Alabama offensive guard Athony Steen pitched the equivalent of 14 consecutive perfect games: no penalties and no sacks all season. It wasn't enough to get him much recognition on a stellar offensive line, however.
With his long and historic tenure as a leader of this Alabama team, AJ McCarron realizes and embraces the notion that, in the new season, he will shoulder so much more of the responsibility and accountability for his Crimson Tide.
With so much change to its offense, it seems Texas should move on to a backup QB who best represents the future: Connor Brewer. But Mack Brown isn't convinced Texas or Brewer is ready, so Case McCoy's role will continue to muddy the waters.
Much like his senior season, Denard Robinson's final game didn't go how he would have liked in a 33-28 loss to South Carolina in the Outback Bowl, but how Robinson was going to be judged in college would not have been changed anyway.
