Buckeye Kickers - 2005

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by Hollywood, Dec 15, 2004.

    Out of the guys that will be competing for the kicker positions, any idea what to expect? What have we seen from this years backups in practice? Are we going to have field goal and extra point problems like most schools now? With a good team coming back next year this could cost us a Big Ten title or even a NC.

    Trapasso will be in his second freshman year, Skeete will be on campus, Huston will be back for a 6th year, and we've got the Aussie rugby player too (not listed on the BP roster). We will certainly find a suitable kicker out of that group. Tressel lives on kicks, so I'm sure he's got it covered.

    Is Brian Pierce still with the team??

    I have a hard time forgetting how awful our kicking was when Nuge and Huston were freshman. It was horrible. Hopefully Huston improved from his freshman year like Nuge did. I hope Nuge taught all his tricks to the other kickers, but until you're in front of 100k fans with the game on the line, we're not going to know who has the sack to make the pressure kicks.

    :oh: :io:
     
  5. is he aussie or south african??

    Well, it took me forever to find the answer(s), but the Aussie kicker was David Lonie. He ended up transferring to Cal over us. The guy on OSU is Ryan Pretorius and he is from Wandsbeck, South Africa. From all accounts, he's got a big-time leg. He's also like 24 years old, which should mean he's a great leader among all the younger guys.

    DaytonBuck I've always liked them

    So our scholarship kickers next year will be Huston, Pettry and Trepasso?

    I think Huston will be an above average PK for us.

    You are forgetting Skeete, who will be a redshirt Freshman.

    CincyBuck88 Chad Henne is a b!tch

    He transferred out somewhere... OU I'm thinking?

    I'm sure Tress will get the best out of whoever's still here. Another BIG loss though is our long snapper, Kyle Andrews. I can't remember the last time there was a bad snap on a kicking play (of course, as a student and being wasted at all the home games and for most of the away ones for the last 5 yearscould be distorting my memory).

    Thanks for postig that article. Special Teams is going to go a long way in determining whether this year's team is simply very good or has a chance to be truly championship caliber.

    Good article. I'm glad Aaron is sticking with us and hope he is rewarded with much success in the near future for his patience. Definitely makes me root for the kid even more.

    True Buckeye!!!

    Thats the true Buckeye spirit! Unfortunately the situation doesn't seem great, but he could be the next great buckeye leg.

    is OSU kicker U?

    We have produced alot of great kikcers in the last 20+ years. Since 2000 we have had the best kickers in CFB.

    How do you think Josh Huston will do next season? IMO he will be 1st team B10 and maybe AA. I have read where Nugent says that Huston would have been all-conference and maybe AA last year if he was on a different team. I think we are in better shape than people think. There may be a dropoff but IMO not as severe as most of us think.
