Maybe Texas is using Suddes to try to get Saban to come over. Stir, stir.

rumors are that he's actually a mole of Saban's to get better inroads to Texas recruits.

On a serious note, hope its not the Sabanization of UTx. Just a better talent evaluator

Suddes is going to have to work harder at TX to see the same level of success. TX rarely cuts scholarship players, oversigns, grayshirts or medical redshirts. He's also going to find that there is a much smaller staff at TX with much less on-campus recruiting presence.
