    Punt Returns

    Anyone notice our punt block (attempts) and returns are non existent? Everyone standing around at the wrong end of the field. Why not drop everyone off the line of scrimmage and set up return?

    Re: Punt Returns

    We do a safety return the majority of the time. We're just looking for possession of the ball after preventing a fake attempt.

    Irrelevant! We should always return the ball when 6 guys are standing around the returner. Seriously, people, get knowledgeable before ********.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Re: Punt Returns

    New topic of punt return after today's game:

    Why do we now put two guys back, at the same distance but opposite sides of the field, and neither attempts to catch the ball unless it's within about 5 yards of where they start? Even when KSU was punting into the wind, we managed to let the ball sail 20 yards past us and started around our own 4-yard line.

    In past years we've put two guys back, staggered by 10-15 yards and had decent success with it. I think it was '09 or '10 when we had Lenz and someone else back, one of them faked out the cover team and the guy who really did catch the punt got a long return out of it.
