    People will laugh, but punters are probably the underrated impact players on the field. This is a great pickup.

    Unless the rule has changed, five in the backfield is illegal formation.

    I thought you just had to have six on the line of scrimmage. I used to know that. But, I stand corrected. Thank you. So, put four RBs in a row in the backfield, then. Same gameplan.

    Because it’s an illegal formation. You must have 7 on the line of scrimmage.

    EDIT: Shoot @phatGator beat me to it.

    I remember that and loved the quote, but Spurrier used to make sure he always had a good punter.

    Too bad we punted less than any other team in the SEC except A&M (UF 43, A&M 42)
    You should do a little research before you post something you think is funny.

    Guys like this are the real student athletes.

    It does make me wonder whether that will get turned on its head too. Will the model be the 5 stars get more NIL to cover/pay tuition and save the scholarships for kids that don’t get much NIL.

    Why punt when your 4th down conversion is so good.

    Coaches throw whatever resources they have at 5 stars to land them. Why would a 5* pay out of pocket for his tuition and meals when every other school offers it for free?

    What will likely happen is that the 2* kids and specialists are offered NIL money to cover tuition. Unfortunate, but a reality.

    Yeah....think you will see wealthy schools bringing in several guys as PWO that get enough NIL to make the offer as good as going to a smaller school on scholarship.
