    The Golden Recruit....

    Scout.com: Scott Garber Profile

    Alright, maybe not so golden, but it looks like we're trying to get in on the #2 punter out there.

    Maybe he sees a chance to show off his leg in the future.

    Re: The Golden Recruit....

    In Tecmo Bowl, Sean Landeta can punt the ball 76 yards from the LOS with a full power kick....that is a bona-fide weapon. Whoever the sally is from Seattle can only punt around 43 yards maximum. What a loser.

    Case in point: New York is much better than Seattle.

    How the heck does a punter get 3 stars?

    mainly the schools giving him interest. if they are traditionally good/great programs the more stars a player gets. However, in most cases, it is because a player is GOOD.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    He looks like a "challenged" individual in that pic. Not flattering at all.

    #2? was he in the army all star game?




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: The Golden Recruit....

    Definitely need to get a capable punter soon to take Brandtner's spot. Whether that is a guy already on the team, or this guy, we need to know who that is this season even though we don't have to use him until '10. Ideally we wouldn't have had to wait until '08 to find out that Mahoney was our kicker to replace Culbertson. Having no overlap in your kicking game is cutting it too close for my comfort after the last decade. I like the guy in waiting to be known when THE guy is a senior.

    Chiz had a couple of guys, including Chad Powell, come in as the Brandtner backup plan.

    Re: The Golden Recruit....

    I dunno if anyone else noticed, but Guyer would practice punting before games and at halftime. If I remember correctly, Mahoney did double duty in High School and also played in the Shrine Bowl as a punter. I say, Iowa State has got 2 kickers on scholarship, one of them has to be able to punt the ball. ISU used 2 scholarships on kickers last year, no need to use another one this year on an untested high schooler, no matter how many stars he has.

    Re: The Golden Recruit....

    There was a stat on Guyer that he put the majority of his kickoffs into the endzone in highschool.

    Im assuming high school doesnt kick off from the same yard line that college doesbecause he never kicked off this year and we rarely got touch backs from....uh....uh our kickers...name escapes me.

    Mahoney? and yes, college kicks from further back than high school.

    Well, maybe we can get the best special teams in the conference. Dan would have liked that.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Really, you forgot the ONLY other Cyclone besides LJ to get All Freshman Honors from multiple sources? How about Honorable Mention All Big XII? Mahoney had the same type of stats in high school. His FG accuracy wasnt as good but his kickoffs were great. I remember reading on IowaPreps that he put one through the uprights on a kickoff at least once too. Not to take anything away from Guyer though, the kid was All State in high school which is quite an accomplishment. Word is, he had an injured hamstring or quad or somethin that kept him from being full strength last year. Boulware was a good Special Teams coach (it's no longer "Special Forces") and I trust his judgement with putting Mahoney in with full kicking duties.

    If you watched the punters in warm ups, you would notice that none of them looks to be a capable replacement yet. Hopefully during '09, you will see a guy stand out that is Brandtner's replacement. Again, I would like to see a one year overlap such that we don't cut it so close and gamble with any of our kicking game.
