Notes:

Was an all-state punter as a Wisconsin prep, and also played linebacker and tight end. Punted in all 13 games in 2008, booting 66 punts for an average of 41.8 yards with a long of 64 and 19 punts inside the 20-yard line. Totaled 49-42.0-L61-17 in ’09 and 38-42.7-L76-14 in ’10. Booted 46-42.2-L74-19 during his fourth and final season as the Badgers punter in '11.

Positives:

Good leg strength and hang time. Has a feel for directional and pooch punting. Four-year starter. Experience kicking in cold, wind and rain. Held for place kicks.

Negatives:

Inconsistent get-off quickness. At times, hurries himself and boots some duds. Punts die in windy conditions. Average athlete — not fleet of foot on fakes.

Summary:

Experienced, smart, right-footed punter who takes pride in his craft. Will have to improve delivery quickness to have a shot.

    • I'm somewhat concerned over Cam's shoulder - but the LB group really has me worried. Luke's concussion really has me freaked out still... and I pray that TD's ACL continues to be strong.
    • The best part about trying to discuss racism or privelege with people is how when you mention these terms they immediately go to "I've worked for everything I ever had, nothing was ever handed to me", demonstrating that they don't understand what privelege is and how it's not an accusation. And instead of listening to what you say, they're in defensive mode and spend the entire argument denying that they are racist, dominate the conversation, and don't learn anything, and you never even accused them of being a racist to begin with. It's exhausting.
    • The KB hate is ridiculous. Blaming him for hogging targets that should have gone to Ginn? First of all, Ginn had more receptions and yards in 2016 than 2015. Sure he went down in TDs, but I'd expect KB to always have more TDs. Second, how do people forget that in his first game back from ACL that he was our best offensive weapon against the vaunted Denver D? We scored 20 (should have been 23) points against Denver with KB and 10 in the SB without and our offense was actually -5 based on turnovers.

      It gets tiring to see the revisionist history trying to blame KB for our offensive drop because he was a target hog.

      I'll throw out that if KB played in the SB we would have won. In 3 games against Denver Cotchery and Ginn had 7 receptions for 96 yards and caused an INT/muffed a huge pass before the step sack for a TD, regardless of replay officials. In 1 game against Denver KB had 6 receptions for 91 yards and a TD.
