  • She thinks my hawgs are sexy

so many misses . A bunch of bigtime teams can't find a decent kicker . Arkansas included . It cost Tennessee the win and likely will South Carolina too. All across the nation it's been bad

Kentucky's kicker made everything.... I agree that's the exception this year though.

Freshman USC kicker McGrath hit a 31 yarder to tie the game and send into overtime and then hit 43 yarder to win the game...and this was after missing one earlier in the game!!

If Texas kicker could have kicked through the end zone on his last kick, Texas might well have won that game. Started at 35 instead of the 20.

  • Is there a problem here?

could it be that kicking an odd shaped ball through a pretty narrow target from 30, 40, 50 yards is pretty hard? Michigan's kicker made 5 fg's Sat, but I saw many misses from close and far distances as well.

The answer is to watch more football, because the nadir of college kicking, statistically, is about 5 years in the rear view mirror.

Right now, kickers are converting attempts at slightly above historic averages.      The other factor at play is the old squeaky wheel theory--  you notice the mistakes, not the makes, and form your perception of kicking around them,  rather than the successes.

  • Setting the edge since 1960

Regarding Tennessee, missing 47 and 51 yarders isn't something to gnash your teeth about (like, uh, missing 20 and 23 yarders.  cough cough)

Except it wasn't.   About a fourth of FBS college football teams have yet to miss a FG or extra point. More than half have missed one or fewer.

Well, heck.  You've ruined a perfectly good thread.  Thanks a lot.
