Process: My process of looking into a player is to first find a highlight video to get myself eased into what the player does well. After that, I’ll look into their gamelogs and start to search for game tapes on YouTube if a certain box score or opponent stood out. I’ll always watch a players tape vs Alabama or other big time programs to see how they played against the best of the best. Highlights are fun and exciting, but are not a good way to evaluate a player. We need to see the mundane details from watching every play from several games.
