I’m sorry, but the fact that we have a punter that is NOT ABLE to kick a spiral punt, is absolutely RIDICULOUS. And don’t give me this “But he’s is a rugby style punter” crap!
Every rugby style punter I’ve seen, still has the ability to punt conventionally with a step forward spiral, for maximum height and distance, when the team is pinned deep in it’s own territory.
I’m sick of seeing our punter kick low end over end kicks with no hang time for no more than 40 yards when we are back near our own end zone. CAN NO ONE TEACH HIM HOW TO KICK A SPIRAL? He is a freaking division one punter!
I know everyone loves the funny Australian punter, but I’m sorry, he is a liability in the punting game and the fact that neither Herman nor Applewhite made it a priority for him to learn how to kick a spiral, is unbelievable.
I’ll take the field changing BOMBS Richie Leone used to kick over this nonsense, any day!
