    What itís like to be a five-star in Alabamaís Process, from the players who know

    Pretty good article from The Athletic. Note: you can create a 7 day trial to read instead of paying for a subscription.

    You​ were​ a five-star recruit.​ Every big-name college football coach​ in​ the country​ wooed you​ to sign with​ their​ team.​ You​ had​ played​​ in a high school all-star game on national TV and took home ďAlpha DogĒ honors as the most impressive guy there because you were so dominant in the week of practices and the game.

    And then you get to your first career SEC game. Your team is crushing the other squad. But you expected that. Youíre with Alabama now.

    Hereís what you didnít expect. Itís 59-7, and the coaches still havenít put you in the game.

    Youíre Eyabi Anoma, and at that moment when you looked up at the scoreboard that September night at Ole Miss, one cold realization came to mind: ďWeíre up by over 50, and man, Iím not trusted that much to go in?Ē
    "I don't know what class is but I can tell when one has it, you can tell from a mile away"
    -- Coach Bryant

    "We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."
    -- Nick Saban day after beating Clemson

    That can mess with your mind.
    IMO: Unless your gonna Redshirt a player... Coaches dropped the ball, by not allowing their future starters to enter a run away game. Unless the coach thought there was a problem with the player.
    Same answer... It's better to give the players some time on the field. Get em some
    experience.
