    Speaking of our punter...

    In a different thread I brought up the "punter with mental toughness" joke.

    But then I remembered Saturday and that killer punt Brandtner had. The bomb he let go that just died at the 5 or 10 yard line.

    It was like he was playing darts with a football.

    On the year he averaged 41.23 yards per punt. IMO, not bad for a freshman - one that got better as the year grew older.

    Again, I'll agree. In the Texas Tech game he was our ONLY offense. I think he'll have a great future at ISU.

    What kind of awards are there for punters? Pk's have the Groza, but that doesn't cover Punters does it?

    I wonder what his average would have been if you took out a few of his inconsistant kicks early in the year. I know he had a few 20 yarders in there.

    He is averaging more yards per punt than a few NFL punters...as a freshman.

    I'm not sure if he walked on or not. I know he's a redshirt freshman though...soon to be a reshirt sophomore.
