    Wasn't he asked by an ABC person during the week at what point on the field he feels automatic, and he said something like "our 43".

    Somebody with a tape could probably give an exact distance, but the conversation was comparing hitting a golf ball too hard to kicking too hard and they asked Nugent at what point he didn't feel that he needed to kick it hard.

    I just have this one little incident to share with you all about Mike Nugent. In December of 2001 i went down to a OSU practice in Tampa when they were getting ready to play South Carolina in the Outback. I took my cam-corder along but I had to clear it with Bob Tucker, Director of OSU Football.

    On the practice field i was standing around some OSU players and had no idea who some of them were. This one young man started talking to me and was asking if i was a new media reporter with the camera. I kind of looked at him trying to recognize but I couldn't. I told him i was just a fan and wanted to get some action shots of the practice. He asked where i was from and told him. As we talked i notice that he was not really a big kid like the rest of the players for Ohio State but he did were a high number like 85 and thought he was something like a wide receiver. Somebody else was out there kicking field goals at the time.

    We talked about the nice warm weather and said i was lucky to live in Florida. Then a horn souned and they all went to different groupings and that was the end of the talk. When I was home after the 2002 season started, I noticed a number 85 kicking the field goals and it was Mike Nugent, the same young man that was chatting with me on the practice field in 2001 at Tampa. I ran the tape of the practice session and sure enought it was him. And didn't even know it. I think about that incident every time i see him Kick. Yeah.... Nuuuuuuuuuuge is right.

    OK...what round will he get drafted? I can see him going 3rd round, which is high for a kicker

    If I remember correctly I think that kick was his first ever, at any level, game winning fg.

    If Janakowski was a first rounder, Nugent is.

    Wherever Nate Kaeding got drafted this year is where Nugent will get drafted.

    I would consider his field goal against Purdue a game winner, even though they didn't know it would be the game winner at that time. Any field goal in overtime has to feel like it's make it or lose.
