That stat does not surprise me in the least. VERY frustrating. HOWEVER, I HAVE to add that after how poorly our kick coverage was WAY TOO OFTEN, I actually began to look forward to us kicking it out of bounds, because at least that way the other team started on their side of the field instead of ours ;-)
That kick to the corner is GREAT when you can pull it off, cause it narrows the field greatly, but you are correct in that we miss it a LOT.
We have not had good kicking teams since Succup and company.
