RE: Tyson Summers
Don't we get Henderson for another year? He's like having an extra tackle on the field.

Yes Tristain should be back next year. Both he and Kennard will be Seniors and Steve a Redshirt Sophmore.

RE: Tyson Summers
Forgot about him. The two tight end set will work. But odds are the new HC will run the spread and can Owens. Don't really care what happens as long as we win.

RE: Tyson Summers
I am probably as interested as anyone as to what side of the ball Steve will be on next year....But unless they sign some TE that is where I expect to see him... But you never know what a new coach might want to do.

Steve seems to have great hands for a TE. He will do well on either side though!

Actually, we were pretty bad on special teams when he was here. Our kick coverage was pretty terrible and he made punters punt rugby style.

UABs net punt ranked between 10th-50th when he was spec teams coach. How is that bad again? How does rugby punting make it bad? That's like saying running the spread offense is bad. U make no sense

Touche on the punting, I just don't like it. See if you can find kick coverage stats, cuz I can't find nothing on that. I just recall it being terrible.

The best thing about the punt team was the shield.

RE: Tyson Summers
The kick coverage stats were not great but it helps when you have a kicker that can put it through the back of the end zone like Ty can. Those stats are screwed to because we pooch kicked a lot

No one loved the rugby punting, but that was what Trey was best at. Summers made the game plan out of what we were given, and was very successful. Kick cover sucked, but we didn't have kicker that could get the ball past the 5 consistently with Zahn or with Ty his first year. The rule change, moving the ball up 5 yards, is what made the real difference there. Summers was also a heck of LBs coach. I think you can give him credit for helping develop Burdette, D White, P Bastien, G Irvin, L Ware, and Darrion Wilson. All of which turned out to be solid blazers.

RE: Tyson Summers
Yeah I think his better attribute was coaching the LBs not ST. Trey did well but kick coverage sucked on punts and KOs. From what I heard, he over worked Ty and that's a big part of why his touch backs weren't more the first year. I don't blame him for Zahn but that kid never put it in the endzone. I thought those last few years of special teams with him were bad.
