What is that?
A player who blocks punts. Kid was an animal. He probably had more in a season than we as a team have had since urban left.
Sammy McCorkle Bio
"McCorkle graduated with Florida's single-season and career records for blocked punts. He was named twice as Florida's special teams player-of-the-year."
Remember him very well. I was trying to be funny, playing off the fact that we've blocked about one punt in the last decade around here.
Gotcha. Drives me nuts we do not create special teams turnovers anymore.
We had either a chance at blocking a kick OR a return for 6?
Special Teams were SPECIAL?
They weren't coached by N-O-R-D?
Very happy for Jake. Along with a great education and platinum plated diploma, he gets to go to school in one of the prettiest and funkiest little college towns in the country, and the oldest football conference. The most fun I've ever had at a football game that didn't include UF was watching Yale take on Princeton at home back in 2006. We could learn a lot about tailgating and especially about how to treat our visiting rivals. Dartmouth currently has some cred as a sports program with the ascendence of Cubs ace, Kyle Hendricks. FWIW, Kyle was about as highly regarded a college prospect as Jake was. Player with intangibles have great opportunities playing in the Ivy league.
With the risk of having the wrath of Gator Nation come down on me, isn't UF the "Elite School"?
By the end of his tenure the returners didn't even try to catch punts just let them go. It's an underrated part of Mac's failures that isn't discussed enough.
Jake helped UF get 5 star WR Grimes. Thanks Jake! Smart move. Dartmouth is a premier school.
Don’t forget Kadarius Toney can be QB #4 in a pinch (even tho he’s injury prone too)...
Jake will have a WR corps coached by Dave Shula to throw to.
The Dartmouth Big Green has tradition. 18 Ivy League conference titles (tied with Penn for the record), most recently in 2015. And won a national championship in 1925.
That you Mac?
This is without an athletic scholarship, which the Ivy League doesn't offer.
But that's no big deal, since the tuition at Dartmouth (as of 2015) is only $48, 120.
I bet you had a ball. There is absolutely nothing that compares to an Ivy game day rivalry. Tops among them is, "The Game" between Yale and Harvard. The tailgates are awesome. Grilled lambs on spits, full bars with white gloved attendants, and racoon skin coats not worn in irony. The older the group, the more old school (obviously) the traditions. The half times are just as memorable with the bands competing for creativity and lampooning each other.
I hope that Jake will be delighted with his decision and his future.
Nord told our returners that opposing team's kicking balls contained highly radioactive plutonium.
You think nord knows what radioactive plutonium is? He probably thinks it has something to do with falling asleep in public.
He read it off of a card handed to him.
Good Luck Jake.
