The field goal was huge and we needed it.
The blocked field goal was enough to get someone fired.
Does our special teams coach understand how to prepare and coach the team how to play to PREVENT a block.
If we have that happen again this year, he should be replaced.
I love the kickoffs sent to or beyond the endzone, though honestly on two or three kicks I never saw where the ball went. I don’t know if it was that far out of the end zone or just me.
Limiting kickoff return chances for the other team is definitely a big advantage. Certainly a lot better than the kickoffs that often dropped at about the 20 yard line in years past before we had much of anyone near it.
Getting punts blocked routinely is simply unacceptable. It can’t be allowed to continue.
Agree with all of your points.
The depth on this years team will make the hogs a better 4 th quarter team.
The linebacker play today was solid even with the loss of Morgan early and the loss of Pool late in the game.
It’s real simple, the buck stops with the coach. If he can’t get the right players in the right place to do the right thing then either find a player that does the job or pack your bags and CSP can find a replacement. Like Coach Pittman said, “we have to be one on those teams that isn’t having punts blocked.” Any CEO knows he will ultimately be held responsible for failure. Sh!t and heads roll down hill.
Not blaming so much as calling a spade a spade. The ultimate decider will be CSP, but I bet if we have another punt blocked we will have a change at coaching in sPecial TEAMS. It wouldn’t get shrugged off at Alabama. Coach Pittman threw down the gauntlet during his presser.
