is the kicker position causing us to lose game(s) though? you can make the argument that kentucky could have been a win with better kicking, but the offense is the bigger problem. maybe the offense will explode next year and the kicking game will cost us more games, but im hopeful white will improve significantly like he did over the course of the year.

white was 9-10 from inside 40 this year and he has a strong leg. also after missing his first 6 kicks beyond 40, he was 3-6 to close out the year. its something i think you address on a year by year basis, and this isnt the year to go after a kicker, we have bigger issues.

White is going to be fine. If you look closely at most of his misses, the issues were the holder.

The snaps were inconsistent and the holds were largely leading to misdirection. Everytime, the laces were pointed in exactly the direction of the kick(which was usually outside right).

It seems trivial, but the hold is half the process in terms of trajectory. Fix that, and the kid has a higher percentage.

He's got the leg, no doubt.

We can always give a scholarship to a holder.

While that was a joke, I agree that with some serious work in the off season by all involved, things ought to improve.

White was accurate with short and mid-range kicks, off just a hair on longer kicks. Some of that is the law of averages, some is his accuracy, some is on the holder. Leave him and the holder together so that can develop chemistry and we are set for a while.

What he definitely has is a strong leg - not many kicks returned.

If not, we have 25,000 undergrads, about half male.

12,000 kids--someone's got to be able to kick field goals.


And with Trey Dean, how many defensive backs/safeties do we need?

We have room for 2 out of Horn, Samuel and Mukuamu. Two of these guys would have to turn us down before we would take Dean.

Dean is one of the top 250 players in the nation. If you think we wonít find room for him regardless of who else commits, I beg to differ.

if you remember Dean was all over the place with where he wanted to go. so much so that he didn’t have a commitable offer from us. that could have changed lately. but we don’t have room for 3 DB’s with our other needs.

From what I understand he doesn't have a commitable offer at the moment. We'll take Mukuamu over him all day. If we miss on Mukuamu then we may go after Dean.

Tindall put a article out saying he’s about to commit. Does that bode well for us? Has he taken all of his visits? If he hasn’t, I’d think it’s to us. Right or wrong?

Of course. Most of the class is set, it makes sense to make sure back up plans are in place in case we miss on some guys we expect to land. That's what good staffs do.
