    Don't want to "beat a dead horse" but...

    why can't we get a kicker. I really don't care if he can kick 40+ yard FG's as long as he (or she, for that matter) can make an extra point.
    It felt like a shot to the nads every time Jaden Oberkrom drilled a bomb easily

    p.s. sorry for the negative post on a road victory against a ranked team, great win go Clones, F'n
    awesome! Best post victory beer/beers in awhile!

    This belongs in the meltdown thread.

    It's terrible. We need a kicker.

    I've got two boys and I'm breeding them to kick as we speak. One can already drill a 10 yard field goal and he is 4!

    The last extra point it looked like Arceo was taking ALOT off his kick. Fine with that as long as it doesn't start getting blocked.

    The snap wasn't the greatest on that PAT iirc

    It wasn't, but the holder got it down. If the holder got it down then the kicker has to nail it. I think Arceo might be rushing his PATs a little bit.

    Should not matter. Bueker got the hold down fine. The kicker should not be effected by the snap.

    It wasn't but that shouldn't matter because the hold was more than good enough to make an extra point.

    Re: Don't want to "beat a dead horse" but...

    The amazing thing to me is the field goal was just a perfect flight with great rotation. It's like he hits it perfect or almost whiffs.


    It's all snark from here on out

    We have missed 3 PATs in 5 games. Unacceptable for a Big 12 program.

    If they don't want to pull the redshirt off of Netten, then I would like to see if Kirby could do the XP's and Arceo do the FG's
