RE: Saturday's Scrimnage Notes

Agreed. Past few years scrub kicks get on my last nerve.

Reading article gave the impression this team is coming together. If accurate this is great news

just think about our opponents avg. starting position since Hrappman.....it's cost us games....

there is no excuse to not be able to kick it deep or out unless into a gale.....

Remember the game against TCWho in H'burg when they wuz ranked #7? (of course you do!03-lmfao) The Horny Frawgs scrubbed kicked to about the 30 yd line, our guy (a TE I believe) tried to catch the ball, they hit'em before the ball got there, and ref said "First Down TCWho!!!"

Bowah went berserk because the rule said "If the squib does not touch the ground, the receiver must be given a chance to catch the ball (if kicking team hits receiver before the football arrives, it is considered "interference"), NO FAIR CATCH IS REQUIRED!...However, If no one on receiving team touches it, or fumbles it, it IS a live ball".

Bad call and game shoulda never been close!04-cheers

hell, I remember the game where we kicked off in both halves due to some coin flip misunderstanding.....bet ya never see that one again.....

ST mistakes are sins that should NEVER happen (less'n one likes to toss a few back 03-wink )

....toss in the refs at times, and it really gets fonzies.....

it's a fun game, eh?

the first one is just around the corner now......

04-cheers

RE: Saturday's Scrimnage Notes
just to pile on with some psychobabble that pertains to special teams....

I didn't get to watch Ray play all the sports and positions he did during his yrs at USM.....being an avid soccer player as a tyke in StL, the beauty of watching him kick the coffin corner when at OAK was an unparalleled asset that only few understood (Madden did)...watching Ray was like watching Pele....both were pure poetry in motion....

when we moved here in '74, I was lucky enough to play many a round of golf with that Guy .....he was as much of an athlete on that field as he was a pure gentleman too...

when one has the assets AND pays attention to detail, one can sometimes accomplish the most regardless of how the trunk is packaged.....

it's easily my favorite lesson relative to humility absorbed from things as I've been lucky enough to witness during my 52 years on this globe.....

The way we defended kickoffs last year, I would second the motion that it is a much needed asset.

I distinctly remember this. We won the toss....

Our guy said "We'll kick". The Ref said "Are you sure??". "Yeah, we'll kick". He thought he was deferring.
