    Punter make 2 tackles?

    I just watched replay on Clonezone and didn't realize that Brantner(sp) made two potental score stopping tackles on punt returns. The punter should have maybe one tackle a season. Of course the thing that really makes me made is that the Clones got called for illegal blocks on kickoffs twice and KSU never got called once on a kickoff or a punt. KSU has always had one or two illegal blocks on every kick.

    It is college football, a hold or illegal block could be called on every single play. You just have to call the really really bad ones.

    Well at least he made the two tackles. I'm watching the replay now and I thought he did a good job on the first tackle.

    That's because Brandtner is by far the most mentally tough player on the team.

    Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

    Actually, I think it was "he has the best mental toughness in the country".

    Ahh, good times...

    I thought he did a great job on the first tackle. He really showed good speed closing on the tackle. It just bothers me that the last line of defense on punt coverage has to make the play twice in one game.

    Ahhh . . . But at least he made the play. It wasn't a special teams disaster.


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    He wasfighting to keep the net yardag at a net weight yards on the play. He des look lik he tackled in the past. Did not Josh Griebhan make a tackle on a kickoff also?
