Why on earth is someone not only recording a college football game but also paying someone to commentate on it?

Are there that many mormons missing their days at BYU that they have to broadcast their games?

Holy FARK, that was a tenth of a second away from being a fumble recovery.   He almost caught that on the way down to the foot.

Someone is going to be running laps for a missed assignment.

I'm guessing you can't read AND you have bad eyesight?

I was watching the game live and was like "WTF" Looked like there were a few missed assignments on the left side.

yeah, the long snapper literally went running down the field immediately after snapping the ball, same goes for a guy on the left who had his eyes turned away from the line the entire time to block a guy who wasn't even rushing... leaving 2 guys to block 4 rushers

I wonder if that guy's abs hurt today.

That was pretty awesome.

inclemency - I was going to say I hope that player (Senn) has ROCK hard abs to take a point-blank punt like that.  Then he grabbed the ball and ran.  WOOF!
Oh, yeah - WHAT blocking on the left side there?  Looked like they ALL did a "look-out" block and headed downfield.  Senn was LITERALLY untouched.

A half a step faster and we would still be waiting for his testicles to reappear from his chest.

Damn, that was a hell of a blocked punt and return. You would be hard pressed to time that any better.

Can someone explain the punt formations in college?  I don't know how else to explain it, but I watch an NFL game and the punt formation looks different than the college game.  And I realize that there are many, many more CFB games on a weekend than NFL games, which leads to more chances of blocked kicks on the whole.  However, and this is for special teams play in general, in CFB it's just so...bad.

To me the "best" blocked punt would involve fighting off a block and laying out just to barely get your hand(s) on the ball.  This was more like the best missed special teams blocking assignment we'll see all season.  Not to take anything off of the dude's great timing and stainless steel gut, but if you don't get blocked at the line, it's really just a footrace to the punter.

Different game.  In the College game there is emphasis on the punt block instead of the punt return.  A lot of that has to do with the talent being stretched out you may have a couple all american backers that can blow through a line and thus have a greater success rate on punt blocks.   So the kicking team brings more guys into the blocking usually setting up 2 "layers"

In the NFL you're not getting through the line unless they aren't paying attention (see the Niners-Seahawks) so emphasis is on the punt return and thus the kicking team needs to concentrate on pressuring the returner and controlling the lanes.  So less blockers and more gunners.

Just more talent in the NFL so every guy playing the line is good and you aren't slipping through that wall for a block, small success rate = concentrate on blocking for your return guy and hope he can get some good yards.

Make any sense?

the best part is the punter turning around to chase like he's gonna do something about it

Yes.  Catching a ball being kicked hurts like hell.

/sadist coach made us wide receivers do that to "toughen up"
//1-8 record shows how well that worked
