Special Teams, Punting We have some the best most consistent punting in the nation, although that rugby style punt can get Sporty. Punt coverage was sketchy at times. We gave up more yards than I would have liked. The Williamses were studs last year. M Williams was almost always the first one down and A Williams was a punt blocking Ma-cheen. I expect that incoming freshmen Davis and/or Barnett will also add some pressure. Shipley did well as the returner but I expect to see a different face on returns. Maybe Hales or A Williams or, he is still here, DJ Monroe. Kick Offs We had awesome kickers, I wish we could have gotten more touchbacks, but that is asking alot. Again we gave up alot of yards in coverage at crucial moments. (Tech) But it improved at the end of the season. Same deal with the returners. FGs Again 2 great kickers. I think there was a low in kicking in the middle of the season but was overall consistent. I expect consistency this year. We could always use more blocks.
