    Not named Harden, Velez or Phillips? Just pure craziness we are 0 for 3 with kickers at a school like UF.

    The FSU kicker never misses.

    He's never missed an extra point and is very accurate from long distance.

    Perhaps the question should be, "can we get a kicking/punting coach to correct our kickers/punters next year?"

    They
    All of the place kickers that can not make a FG from more than 30 yards need to go. Then recruit one who can kick at least 40 yards. That crap today was bad. Our kicker could not reach the cross bar from

    If any of our fg kickers are on schollys they need to be pulled.

    According to Champ in one of his post-game interviews he says they are going to try and "fix" Hardin.

    Hardin should have been put on the shelf mid season. He wasn't ready. I have seen things like this before though, don't be shocked to see Hardin as one of the best in the SEC by the time he is done. I think special teams will sort itself out just fine.

    Kicker? What about a Punter, QB, LT, RT, WR, TE, DT, DE, LB, CB or safety?

    I too heard that comment and thought to my self... so, a struggling FG kicker that Muschamp recriuted, he'll stick with... but a returning Ray Guy Finalist, who he didn't recruit, gets banished to his dog house? Again, please don't get me wrong, JT had a nice day punting today... But it's hard to prove anything (to anyone) when you're not on the field.

    PP nothing WM does makes a lot of sense. It appears we are in for another disappointing year because JF doesn't want to admit he made a mistake. He is hoping somehow wm can figure it out. When WM gets fired JF needs to be fired as well.

    Not as nice as Auburn's kicker. Geeze did he pin Bama twice at their own 1 yard line. Christy was like that last year and I think that is missed more than his reduction in total avg.

    We don't need a kicker as much as we need to fire the boob who absolutely demolished our kickers' confidence this year, special teams coach Choate.

    Bart Edmonson was like that, wasn't ready in 92, ended up a great kicker on the 95 and 96 teams.

    Shame we don't have Judd Davis ready to step in like we did in 92.

    Really focused on the punters in pregame and as they warmed up before the second half. Kyle still has the bigger leg for sure, but he is really struggling with any consistency...at least in that limited amount of time. I would say 2 out of three were not hit well, at least by the standards we know he can produce.
    He'll get it back. Hopefully JT takes a RS next year and Kyle returns to form. But I think today the guy that should have been out there probably was (and I'm one that would have stuck with Kyle longer than the staff did).

    I will say this - and you probably won't like it - but punting was probably our sole bright spot today.
