    Re: Friday's practice- special teams.

    what theyre saying about tate has me excited. i like a defensive lineman with a chip on his shoulder. and when he has blocked 2 FGs this week...oh boy!

    good to see ARob came back from his injury.

    Boy... I sure wish we had Tate for another year. He must not had a RS to use when he came here, otherwise I would think he would have gotten one last year... he hardly played at all before getting hurt, did he?

    We are going to get one year out of him... and that's it. I think that's why he's playing so inspired thus far. He's only got one year to prove himself.

    "His (Guyer) 47-yarder came with the entire team and coaching staff circled around him making noise, hoping to rattle the freshman, although to no avail."

    Wow, think that is some pressure for the freshman?

    Not trying to be contrary, but pressure is when there are referees and fans in the seats and it means something.

    Field goals, either. Let's keep him to blocking punts.

    That is obvious, but what can you do to prepare with closed practices?

    Blocked field goal means they didn't score either. Same as a punt.

    But field goal attempts indicate that they drove far enough to feel like they might score. Punting would indicate that they aren't holding out any hope for scoring.

    So let's keep it to blocking punts

    Really, long as the opponents don't score, I don't care.

    Re: Friday's practice- special teams.

    I could have sworn that we've had 1 or 2 punts blocked this month by unknown players. So again, is that good or bad?
