I only see improvement as a possibility after last year. I would be happy with
an average kicking game. Last year was hard to watch.
The kicking game hasn't been a strength since Matt Payne was in Provo. He
consistently performed well in the kicking game, and DESTROYED any returner that
got past the first line.
Based on what I saw last season and how Bronco has said he would handle 4th down
situations this year... liability.
Based on what I saw at Saturdays scrimmage, I would say the kicking game will be
much better than last year. I still wouldn't consider it a strength in
relation to other positions this yr, but I don't think it will be a
liability like last year either. So to answer Harmon's question...neither a
strength or a liability, how's that for a solid answer? Lol
From what I've both learned and seen of the BYU offense this year, the
kicking game won't be much of a factor either way. The offense will score
more touchdowns than there will be fieldgoal attempts. People currently sitting
on the sidelines regarding just how good this team is are going to be very
surprised. And very pleasantly surprised if they are BYU fans.And
regarding those that aren't BYU fans... well, it's going to be a very
sad year for people such as Chris B, AZUTE1, and Naval Vet.
bronco will don his O-S-T jersey and do the kicking himself.They
whine when we post and they call us out when we don't. lol.
I truly hope the kicking game is better this year. There is no excuse for a top
50 team in Division 1 to not have an adequate kicker.
Too bad about Sorensen. I saw YouTube videos of this guy KILLING 50+ yd field
goals as a junior in high school. And he did it regularly! If I
remember right, didn't he set the Utah high school state record with a
field goal of over 60 yards?!I thought he was absolutely destined
for a very, very long career in the NFL.And then, he got injured.
Twice. Who in the heck falls off a unicycle? And then falls off a front porch?
I know weird things happen to all of us and there's no way he WANTED to
get injured. I just feel bad for him for what had to be an enormously college
and pro career ahead of him.Best of luck, Justin Sorensen. I hope
you still accomplish all your dreams.GO COUGARS!
