We need an Aussie Rugby player as punter.  And CBB needs to start using fake punts like Jeff Long uses smokescreens.

I like scoring touchdowns better than kicking field goals.

Except for the two drives against TCU, we've actually been able to find a way to get the ball in the end zone this year (even if it took about 52 plays once).

Would hate to be Limpert right now. He has to be praying that we don't get backed into a corner where we absolutely have to attempt a critical FG.

Wow, you don't have much respect for the guy. I bet he's praying he gets to attempt a critical game winning field goal against Alabama.

I'll bet you a dollar it means something on Saturday.

It may. Doesn’t make your statistics any less irrelevant up to today. The argumehtbthat us not making a field goal is the end of the world when we’ve only been in the position to even need to kick two of them is pretty laughable. That’s completely independent of what happens this weekend. Hell I actually saw somewhere that CBB said Hedlund was still the place kicker.

My intent was to recognize the pressure he must be under given recent events. Don't read a bash or lack of respect into that.

It's possible. After the TCU game he said we may just go for it on 4th down from now on.

I heard a sounbyte from the radio today where CBB essentially said he wanted the new kid to have another week.  Im guessing they didnt think he was quite ready last game.

Just a question because I've not heard it asked.  Has Bielema given up on FG's for the season?


Could be.  Maybe it's because coach BB doesn't like giving 2nd team players game experience.  Since Hedlund was #1 this year, we may have to wait till next year, to see who the FG kicker will be.

Iirc, early on Bret Arnold attributed some special teams woes to not having enough versatile FB/TE size players.

When you don't hire a special teams coach because you don't think its important part of the game you will never have a good special teams period.
