Kicking game

With the staff complete now and recruiting heating up I notice that there is no mention of a kicker and my assumption is because Palardy is a senior next year and CBJ doesn't want to tie up a scholly this year.

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?

George Bullock is supposed to be very good. He broke a leg in early practice last season and took a redshirt year. He should be ready but nobody knows what his leg strength is going to be yet as he recovers. Most suspect he will be fine.

Sometimes they, the kickers, kick further because the muscles and tendons heal better...but I'm not a doctor, but I have heard of it before.

I would guess the special teams coach would be the kickers coach. Just a wild guess.

I am sure CBJ forgot about the kicking game. He sure appreciates your reminder.

Does no one pay attention to other [recent] threads and current players (Bullock) anymore before starting yet another thread on this same topic? Smh.

What is this kicking game you speak of? Is this something new? I've forgotten what that is.

Not completely.

Changing to soccer style, per Rucker. TIFWIW...

Once the bone has completely healed it should have little or no impact on his leg strength. They have ways of maintaining strength without putting pressure on broken bones so I am sure he hasn't lost anything. Soccer players break legs all the time and are usually back in a few months depending on the severity. Does anyone know if it was one or both bones?

I believe it was the femur of his stance/plant leg.

You just can't carry 4 kickers on scholarship and they already have 3 in Palardy, Darr, and Bullock.

Far too many holes on this team to tie up another scholarship.

I would settle for James Wilhoit. That's the last competent kicker this program has had.

True. For a program that has a history of great kickers (both punters and PK), we sure have fallen on hard times.
