Default Place Kickers

I've been reading about Brandon Chiazza and Patrick Nations. No offense to Parker White by any means, but (IMO) we need a better kicker. I'm sure some of you agree?

Our field goal percentage in 2017 makes your argument objectively true.

At the very least Parker White himself must become a better kicker.

I trust that Parker White and the coaches would admit as much.

Chiazza seems like he really wants to be here. Nations seems like he's waiting for a "better school" to woo him before he settles for us.

After Parker White started the season 1-7 kicking he went the rest of the season kicking 72%. For context that would be equal to or better than 2 of Elliott Fry's seasons here. Kicker isn't an issue.

Parker White is only a freshman. He has huge upside. He'll get better.

He has gotten better. As I said in another thread, I like to see competitiveness among players. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if Parker pushed himself to beat out good prospective recruits.

I'm saying that you're letting the start to the season impact your view way too much. 72% is a solid number for a kicker and after the start of the year once he got his feet under him that's what he went. He did that as a true freshman. We're in good shape at K for a while.

Hahaha, upside.. he's a kicker. Yea, he kicks it a long way. He can't make anything outside of 40. Bring in someone better rather than try to "develop" a kicker.

If he improves his accuracy, he could be deadly fromm 55 yards in. He's got the leg for 60 yarders, already. I expect him to get some training in the off-season. I'm pulling for him 100 percent.

We do but my money is on White. Highest percentage year he's had kicking is 68%, like I said earlier White drastically improved and I think he'll beat him out.

Ezzzzackly! A rough start (more mental than anything IMHO), then Elliot Fry level...

Parker has the leg we need.

How about if we just stop having to try 47 yd. field goal attempts? Then White would be an outstanding kicker.

Parker has the leg we need.
If we remember about Fry, when he first came here, he was pretty dang accurate but had no distance. Too lazy to look it up, but I doubt he had many if any 47yders in his TrFr season either.

If Parker can work on his t'wards, I think he's gonna end up being a good one for us. His KOs are already proving to be very valuable.

Edit: I tried a little bit to find some info on Fry's Fr kicking. It was hard to find a good breakdown. The best I was able to find in limited searching was that his season long his Fr year was 45yds.
