    Congrats to Jon Thoma, who has also been granted a scholarship, per the official press release for Minnesota. As far as eligibility, Jon is a redshirt sophomore.

    He's had his hands full this year, with bad snaps..

    Does this mean one less ship for an upcoming class? Or is this just for the fall quarter?

    Nobody really is saying much about him for the upcoming season, but i'm very interested to see how it goes with him. We all know Tressel knows the importance of great special teams. The obvious questions are about the punting, but also with Trapasso gone, Petry will need a new holder, which I would assume would be Thoma. Things should work well there, but you always like to have the same holder/kicker combo if you can, just makes things smoother...they get a connection. But we know Thoma is a fine holder. I think Thoma needs a beard. That would obviously help him.

    In my professional opinion Thoma is the better punter right now and will win the job for next year. A little competition is great for everyone.

    That would be my guess too, but I know far less about the situation than you do. But it's definitely one position that I am very interested in this year.

    I don't know much about the "situation" but I do know he's the better punter right now from what I can see.

    I have not seen either of them this Spring with the exception of seeing Thoma working out one day on his own with some guys (Pettrey and LS McQuaide). Pettrey has a MONSTER leg! I can not foresee anything that will keep Thoma from winning the job. His grasp of the Aussie style "pooch punt" impressed me the most! I look for Thoma to grab the Bull by the Horns and run with it!

    Do you think we'll see more of the "pooch punt" style punts if Thoma wins the job?

    I've never really been a fan of that style, but I understand the positives.

    Your post is a bit confusing. Are you suggesting that I came across as saying that Thoma is just a "pooch punter" and if he gets the job that's what he's going to do? Are you talking about the "aussie style" of pooch punts or pooch punts in general? Not getting what you're asking.

    Thoma will use the "aussie style" like AJ did when it's time to pooch the ball inside the 20 otherwise it's punt away (hang and distance).

    [sarcasm] Does it even matter? I mean, Tressel doesn't even care about special teams, let alone the kicking game, does he? To listen to you guys on here, you'd think it was the most important play in the game or something....[/sarcasm]
