        He was good on the field goals but something is wrong on kickoffs.

        Whitt acknowledged that was the only troubling thing about the game. He said they are going to work on it.

        It looks like we are game planning around this inability. All of the kickoff a were to the same half of the field, and other than the one long return, we seemed to trap Oregon in the corner all night.

        I’m fine with forcing a return if that’s your strategy and yesterday Utah put Oregon in some tough field positions and benefited from it. But there are times when you need to put it through the endzone and not risk the return.

        he is trying too hard and its causing him to have tension imo. Needs to kick free and loose.

        He kicked the first couple into the end zone and the rest he kicked just short of the goal line. I think it was planned to kick it higher (resulting in shorter kicks) so we could get down the field to cover the return man.

        Anyone remember Brian Lewis? He would constantly send it out of the back of the endzone (kickoffs from the 30 back then). I think his beer gut gave him extra power, no reason Philips can’t do the same.

        Do we have a 2nd string kicker with a bigger leg? Can Hackett kick from a tee?
