- very interesting group of debutantes at 2007 RG. Big one too, but there were more at the 2006 AO, which is odd considering how the feeling I had at the time was that the rankings were fossilized, and that "personnel turnover" in the #80-120 ranking range (where many Slam debutantes are ranked at the time of their first GS MD) is now much faster than it was back then.

And three of them were already seeded just a year later. Not bad at all...
