    Can we kick?

    Anyone have any info. on what our 2 freshman kickers have been up to the past 9 months.............at this point I'm not so focused on PAT's and field goals......I just want to see some booming kickoffs into the end zone. Does anyone live across the street from their hometown practice field?

    They both kicked in the shrine game

    Guyer kicked every ball into the back of the endzone on kickoffs from the 40. He will kick from the 30 in college.

    Guyer did have at least one field goal blocked due to poor blocking I heard.

    Mahoney had one kickoff into the front of the endzone. Mahoney didn't kick much due to the score.

    I took my father-in-law to the Oklahoma game last year. When Shaggy lined up for a field goal, he said, "Why does everyone look nervous. Field goals are easy points."

    I told him to just wait a few seconds, and he'd probably see. Sad to say, he saw.

    Two words: Mike McKnight

    Holding your breath on PATs is much worse than holding your breath on FGs.

    Growing up watching Rob Houghtlin and Mike Gillette, as well as Mark Moseley, I always assumed placekicking was automatic. Well, that assumption was wrong.

    I think missing those two probably destroyed the poor guys confidence. He did pretty well in the Iowa game though...

    We could do a lot worse than Shaggy. Unfortunately we also could have hoped for better. When I was in school we had Ty Stewart. That guy had a huge leg. I think I remember seeing him hit like a 58 yarder.

    You're right (about Ty, too). Shaggy wasn't the worst, but he was just so inconsistent. I love boring predictability much more than surprises.

    Amen. I want someone automatic inside of 40 yards and hopefully with a shot at up to 50.

    Would you consider 80% as "automatic", or not quite?
