    I've thought the same thing.
    I don't care if the best punter is a QB, or a big burly Linebacker.
    I just want someone/anyone who can kick 40 yards.
    Maybe someone like Lia could add an additional threat.
    Will he pass, or will he kick??
    Has anyone seen Tua, or Lia kick?

    Wouldn't want to see Tua back there. Can't think of a team that wouldn't mind taking a roughing the kicker penalty for the chance to knock Tua out of the game.

    I agree TideMan, it seems a lot of teams in the SEC have one of those Australian punters whose kick travels fairly low but does funny things when it hits the ground. Maybe it's time for CNS to find one of them. G'day mate.

    I remember when straight ahead place kicking started to go out of fashion and Coach Bryant saying on his weekly show, “We’re going to get us one of those sidewinder kickers.”

    I haven't heard of Jack Martin....I guess because he's a walk on coach puts the scholly players ahead of him or its a waste of a scholarship? Our punting is bad, I guess if it continues Martin will get his shot.

    Bernier would be a more consistent chose.
    DeLong has to get out of his own head...if he can he would be fine.
    Reichard I hope doesn't punt again unless its an absolute necessity.

    Has a team ever had a “Lefty” at both quarterback and punter?

    Let's get the guy from USA to transfer. He hit several over 50 had one for 64 and averaged 45yds last night in 8 punts. Kids got a leg.

If we fail and they score, we have saved some time for our offense to score...barring injury (ugh) we can outscore anyone in CFB.
    Most coaches don't want to take a chance that Tua will miss a pass or run...
