    Most decent athletes can punt, committing money at this level is silly.

    A bit of an overstatement buck. Does seem that Andy desperate for a punter, any punter.

    Something strange Rich. I just saw an article showing Clowes signing to go to Army. Am I missing something?

    Article noted he was “going to” Army. He wasn’t signing a NLI. Probably ,if anything, a likely letter like yhe Ivies use.

    A good punter can be a heck of a defensive weapon. We have seen that over the last several years. Someone who has good hang time and skilled at “directional” punting is important–more so than distance.

    Teams punt way too much, going on 4th down makes way more sense but too many old school coaches that coach on gut rather than statistical analysis. Andy isn’t terribly bright.

    buck,
    Information is so easy to look up.
    In 2015, Lehigh punted the ball 29 times, only 10 times in the 6 Patriot League games. Andy elected to go for it on 4th down 33 times. They were successful less than half the time (42.42%)

    Then my apologies to Andy, he’s smarter than I suggested. Hoping he doesn’t go back on this strategy because it’s the way to win.

    Looks like we’ve got 2 incoming punters. Probably a good things; injury insurance at P and PK.

    OK what happened to the kid from TX and why do Texans say they are coming here and then don’t :-)

    Let’s not forget Ed Mish can both kick and punt.

    Personally I’m rooting for not needing a punter all season next year but it’s nice to have one in case we do :-)

    As far as I know Hennming committed and Clowes was offered. Doubt Andy bringing in 2.
