Is Spiers favored to win the starting punt

job again this year? If so, has he improved since last season? I don’t expect us to have to punt much but flipping the field position would help us, especially come playoff time.

I think all 3 punters have had good days and bad days - or you might say inconsistent. Dabo said last week that all three would play which I interpret to mean they will all get in the game and see which one does the best and most consistent in a live game setting. The only problem that is there might not be a lot of punting prior to playing TA&M.

I think you can also interpret that as meaning none

If I saw Spiers do another of those weak rugby punts I would bench him forever.

His rugby style punts have actually worked better than some of his others

His normal punts. I’ll take a 40 yarder all day long. Better than the normal 30 yarders

From what I read he is ahead of the other two and has improved in that he is more consistent than last year.


Don't need a punter this year...

Will Spiers has not been, up at least to this point, a game changing punter. Seems like a fine young man but if he has any strong competition he may find himself, at the very least, sharing duties with another.

Spiers can punt. We have seen him do it. He had a brilliant punt (compared to last season) in the spring game. Consistency, as referenced in a few posts, is the issue. I have a feeling he will be more consistent as the starter this season.

Spiers just needs consistency. His 1st punt in the title game went 51 yards. Also, I'm no expert but I don't believe he decides on his own to rugby punt it. I'm thinking the coaches have a bit of a say in it.


I was surprised his first punt in the title game

Hopefully he can do better this year

You are likely correct . The coach (or coaches) make the call on the rugby kick . It is really pretty effective because it is rarely returned .
Once it hits the ground it can roll a long way .

The coaches have decided not to punt this year! They will

just go for it every time on fourth down, figuring we will make first down about 85% of the time!!
