The Steele Curse Is Alive: Andrew Steele Out For Season
I don't know who cursed the Steele brothers (probably someone connected with Auburn), but the news out of Tuscaloosa tonight is that Andrew Steele will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a stress fracture in his ankle. Obviously this is bad news for Andrew and the team, which is already woefully thin with players. We watched Ron Steele lose a potentially lucrative pro career to recurring injuries during his time at Alabama. Let's all hope the fates are kinder to Andrew going forward. While I didn't necessarily see a pro career in his future, I did think Andrew could develop into a solid 2-guard for the Tide. Bad news, indeed.
