    It's time for Cole Netten to do the kicks!!

    Kirby VanderKamp played as a freshman, time for Netten to kick the FB and PAT's. Missing an extra point in D-1 is not acceptable.

    If Netten were head and shoulders above Arceo then I think he wouldn't be redshirting

    But could he really do any worse than Arceo?...

    We make the field goal and the extra point, and that changes the momentum and possibly the outcome of the game. So sick of always lacking strength at this position every year.

    PR took Vanderkamps redshirt off after one game when he was a freshman, the same will happen with Netten this week.

    This. It worked for Carl Gomez when Mike McKnight was being a total headcase. Arceo's misdeed PAT wasn't hooked just a little, it seemed like he wanted to kick it onto the hillside.

    Re: It's time for Cole Netten to do the kicks!!

    I think it's legal to punt the ball through the up rights on a PAT. I think this because Drew Brees did it in the pro bowl last year. Don't know if it's because it's the pro bowl or...

    Re: It's time for Cole Netten to do the kicks!!

    I am disappointed that we've missed two extra points. The one today cost us big time, but I don't know that blowing Netten's redshirt is going to solve the issues on the O. Too much pressure on him then. Ride it out with Arceo, preferably with our offense scoring a lot more TD's than this game.

    Why is it that a Big XII team can't have a kicker??? I just don't get it.

    Obviously it is up to coach, but I think he may be seriously thinking about lifting that redshirt on Netten. I think we will probably see Arceo benched before Jantz

    That's a drop kick, not a punt. It is a remnant of rugby rules left in American Football. You drop the ball like a punt but the ball has to touch the ground first.

    Re: It's time for Cole Netten to do the kicks!!

    I don't see a big reason to redshirt a kicker anyway, just recruit another and play the freshman. It's not like he needs to lift weights, either he can kick or he can't.

    Because this is such a Senior laden team, and a talented one at that, I could see CPR pulling this kids redshirt if he thought it would reslut in an extra win.

    Re: It's time for Cole Netten to do the kicks!!

    i'm in the camp that thinks if he was the better option, he wouldn't be redshirting in the first place.

    CPR knows that this is his best chance through 4 years to make some actual noise i.e. win 7-9 reg season games. he isn't going to jeopardize that by leaving a better option on the bench. if netten gives us the best chance to win he would have been starting from day 1.

    now that arceo has missed some bad kicks, he may have no choice but to put netten in there, but i don't think we should expect to see a huge difference.

    arceo doesn't seem to have much leg strength on kickoffs eithers.
