    Every time Mike O'Connell is out to field a punt...

    I think Chizik is trying to get us to turn it over. Just kidding, but not really....

    He is a scary returner, but only for our guys. Maybe the American Heart Association is funding his scholarship.

    maybe that was why we never forced the offense to punt...

    Hardee's probably wanted more punts.

    More punts=More fish sandwiches

    Re: Every time Mike O'Connell is out to field a punt...

    Do they even stress this in practice? It's so bad that I can't even see a JUCO team having these issues at PR. From the 50/50 fumble ratio to having two guys stand back there watching a returnable punt tumble inside our 5 yd line.

    In the small chance we actually stop teams on defense next year, our punt return unit will surely have to deliver to be in ball games. Seems like a tall order from where we are now.

    Aren't we specifically recruiting a punt returner specialist? I really want to be able to stay off the fish sandwich diet, I could go the rest of my life without one at this point. Please be a good b-ball season!

    Re: Every time Mike O'Connell is out to field a punt...

    Our special teams took a step backwards today: fumbled punt return, kickoff returns to the 15, poor punt coverage, poor kick coverage, and a blocked field goal.

    The worse part was on the muffed punt he had 20 yards of open running space infront of him.

    Baby steps, guys.

    Remember last year.....all we did was put a 6'5" receiver back there to fair catch punts. And more often than not, he would just let them roll down to the 5 yard line without touching them.

    At least this guy will attempt to catch the punts and run. Again, baby steps.

    I'll take Blythe's fair catches over the plethora of fumbles any day. Why the hell couldn't RJ or LJ, or ANYONE who can catch be the punt returner?

    Just when you unplug the toilet, the bathtub plugs up. When you unstop the tub, the sink overflows. When you clean up the sink overflow, the garbage disposal jams. When you get the chicken wing out from the disposal, the furnace quits working due to a loose wire. You fix that and the power cuts out. When the power comes on, the security system refuses to turn off. I think that succinctly summarizes our football season.

    I've been wondering why RJ hasn't been returning punts for the last 3 years.
