At some point this season, I started calling Steen "Big Country," in response to how different his personality was from Fluker and Jones on either side of him. I enjoy yelling "Bow up Big Country" at my television, so I'm glad he's coming back.
This was my favorite part of his statement.
Great example of why we have such success developing players year-to-year. The coaches aren't the only ones doing the developing.We are also losing two great seniors this year and this will give me the chance to help get players ready for their new roles in 2013.
Awesome! I'm going to steal this from you next season.

Steen probably graded out better than Cyrus K the last two games but received no attention whatsoever.
This is a big deal. It will help the oline a lot next year.
Good news and the best decision for A.S. I guess Ryan will be the center for 2013

He's nasty in the trenches. Some on the recruiting board have bad mouthed Mississippi kids, but Steen and Norwood have been solid.
I think he will really stand out next year. He was one of our most consistent and nasty linemen this year but he was overshadowed by Fluker (literally) and Jones next to him
That's the paradox of success. The moment you stop to enjoy it, you are in trouble. You have to keep moving forward. It's not what you have done that's important. It's where you are going.— Alabama Coach Nick Saban
