HOG KICKERS
« on: November 24, 2012, 12:22:53 am »

 What the heck is up with kickers at Arkansas? Tejada and Hocker both started out as money kickers and both end up losing the job? Lets hope that, whoever the new coach is,he brings someone in that is more effective with kickers.

Some days are just like that with kickers. It does get frustrating.

The best explanation I've heard ist that success breeds success, and failure breeds failure.  Everyones performance has been affected this year, cept for Hamiltons.

JLS said he was thinking last game he would change kickers. Why didn't he do that last game? Isn't he the coach? Had he made the change last week they might have won the game on a field goal. What a joke for a coach he is and was and will always be. He is worse than Lame Kiffin.

The same coach that puts in a brand new deep snapper to go up against Bama.

Hocker is within a few points of being the all-time scoring leader in Arkansas history.

He pulled Hocker for a "poor" performance, but got to keep his job all year long.

It is difficult but I believe Steve Little, Steve Cox and Bruce Lahay performed all kicking duties.

Did anyone else notice our holder only lined up six yards  behind the ball on the first missed field goal?

hocker is a fine kicker, he just had a bad moment and it happens to kickers. he's one of the best.  the backup did great. breeding is also top notch.

tejada on the other hand was never a quality player, never even close to the hype and was less than impressive or dependable.

What happen to Hocker is the same thing that happened to the Razorback team all year. Lack of accountablity from the coaching staff! Our special team sucked all year long. We still did not find anybody to field a punt all year long.

You'll perhaps learn that you (coaches) do not hold kickers accountable.

hockers freshman season... i was as excited about him as anyone.  thought we had found a real stud.  not only did he have accuracy, but he had distance.  the kicks exploded off his foot.. perfect trajectory.. perfect draw.. blah blah. 

dont know what has happened, but something happened.  this year, hocker was not a good kicker.  in fact, after yesterday, i believe he is just barely over 50% for the year.

You're supposed to leave the kicker alone before and during the game. Jonelle was seen telling jokes to Hocker and yelling, "Smile,Smile"!

Coach Petrino or Saban would have told him "You make the kick or you get a front row seat from the sideline." He didn't all of a sudden become a bad kicker. He missed a 20 yard field goal against Auburn on Arkansas first drive of the game.

Hocker and Tejada were the two best high school kickers I had ever seen in person. Figured both to be NFL bound. Maybe Hocker still can.

For real? You really think so?  I very much doubt it.  The most they might say is "we need this one"  or something to that effect.  They would never put a price on it.  Never.

The same coach that puts in a brand new deep snapper to go up against Bama.

And Brandon Allen with 0:35 after Tyler threw 5 picks and down a gazillion points.

Could Allen punt for us next season? He did it in high school and it could really make 4th down interesting.
