The kicking game is just not even servicable. The punter cant even catch the snap let alone just punt the ball. that gave Umass a touchdown. The missed FG that is 3 pts. So far we are -10pts in special teams. Just Imagine if we didnt recover that fumble on failed attempt on the bouncing punt by gallon... that could have led to 17pts just off of special team screw ups. These kickers are scholarship players? The kick offs are barely make it to the 5 yard line. This is a major aspect of the gm and it needs to be fixed quick especially if the game actually comes down to a FG. Cant they recruit people from the soccer team? i dont get it. This is Michigan why cant we get good kickers? I also think the Gallon experiement as Punt returner should be done also. what are your guys thoughts???
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
