    ECU Placekicker

    Ouch - Dude misses four in the Liberty Bowl including 2 in the fourth quarter to take the lead/win, and a kick in OT.

    I hope ISU never again forgets the lesson that having quality FG kicker and P is worth spending 3-4 schollies out of 85.

    Re: ECU Placekicker

    i feel soo bad for that kid!! the coach did everything right. made sure his kicker is smiling and not thinking down on himself - nothing mattered! when you have a bad kicker you JUST DO NOT win close games!!!

    I agree. Watching that certainly brought back nightmares of past seasons.

    He wasn't a bad kicker. Weather conditions made it like he was kicking a block of ice though and then it got in his head.

    Crappy way to end your career.

    He'll probably go all Dolphin's kicker in Ace Ventura now...LOL

    This +1000. IMO, along with losing some really good assistant coaches, was the beginning of the end for McCarney. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to write that if we had a good kicker who could have made those kicks against Mizzou in '04 and Kansas in '05 that D Mac could still be a head coach today if he had been able to sustain the success that winning those games would have given us.

    That was nice, but I'd take two Big 12 North titles over a win over the hawks any day.

    Re: ECU Placekicker

    Are we seriously dogging a guy that no longer plays for our program but did put it his time and put his ego out there on the line for us week in week out and basically beat Iowa himself? Bygones anyone?? Apparently we are now so elite our ex-players can be trashed to make a point.
