Are ours that mediocre? Or have we really just seen the best in the country the last 5 weeks?

Braden Mann aTM #1 53.6 Avg
Tyler Bass GaSo. #14 47.0 Avg
Sterling H. Syr #20 46.0 Avg
Pressley H. GT #28 44.9 Avg


So, yes. We have faced teams with the best punters in the nation


And for reference:

Need to figure out average hang time. The Cuse kid put it into the stratosphere.

Was ridiculous.

I bet cuse gets a couple more muffed punt turnovers this year.

Wasn't there, but it seemed like high 5s instead of high 4s.***

I know. Every time an opponent's punter steps on the field I'm expecting a new ACC record punt.

It's just an opportunity for our offense to gain more yards before scoring.

It seems to have been that way the last 5 years

The punting game doesn’t work very well for us. I think we’ve returned 2 punts for a TD since the Spiller/Ford era. Humphries vs Louisville 2014 and Mcloud vs ncst 2017. I cant recall but a few bad “shanked” type punts vs us. It seems someone every week for the past 5 years always asks this same type question and I don’t have an answer. Just a curse I guess. Or maybe we don’t put much emphasis into it in practice/recruiting.

Bradley Pinion was a heck of a punter and NFL draft pick

Other than that a weakness over last decade.

Would you rather have a punter with a 50 yard average or XT, Ross and Higgins just to name a few??

2022 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg flag link


I suppose I'd like both.***

Why is it "or"? Is there some rule that says we can't recruit a punter if we have 5-star guys committed elsewhere?

Seems like there is no pressure on the punter. They surely kick better when under no stress to get the ball off.

flag link

Exactly right. No pressure.

We drop back to set up a return, but usually fair catch because the punter is back there all alone booming it. Need pressure.

LOL you read my mind

I swear it seems that for a decade at least, we have run into punters who can flip the field with 55+ yarders at critical times. Seems like at least once a game a kid unleashes a moonshot down inside the 10 right at the time we are about to put the pedal down on someone. You could throw in the 50 yard FGs we have against us too for good measure. If we had another Hatcher like punter and Gardocki like kicker we would be so loaded it would be stupid.

I don’t know why Clemson doesn’t try to rush the punter either.
