    Kicker Nate Criswell out of Grinnell

    Weren't we recruiting this kid a few years ago before taking Cole Netten? I remember reading on here that CPR was at one of the Grinnell games late in the year watching him kick. Sounds like he ended up at Iowa Central and was named JUCO Special Teams Player of the Week by hitting 4 field goals in the Triton's 21-20 victory over Ellsworth (32, 45, 49 and 51 yards)

    Soooooooooooooo 21-12 = 9. They must have forced a safety.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Kicker Nate Criswell out of Grinnell

    What's wrong with missing him? Netten's not bad. Have to get the ball to the 35 yard line for him to even have a shot, and ISU hasn't done that the past few weeks.

    Criswell has had significantly more opportunity to show what he has than Netten. 17 FG attempts to Netten's 9. I wouldn't say either of them have had enough time to really show themselves off yet.

    Re: Kicker Nate Criswell out of Grinnell

    I thought Criswell actually considered walking on at one point. I could be wrong.

    *EDIT: Also, I could also be wrong on thsi, but I don't think that the kicking game is probably one of the last areas that needs to be criticized this year.

    THIS. Netten is a young, serviceable kicker. Not gonna likely play in the NFL, but we've had worse.

    Re: Kicker Nate Criswell out of Grinnell

    At least we allow our kicker to try for FG's - unlike Oregon!

    Re: Kicker Nate Criswell out of Grinnell

    No problem with Netten, why are you writing this kid off as a bust? He has made almost all if not all of the gimmies, made some tougher ones and missed some. Kids a frosh, he will only get better, don't understand the logic here. The only thing I might see wrong here is, we are carrying two scholarship kickers on the team right now, that's kinda puzzling to me

    Re: Kicker Nate Criswell out of Grinnell

    Exactly. Last week's holder gave him laces to kick. Netten is a good K.

    Ok, but he needs to work on his passing.

    If the ball gets placed correctly the only excuse to ever miss an extra point is if the offensive line runs back and blocks it. Especially on an extra point the laces don't matter because you should be driving the ball under the laces.
