Default Kicker

With this being so close to the start of the season. What's your take on us not having a legitimate kicker?

I am confident that the offense will be able to move the ball better than that.

I'm going to be a bit pissed off if our kicking game hasn't improved. There's no excuse for our FG unit to suck that bad. The Outback Bowl was embarrassing. We wouldn't have needed that final drive to win if our damn kicking game was just decent.

I know one thing, Max Huggins and Elliott Fry haven't stormed like we thought they would.

What is worse is that our two scholarship guys (Fish, St. Germain) can't beat these walkons (hell, Fish is a scholarship holder right now).

Hopefully we won't need our FG unit to do more than FGs, but having a solid kicker could be the difference between a 10-2 season and a 12-0 season..ask Alabama.

We don't even need a great kicker...just someone who can kick solid from 40 yards out.

That's pretty much what walk on tryouts are - which have already happened. I say don't worry about it. The kink will work themselves out. Some of you (if not all of us) are going to worry about our kickers until they hit that first field goal of the season.

Fish is no longer on scholarship. He's paying in his own way this year. He'll probably end up being the holder this year.

As far as kicker/long snapper, interviewd Coach Robinson after practice today and he comments both spots are "Wide Open"

I dont get how these kids could kick in high school. But when they come up to this level they cant seem to put it between the uprights. Do they change their steps or something? Different form...what is it?

They can use a kicking block in HS. Makes it 10 times easier to kick in HS.

Landon Ard and Nick St. Germain both have said they didn't use a block their Junior or Senior seasons of high school because they wanted to kick in college (to prove they could). They both did use them a few times on really long field goals in important game situations though but I mean the majority of the time they didn't use one.

I don't know what's the deal with our kickers. They seem to come here perfectly capable then become head cases when called on. We were so spoiled with Lanning and Succop.
