And yes I know it's pathetic that a Gator fan is touting his teams ability to kick off really good. 8 years of crappy offense does this to a man.
Evan also plays safety, and was in the two-deep at the position last year. Not usually a starter, though his stat sheet shows he started three games last season.

But where he really shines is kickoff return, yep.

With Pinero putting over half his kickoffs through the end zone, you're right, Evan's chances of impacting the game in a big way go down. Especially since you guys may only need to kick off to us one or two times all game (fingers crossed).

On top of which, it looks like we have other stars emerging at that role.

Still, we'd rather have Evan healthy and ready to go, obviously. He's electric.

With FL offense there will not be a lot of kickoffs...they have to score first.

Yep, Evan's backup at KR did okay last Saturday.

I think we'll be okay either way. If it helps Evan and our team for him to sit another week and heal, then that's what our coaches ought to decide.

Coach said "questionable" on Monday...reaffirmed "questionable" on Wednesday.

Could even be "questionable" at game time.

I think he travels. And dresses out. Just no idea whether he sees the field.

You pretty much got it right. If your kicker can get it out of the end zone, Berry is neutralized. If he can't, it completely changes the dynamic of what the kicking team will do. We've seen teams pretty much hand the ball to us at the 35 instead of risking kicking it to Berry. Or, you can ask Georgia about the importance of not getting a celebration penalty on the score preceding the kickoff. Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to work his way into a prominent role outside of special teams.

How will rain affect your kicker's distance?

Rain and wind conditions could have a major effect on kickoffs
