    Lets see your lineup of the all time greats from The Flats. Lets do it Fantasy style so you'll pick:
    QB's x 2- so your top 2 QB's
    Wr's x 2
    RB's x2
    TE x 1
    Flex- Can be your #3 WR/#3 RB/#2TE
    PK x 1

    And Lastly, your all time great GT defense by the year.

    Normally, you would pick 6 more guys/Defense to be on your bench, but for time sake just drop your first 4 players out like March madness.

    QB Joe Hamilton, Shawn Jones
    RB Eddie Lee Ivory, David Sims (older one)
    WR Calvin Johnson, Drew Hill, Jimmy Robertson
    TE Whisenhunt
    Flex Jimmy Lincoln

    Defense: 1990 Coleman, Swillings, Rudolph, Willy Clay, etc
    But will accept any defense with Lucious Sanford on it as he was best defender ever.

    These ars always bogus.

    Too few fans that reakly know much about GT football.

    See how many mentions of 52 D.

    Indian Joe
    Strupper
    Fincher
    Big Six
    Stallings
    Shaw
    Rock
    just to mention few.

    Many will say "i wasn't alive". Yank-yank.

    Real fans will know about players from time immemorial.

    forensic,

    I like that you put David Lutz as a favorite tackle. I got to know him while we were in school. Great guy and he saved my bacon at the Mad Hatter one Wednesday night. So obviously he tops my list. Had a great pro career.

    My favorite receiver is Jucky Burnes. Played during the Pepper years. Rarely saw the ball, but we played high school ball together ( SWD state champs 1972!)

    Lucious Sanford as LB. Was at a game, Duke I think, and I thought he hit the QB so hard it killed him. Heard the pop in the East Upper Deck. Viscous lick.

    Best defense was O'Leary's 1990. Made plays when it counted.

    1952 National Champs were legit. Had to be with 6 All Americans of one kind or another.

    William bell should be in the conversation at RB. Dood was legit.

    I would think Clint Casselberry (sp?) needs to be in there someplace.

    QB:
    1. Shawn Jones (National Championship, #2 in our stats history, gamer)
    2. Joe Hamilton

    WRs
    1. Calvin Johnson.
    2. Kelly Campbell (#1 receiver when we would roll out 3 #1 receivers)

    RBs

    1. Eddie Lee Ivery. (he carried his team before stats got crazy for offense, and he still had crazy stats. Single season rushing leader)
    2. Robert Lavette (TD leader all time)

    TE
    Covington or Heller or Whisenhunt? I’m not sure here. Whiz was a really good TE when the offense didn’t have a ton going for it.

    OL
    Bill Curry had a super bowl ring. Pretty tempting.
    Michael Cheever?
    Mike Mooney
    Shaq Mason
    Nat Dorsey
    (OL is kind of tough to pick, here. Could just go the 1990 OL, which was an amazing group)

    K
    Butker (but tempted to take Manget or Sisson here)

    Defense
    LB
    1. Pat Swilling
    2. Ted Roof
    3. Keith Brooking
    4. Jeremiah Attachou

    DE
    Greg Gathers
    Marco Coleman

    DT
    Coleman Rudolf
    Kevin Battle
    Gotsis?

    DB
    Willie Clay
    Morgan Burnett
    Ken Swilling
    Dawan Landry

    (If you just picked defense from one squad, 1990 was deadly. They’d be good TODAY, but they might get more roughness calls on them).

    Good Point. He probably would have won a Heisman if it weren’t for WWII. Another guy who wasn’t at tech long but who I enjoyed watching in the pros was Dorsey Levens.

    Slugboy, your list is good but there are 3 guys (at least) in addition to ELI from the Pepper years that HAVE to be on the list imo...Kent Hill, Drew Hill and Lucious.

    Who do I knock off at WR and LB?
    (I have a feeling who would get knocked off at LB, and it’s not Swilling)
    I feel the weakest in putting together an OL and DT list. Not feeling great at picking a TE, either.
    I had to leave off sentimental favorites like Dez White. He played at a different speed than anyone else. If he had the hands of some of our other receivers, he’d be unstoppable.
