Let's compare to the NFL, where year after year, teams like the Raiders, Chiefs, Cardinals, Lions, etc, stockpile the elite talent from the top of round one, but teams like the Patriots, Ravens, Packers and Steelers keep on winning with "lesser" talent. In other words, the process is more important than the individual player. A player, like some of these 5* guys, who believes he is God's gift to football, is ready to start on day one and dominate based on his talent alone, are going to be turned off by the team-first approach of Coach Saban. It is disappointing when an elite talent chooses to go somewhere else, but we are far better off with a guy who is both a top talent (see our top 5 classes year after year) and who is a team first guy --a winner. Stay with the process and watch us win and watch them lose. RTR.
