Who is going to coach the kickers? Is there any track record of any coach that can possibly get us at least back to zero missed extra points with the players we currently have?
As far as coaching kickers, and helping them with technique, the only one qualified to coach a kicker has to have been a kicker himself. I doubt if they have a former kicker on staff. Can you imagine someone who has never hit a golf ball trying to help a college level golfer with his swing?

I wish the Colquitt and Reviez families would start a Kicking Academy in Knoxville for future kickers/punters. Start training them early and send them on to UT.

How the heck do you break a leg kicking a football? Especially when all you do is kick footballs.

Also, there was info yesterday about Aaron Medley from Lewisburg/Marshall Co., a Jr. this year, who is the top-rated kicker in the country.

Not sure how it happened, but if someone was trying to block it and hit his leg it could easily happen.

I swear we have more kicker injuries happen than I thought could be conceived or imagined... does any other team suffer through the same crap that we must endure from our kickers? Thankfully, CBJ has promised to make special teams a weapon this year. Enter James Wilhoit

I would think that plant leg would be better than kicking leg if one of em had to be injured. Easier to keep working on strength in kicking leg, seems to me.

Having a reliable kicker would be such a huge thing. A school as traditionally good as Tennessee shouldn't have any problems with recruiting a good kicker once every four years. Need to get it together!

They just put Brodus on scholarship so they can get a good feel for just who will be doing what come the fall. My bet’s on Palardy ending up the punter and Bullock ending up the kicker. We’ll see what happens after the spring.

Unfortunately, the last one was Greg, who chose to go to Clemson:

(Updated) P Greg Colquitt Decides on Clemson - Greg Colquitt Recruiting Update - TigerNet

Not sure if there are any more in the future and if so, how far off that is...but I do miss that family being in orange.
