    Who will replace Brandtner?

    Every one is agonizing over the possible loss of Sims, Austin Alburtis...What about Michael Brandtner(sp)? In 2010, there is not a bigger pair of shoes to be filled than his. His reliable leg moved the ball 44 yds automatically. Often, he boomed eyepoppers that completely reversed field position. Who the heck is going to step up to replace Michael? This is a really BIG question mark for the 2010 Cyclones.

    Re: Who will replace Brandtner?

    If Vander Kamp (Kemp?) punts as a freshman, the special teams could be in big trouble.

    He basically HAS to. Nobody else really.

    Rhoads has already stated that he's expecting him to be the guy.

    From what I have heard he is the one and only guy they are looking to. It spooks me but from what I heard they brought him in to start right away.

    Re: Who will replace Brandtner?

    I coached Kirby in his early HS days with punting techniques. He's a great kid with a strong leg who is also very coachable. I don't think he can fill in directly for brandtner, but has a shot to be better than Mike in a couple years. As long as he doesn't fumble snaps or shank one in a bad position he will be just fine.

    Brandtner punted all four years of his collegiate career, so it certainly isn't unprecedented.

    I think your remembering him a little too fondly, I certainly remember some struggles this past season. Oklahoma state especially springs to mind. He was a quality punter no doubt but by no means irreplaceable.

    Offering a guy a scholarship to punt at a D1 school before he ever punted in a high school varsity game is unprecedented. He's going to struggle in the wind tunnel that is JTS.

    I think Kuehl or Guyer will get the nod before Vander Kamp

    But he's got the tools, and that's what matters. Punting in a gametime situation isn't like learning another position - as long as his release is quick he'll be just fine.

    I seem to recall that he had the (immense) advantage of a redshirt season, before he started punting in live games.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Really? The best punter in ISU history and you make him seem mediocre? The kid had a few struggles but overall, he was the most consistent punter ISU has had and had one of the biggest legs in ISU history. You're one of those glass is half empty kinda guys arent you?

    No they wont.

    Kirby will be the punter. He has been doing real well in workouts thus far. He wont step in and be what Mike was last season, but he will certainly get the job done.
