our leaders feel the same way and buy our way $$$ back to prominence.

Have to get to #78 to see a Texas recruit. And I don't recall seeing Aggie anywhere on that list.
