Picked a great team to play on to showcase his talents

Some on here were complaining about Dane’s punting last year. I thought he was fine. He’s obviously kicked it up a notch. Wow, he’s pretty great. Although I hate that I know he is, due to our offensive problems (pun intended).

He’s one of the main reasons we’re still in this game! Great performance so far.

To me he has just been an average punter, until this year. He has been pretty amazing this year.

I’m not sure I agree with you, as his stats are pretty consistent, with this year being a big jump, but stats are a fairly ridiculous way to evaluate a punter.

Not just in the game. He was doing some killer kicks practicing. 3 footers for Eagle type stuff.

I have nothing but an opinion here, but it seems like the coaches have let him use his talent this year. In other words, letting him kick the crap out of the ball, and not worrying about hang time. I am very uneducated here, but strictly from the viewer’s eye, it seems he is more in his element.

I don’t understand why more college teams don’t kick at the corners.

Dane will be drafted IMO.

Again, he was under Apple Boy the previous years.

He’s shown that he can execute several different kicks. He does a great job of limiting return opportunities and hitting his spots.

You will get punched in the face.

It’s an old running joke from about ten years ago

Nah. I definitely would not get punched in the face. I’ll stay on the outside of this inside joke tho.

Dane was our best offensive weapon early in the game.

Yeah nobody’s really getting punched

This was a real treat.
