    Was that Peterson that actually asked Rhoads when he said "40 yd FGs and in"..... if he was talking about the distance of FG or where the ball was at on the field?

    He does realize that if the ball is on the 40 yd line, that is 57 yd FG, right? C'mon Peterson, you have to be smarter than that.

    Sounds to me like it will likely be Sam as the starter. Unless the video tape shows him something he didn't see in person.

    Sounds like the defense did well, which is kinda surprising, but it didn't sound like Wimberly or Nealy saw much action.

    You do realize that Netten kicked a 56 yarder in the Spring, right?

    Any updates on Dale Pierson? The news on Taylor is awesome, Meyers played really well at the end of last season so if Taylor is challenging him, that's great.

    Rhoads says he wants our kickers to be consistent and comfortable from 40 yds and in. Now if you think he means from the 40 yd line and in (which is a 57 yd FG), then you have different standards for our kicking game than any coach in America would have for their kicking game.

    I think Wally said that Pierson will give us some minutes on passing situations, so that is good to hear.

    I'm willing to take consistency from anywhere.
    I assume that he means 40 yard FGs on in, but it's a decent point that consistency from 50+ is an awfully high standard.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I saw a tweet that said "Cyclone Defense doesn't allow any TD's to first team offense."

    And the first thing that came to my mind was "Wow. Our offense is that bad?"

    I didn't say any such thing. Just pointing out that Peterson's question wasn't as unreasonable as you made it out to be.

    yep. i'd much rather have a kicker who was automatic on <40 yards than a sporadic kicker who could hit them from 55+. Just don't attempt the long field goals...

    At this point the defense has probably seen every play the offense is going to run, and knows them just as well as the offense. The defense is eventually going to overtake the offense, its just natural.

    It is raw footage from a post practice scrum. Clarification of comments is part of a reporter's job. Being upset about stuff like this is why no one takes you seriously.
