Punting is one area that burned and hurt us a bunch last season. I can't believe TT is being so casual finding a competent punter. The two guys we currently have are only adequate at their best. This is a key component to having a quality team (having a reliable punter). This is looking like hoping for the best rather than addressing a real issue.

I dissappointed in Jeremy K. from PSU. I saw in action at Happy Valley (I am afterall, a Penn State guy!!!), but he has been well??????

i guess the way it worked out that was a big mistake by Ted cutting Jon Ryan.Yes Ryan would kick a 30 yard punt from our 10 and then hit one 60 yards when we were at Chi or Minn 45 yard line,but these last few punters are struggling.

Rick I'm a PSU guy too, and frankly I don't remember being wowed by Jeremy when he was here, which is why I was shocked when they picked him up! The nation's best punter that year was at Wisconsin, but the Pack tried him out and cut him.
