I dont care who kicks the ball. As long as we have someone who can make a field goal so we dont have to go for it on 4th and long anymore. Unless the wind is blowing, then we dont kick and let Navy beat us....again.

If I remember correctly, when Forbath (UCLA) and Burkhart (ND) were touring the country at kicking camps there was another young man who was consistently in the top 3 with those other 2. That young man just so happened to accept a soccer scholarship to a little private school in South Bend. His name was somewhat foreign and the first and last name were almost identical to each other.

Why in the world we don't go after a PROVEN Div II or Div III kicker, is beyond me.

It's SO EASY, and there are over 1000 of these schools to choose from!

Although special teams are important (especially the kicker), I believe that establishing the run (which ND has been TRADITIONALLY known for), NEEDS to be first & foremost "established" before we can count on 45 + yd. field gaols! Sustainning blocks for the run & pass blocking must "IMPROVE!" this season to make it a winning one... Once the basics occur the IRISH can throw the long ball with much more success than last year's bismal Embarassment! GO IRISH!!!

Lujack, you are refering to Tamba Samba from Indy's Ben Davis High, plays F on ND soccer team. Yes an excellent FG, KO, and punter, but Ryan Burkhart was just as good if not better in most of the competitions. http://www.prokicker.com/rankings/highschool/78?year=2005

Maybe if Clark doesn't let one of his guys go, Charlie could go ask Randy Waldrum. Brittany Bock could do it. I imagine she could do at least as well as 6/13.

take away the 3 kicker scholarships- get in the mode that the big enchalada didains all extra points and field goals - go for 2 ponts if and nd tds are scored - no field goals - weis ball go for it on 4th down -ist down or td - charlie is big on ''touchy feely'' kick th kickers off the team ''no excuses- may god strike me dead if i go for 3 or i after a td ''
