    Banished to the bench in his junior year. Replaced by a true Frosh that had a redshirt burned.

    His senior year is shot and Townsend's frosh year in the process.

    That's a net loss in roster management....

    How is his Sr year shot? If Kyle wins the job back in the off season Townsend gets his redshirt back roster management it fine. It is up to Kyle

    This, the change was unnecessary. How do we know about the competition in practice I thought they were closed.

    so you think Kyle was just doing fine in games? It is ok to drop punts and punt poorly in games? When the staff feels they have a good punter on the bench.

    Muschamp is a bad, bad coach. All together now; "Muschamp is a bad, bad coach; and may also be a mean man."

    That's what comes out of every damn thread on this site.

    NIU coach asked at halftime if he was going to talk to his kicker at halftime said no, he's a kicker he will figure it out. They are a different breed. Caleb has had his problems this year with the Fins.

    We are getting to the point of benching players who preform poorly. Need to take a break?

    If you do not see how the QB play is unrelated and completely separate from the punting situation, I don't think this discussion is worth continuing, so yes I will gladly "take a break".

    My point is why the philosophy change? Sticking with a guy who is struggling at QB ( who was not an All American last year and had a capable back up, contrary to the opinion of some) and not let your All American kicker "kick his way out of" a slump that frankly wasn't costing us much?

    Serious question are you new to the game of football? You play who you think your best option is.

    Jeff wasnt really seriously struggling and not many people believed in his back up. As we see now Jeff was the best option when healthy. When you change the QB you change the whole way the team thinks and has to play. TM doesnt have the arm of Jeff. TM was not making the right pre snap reads so we had to start calling them from the sidelines


    How long should they have waited to put Kyle on the bench when the back up was punting well in practice?

    Lets not forget they changed a safety after two games. How long should Maye have stayed on the field?

    No I am not new to the game of football. Played all the way through high school. Been watching as long as I can remember. We disagree on the difference between JD and TM as well as the punter situation. If you are developing the QBs the back up QB should be developed to run the existing offense.

    One very consistent fact is your condescension AZ

    Punting is all about Consistency! All about handling pressure with 10 men coming @ you and you getting the job done without a hitch. Being a gamer when the lights come on, that's what makes a great punter. Most guys in a Div.1 program have a great leg. Proud Papa! Tell Kyle to work hard! And he will get his job back! I'm pulling for him.

    Tyler can certainly run the same offense but not as well as Jeff arm talent and otherwise. But when should Jeff have been bench and how long would you have let Kyle continue to play like he was?

    You have two punters.

    One punter has punted better in games than the other one. Which punter do you play? I mean, this is a fairly simple thing to understand here.

    I find it disingenuous that many of the same people that are blaming Muschamp for benching Kyle are the same ones that claim Muschamp doesn't play the best players.
