    Any thoughts on our kicker for next year

    I know there was talk during the season last year that it would more than likely be the incoming freshman, Cole Netten (Ankeny, IA). I was just wondering if anyone has seen him kick and if he is as good as advertised? It would be great to not have to worry about kicking a PAT let alone a 35 yarder.

    Also on that note, when are incoming freshmen able to join practice?

    Always have to worry about kicks, no matter who it is. Quinn Sharp missed that 35-yarder for Okie State and he's an AA.

    That's true, but missing what felt like every other PAT does not do anything to calm a guys nerves.

    2 walkons are battling for it...once Netten gets on campus he will likely get the job.

    That just sucks, he was great but he'll always be remembered for missing a kick that would have sent them to the BCS Championship game. Thank God I wasn't a kicker.

    Re: Any thoughts on our kicker for next year

    Netten is big for a kicker (I think about 200 lbs) with a strong leg that consistently boots kick-offs 60 plus yards. I've seen him in about 8-10 games and have seen him drill 40 plus yarders with ease, and also miss a couple inside 40. He's had a great high school kicking coach and has the potential to be a very good 4 year kicker for us.

    If you watch his highlight video, you will see that he did not use a tee during his senior season.

    I like the height he gets on his kicks.

    I feel like Netten really gets that ball up in the air so quickly from watching that video. Hard to believe he still gets all that distance on it.

    Same as a golf ball. You can get under it. Also, you are dealing with a smooth plastic surface and not the rough ground so less chance to snag your foot on something and screw the kick up.

    Picture yourself driving a golf ball from a tee and then from the ground. What is easier?
    Maybe not to that extreme, but you get the idea.

    PS: I'm not a kicker.

    PPS: I'm too slow at replying.
