Special Teams: kick returns
Do our guys realize it's legal to block on kick returns? They shouldn't (typically) be assessed penalties for this.
Seriously, anyone ever watch Sidney Rhodes, #30, on kick and punt coverage? This Wren High product who played at Western Carolina is absolutely fearless. He's not big but he's fast and he's in on the tackle nearly every time, sacrificing his body.
I watched the slo-mo of our kick returns (I wonder if our ST coach does this) and counted the same four guys each time who either didn't block at all, or gave an unspirited effort, allowing Shon Carson to get steamrolled.
Missed XP sucked...can we get through a season without one?
FWIW, Hull punted very well and Ard, when he kicks straight, looked good after that first debacle.
