    I played against him a couple of times at the Uni Rec Centre in Alabama. He had a real sweet handle and reminded me of Skip in a lot of ways. It’s a shame…

    It was only a few short years ago that he was on top of the world. Makes you think how quick things can change.

    The Tuscaloosa paper today is reporting there’s more to it — seems Mr. Steele wasn’t happy with certain “decisions,” whatever that means. So maybe he’s not done. Worth keeping an eye on.
