    Kirby "My Man" Der Kamp

    All I've got to say is that when games start getting closer and more winnable for us, our punter, who has been the Chris Williams Cyclone Player of the Game for the last two weeks, is going to give us huge field position advantages to help us win. For being a question mark after Game 1, punting sure doesn't seem to be a problem for us anymore. He's averaging 45 yards a punt, and the guy seems to know how to get and keep the ball behind the 20.

    Will be critical once we have a defense.

    It is possible Kirby's eligiblity will be up by the time we field a good defense. Going to take some time to get the D to where it needs to be.

    He has been great. So, where are we now in terms of punt return average and national ranking in this category?

    Re: Kirby "My Man" Der Kamp

    Its sad that pretty much the MVP of the team last year and this year have been our punter. Brandtner was a big reason behind our sucess last year, Vander Kamp at least is giving our defense field position to work with although it just has meant they are on the field much longer too giving up 80+ yard drives.

    Hopefully not, when a d coordinator head coach it should be the first thing to turn around ala Nebraska and pelini. Hopefully... :)

    Re: Kirby "My Man" Der Kamp

    It helps Kirby that the team gives him great field position for hitting boomers. He is usually punting from inside our 20 YD line. He does seem to have a knack for getting the ball to die on the 10 though.

    we now rank 105 in punt return defense. We were number 2 before Utah but Utah killed us. FWIW, OU only treturned 2 for 16 yards out of 7 punts. The biggest thing is we have only allowed 13 returns this year but have punted 34 times. Kirby ranks 13th in ave distance and only two ahead of him have punted more

    Don't look at #92


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Our offense needs to really commit if they want him to win the "Total Punting Yards" race. The Memphis guy has a pretty good lead on him right now.
