Groody an expensive mistake?

Groody an expensive mistake?

Great win yesterday.

One question I have is about the punting game. Why did we make this kid Groody our first scholarship kicker/punter if this walk-on Keegan Peterson kid is so damn good?

I know it's early in the season, but I wonder if Howard is kicking himself (pardon the pun) for giving Groody so much $$.

Groody had one punt for 40 yeards...what did Keegan average? ;)

37.4, but he punted five times. I'd hardly say one punt is a good sample size, but then, Peterson did have one of 63 that bumped his average up.

I just hope Groody doesn't spend three years stuck behind a walk-on on the depth chart….just seems like a huge waste of money.

Watching the 2 punters warm up, it was pretty clear that Groody has the stronger leg. I wonder what the reason for Keegan getting more punts than him. Is he slow getting the punt off? Keegan had one of his blocked. Still it was just one game. I'd be suprised if Groody isn't the primary punter at the end of the year.

i agree…i watched him four different days in practice…he has a great leg…

unfortunately, he also has great NERVES…….

give him a little time…

we have a very diverse kicking team, that is for sure!

if we use use two punters, and two kickers in each game - wow!

All I know is his name is Ryan Paros, he's our kickoff specialist and he's a sophomore out of Marathon High School in the Keys. All-state in high school, apparently.

Good to know we have a decent backup for Leroy, even if he isn't on the online roster!

Oh, and his girlfriend isn't particularly ugly, either ;)
