    Connor A. did a pretty solid job of PATs and FGs last year, but he did not do the kickoffs. So, who is the guy for those this year. Sorry, could not find the 2 deep...

    You didn’t hear about the Asian guy we brought in to take the kickoffs? He should be solid. His name is Hoo Fu King Kaes

    I am honestly a bit worried about special teams. There's been much talk about the defense, the o-line, QB, replacing Butler & DM. Seems like special teams is forgotten.

    I felt last year special teams was pretty average overall. It didn't generally hurt ISU, but they didn't "win" that phase of the game either.

    Hopefully everything gets a notch better, then it would be a clear advantage vs most opponents. If it gets worse, it could very well cost them a game or two. I don't expect it to get worse, but I think its worth keeping an eye on.

    I saw that was the case somewhere, which is what I would expect. I was more concerned about kickoffs, because CA, while accurate, did not have great distance on his kicks.

    According to Cyclone alert, kickoffs are Paddocks job as of now. Narveson has a higher ceiling, but needs to be more consistent. Narveson could have job by end of season, but today it is Paddock. Narveson has the capability of kickoffs, placekicking, and even punting (if needed). So he may be the future of both kickoff and placekicking at ISU.

    Connor has said in interviews that he has gotten a lot stronger in the off season and his comfort zone on field goals has extended from around 45 yards last year to around 50 to 53 yards this year. If he had to kick off I'm sure the added strength would certainly help.

    Having quality capabilities in all three can be a big plus when you are trying to get to playing on Sundays. Most NFL teams carry only two kicking specialists - the PK is also the back up P and the P is the back up PK. If you are an asset at both - and have a strong leg for kick offs - you have a better chance of making a team - at an incredibly difficult position to break into.

    The old special teams coach left after he was demoted. It's on Campbell's radar for sure.

    Seems like our key guys are back there, so we should be better if anything.
