Default Walkon Cimaglia

Another walk-on punter.
http://southcarolina.247sports.com/A...-game-28865570

Coach Robinson and Dan Orner seem pretty high on him.
It is sad our average punt last year was 37.8 yards (bad when 126 punters in FBS football averaged 40 or higher)...Hull ranked 163 overall.

The only thing that doesn't have me jumping is Cimaglia averaged just 37.6.
Granted he has had a while to get stronger, but I'm not jumping up and down saying our punt woes are fixed. Just looking at the numbers, Cimaglia is just a clone of Tyler Hull.

But who knows, a year of growth, with hopefully better coaching (he is a raw punter) could add another 3 yards to his average, it would put him in the top 110.

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoot.../NCAAF/PUNTAVG

Just for reference, Michigan's Kenneth Allen booted a 51 yarder for his lone punt. The best punter with a high amount of reps was Idaho's Austin Rehkow, with an average of 47.8.

Really wish we would go the LSU route and bring in an Aussie punter. Get a kid that grew up playing Aussie rules football that can kick and then go down and lay a hit too.

And honestly, what killed Tyler last year was consistency...he booted a 55-yarder once, but he also shanked too many. He also put 10 of 46 attempts inside the 20 (22 percent)

Yep, we had a good one with Ryan. Sometimes I almost think Spurrier would rather have a shaky punter just to give him the incentive to go for it on 4th down.

HOpefully, Robinson strikes gold again like he did with Fry.

There really should be a cut-off for figuring the average to delineate between when you are kicking for distance and when you are trying to pin them back. Counting everything in the overall average doesn't give the best representation.

IMO , Hull drops the ball too far instead of kicking the ball at a higher point .. You almost have to kick the ball straight out of your hand to reduce error , eliminate shanks and increase consistency , also much more control of hangtime ... 9th grade stuff

Was it Komorak or something like that? I could be wrong about this, but I seem to remember him leaving the program after the season last year.
