The funny thing about Tuitt is he actually WANTED to come to GT, so he wasn't shucking us to get an anthropology degree at ND. Believe it or not, there are kids of Tuitt's caliber on and off the field who are actually willing to do the work.
Now momma on the other hand...
Yes sir. There are kids out there. Say 40 in each state, 2000 overall. We need but 7 or 8. Gotta identify them, target them, schmooze them, sell the degree, sell the city, sell the school, sell the UNIQUENESS of the experience. Replace 7 no-stars with seven 3 or 4 star recruits every signing day and you are there. Not going to get Calvin, or Tuitt, or Hershel, or Suh often, but if you got those seven, those 28 better players across four years, you would win more games. Win more games, you attract more Calvins. It isn't rocket surgery. It's recruiting. Unlike Troy, or MTSU, or Memphis or even Texas Tech, we've got something very special to sell. Where the hell is MIT ranked this pre-season. How many School of Mines alumni in the NFL?
