Peyton Todd Number One Punter in America
LINK /

For all those asking for him to take a walk on spot or pissed he brings down the 247 average, quit yer bitchin. Remember how big of a weapon Brad Wing was? We don't win the 2011, 9-6 game with out him. Times have changed but you get the point.

Who is bitching about giving him a scholarship? He’s most likely our starting punter from day 1 as a true freshman for the next 4 years (unless they let Avery Atkins punt his senior year) so yeah, I think he earned one.

Bama doesn’t give scholarships to kickers and punters. We see how well that has worked out.

re: Peyton Todd Number One Punter in America
When fans were bitching about Todd dropping 247 avg. my mind drifted back to Wing and how he won the game vs Alabama.
It made me wonder about the lack of value placed on punters.
If the Clemson punter hadn't kept us in a hole for most of the first quarter, that game would probably have been decided in the first quarter, but surely by the first half.
It could have been a rout.

Bull shite. They routinely bring in highly ranked kickers and punters on scholarship. Will Reichard, Cade Foster, Adam Griffith, and JK Scott were among the highest rated in their class but only JK Scott panned out and the jury is out on Reichard.

Can’t wait for this kid to punt for LSU. Will be a huge weapon. I just hope we don’t have to use him often!

There’s a thread below proposing he save a spot by walking on. Just funny that this comes out shortly thereafter.

Bama kicking has been shite for a long time.

It was definitely a talking point several years ago, whether more myth or folk tail than accurate information, that Saban didn’t give kickers scholarships.

Maybe it’s because of how often he uses non-scholarship kickers (?) or because walkons have made a higher percentage of their kicks than scholarship kickers, which brings attention to it...idk.
quote:

Alabama typically carries two kickers. Often, one is on scholarship and one is a walk-on. During the Saban era, 36% of field-goal attempts have been by kickers who weren’t on scholarship at the time. In fact, walk-ons have made a higher share of their field-goal attempts (76%) than players on scholarship have (69%). The national average during that time is just below 73%.

Bama sucks at kicking

But it has definitely been a known conversation in years past, however true it might not be.

His average pushing 50 yards!
His hang time up to almost 5 seconds (4.76)

Only 2 five star Punters exist in 2021 class and that’s Peyton and this Aussie punter.

Screw these star ratings, this kid is a 5-Star

Did it cost them a chance at the national championship last season?

Fantastic, does this mean he will get at least a 3 star on 247?

Same thing with long snappers. Can anyone remember the last time we had a botched punt due to the snap?

PK, Punters and LS are worth their weight in gold if they are great.
