      I believe he is also 2 for 2 on fake punts.  I coldn’t find stats this is just my recall.

      I actually would take a touchback or two in favor of pinning more inside the 10/5. Haven’t been many of those at all this year. Even when kicking from the 45 hes gone conservative putting them between the 15 and the 10

      Alabama’s punters stats suck because they never punt.

      It would be interesting to see a stat that tracks % of the field rather than just yards. If a guy punts a 50 yarder from his own 20 that’s nice but a 40 yarder from the opponent’s 45 is better.

        This got me curious so I went through the play by play for each game and figured it out. Through 6 games he’s averaging 44.5 yards per punt and on average he’s kicking from the Utah 36. Factor in the small amount of return yards against and his net punting efficiency, or whatever you want to call it, is 67.3%. For comparison’s sake, our opponents net punting efficiency for this season is 56.9%. His best punt was his last, against Arizona. A 55 yard punt downed at the 2 for a cool 96.5%. Not sure what all of this tells us, but hey it’s something.
