Not a great kicker but a pretty good one. I think Tyler Hull is about the same as punter

We need to go get an aussie punter like LSWHO does. It seems to be a no-brainer. Go find a rugby guy.

our kicking was fine through the year. yesterday specifically was a bad day but not bad enough for me to think we need a new kicker..now, punting is a different story.

Tyler Hull had a very strong 2nd half of the season.

Really pleasantly surprised by his kicks yesterday. He's not the guy from Florida, but he looks good.

I don't remember exactly what game it was, but we suddenly went from kickoffs to the 10 to kickoffs for touchbacks. That was a great improvement that we've needed for a long time.

There is the off season to improve things, but SOS will never be fond of FG's. All that is the afterath of a blown chance to get a TD or to extend the drive on the way to a TD.
Spurrier said he looked shakey after the first two but if it came down to it he would have kicked it. He said that he told him after the blocked one to calm down and just kick it like you do in practice.

For those of you that think we're in good shape in the punting department, check the stats...Dead last in the SEC in average. And yeah, we didn't pin teams inside the 20 often and if there was a stat on hangtime, I'm pretty sure we'd rank near the bottom as well. Our punting is by far the biggest eyesore on our team. Some stats for those interested...

I don't think St Germaine was very highly recruited for someone who seemed to boom like he did on those highlight vids....maybe there was not much there....only a frosh tho....miss ole Succop

I can not count the number of times our punt return guy is running backwards to field punts during the game. I do not recall ever seeing the opposing return guy going backwards.

Yeah the whole kicking game was horrible for most of the season but seemed to get better in the last three or four games (but still not great).
