Ryan Ault is on the roster and he is really good at the extra points.

I don't care who's kicking, they just need to be consistent.

If you can make it from 50+, that's even better.

Google Tennessee Florida 2012 box score. It shows Brodus as 2 of 3 extra points, and Palardy and Darr for a total of 7 punts, no place kicks.

He helped Palardy too. When Dools put him back in after the benching, Palardy was somewhat better.
So he is our Rudy ?

I could've swore palardy has killed momentum with something like that at least once or twice last year and recalled florida being one.....but I guess when he consistently botches kicks it's easy to lump them all together.....either way I think if brodus can zone out and forget about the crowd he will be better than palardy...with that said if palardy would get his crap together he could be pretty good too

I like the flight of Brodus' ball better than Palardy's. Palardy comes over the top a little , resulting in a low trajectory and a pull hook. Brodus doesn't seem to a real strong leg, but he did okay, except for that extra point. He probably doesn't have a lot of confidence, and it seems to me that the missed extra point was the result of trying to steer the ball, instead of freewheeling like you would a longer kick. I think that he made a little easy punch and pushed it, if my memory is correct.

I think that Palardy probably needs some adjustment to his technique, and Brodus needs enough reps to have success, and lose his tentativeness.

Well said.....brodus can make 40 yards...48+ yds might be a little dicey

Hopefully Butch lets a former Vols like Wilhoit etc (not Lincoln) work with the kickers - unlike idiot Dooley brushing off former Vols help

Someone else may know the rules, but I don't think that you can bring in extra coaches. I would think that if the kickers need help, and nobody on the staff can provide it, that the kicker might have to pay for private tutoring.
