Wasn't Brandon Ogletree and undersized player from Texas? He turned out Ok I though.
Well, you are right. Maybe we should be going with the Texas all-under 6' squad. Nothing screams success like "undersized".
I would take a whole team of Brandon Ogletree's over what we had last year.

I think what you would get is maybe a Brandon Ogletree and a bunch of guys who show that Ogletree is a standout for his size. If Ogletree's were available everywhere, he wouldn't be a standout.

See this is where you misunderstand my point. Ogletree was what he was because of his heart and toughness. I would take a whole team of him over what we had last year.

Biggest, most physical specimen on my basketball team (6'8" and chiseled 220 lbs) in high school couldn't rebound, couldn't jump, didn't know what to do when he had the ball, couldn't get his feet out of his own way, if he scored it was a mistake.
But, the coaches kept him on the team because of his potential and his size.
I have to agree that if a dude has talent (ogletree/pau'u) and are undersized.... Let Rudy play.
A bunch of prototypical NFL sized dudes means nothing if they have no talent or heart.
