A big knock I have on Withers is the bad special teams. He said on Cats Caravan Dallas that his least favorite player is the kicker but that is one of the best players on our current team. Just line up and have Kaba kick the ball. There is no reason to get adventurous on special teams.


Kaba is the punter, not the kicker. Our placekickers have struggled all year and we have a walk-on starting over a scholarship player right now.



Kaba was a K last year and wasn't very good at all.

All of the weird formations they used for punts in the first few games. The last couple of games were more conventional. Just line up and kick the ball. Even the Bobcats usually get that right.

I seem to remember an earlier game where were on the left hash, on the punt our entire line loaded up the left side and the return team used the empty 2/3 of the field to run it back for a TD or almost a TD.. Dumbest play i've ever seen.

you just watched 5 years of fran and it was the dumbest you've ever seen? you're a fan of a team that took a knee w/ 1:16 and 3 time outs to go to over time and it was the dumbest you've ever seen?

definitely didn't hurt us vs ulala

4th and 4 at TXST41 Kaba, Lumi punt 38 yards to the UL21, fair catch by Varnado, Levarious.
4th and 8 at UL49 Kaba, Lumi punt 40 yards to the UL9, fair catch by Varnado, Levarious.
4th and 17 at TXST05 Kaba, Lumi punt 62 yards to the UL33, downed.
4th and 8 at TXST42 Kaba, Lumi punt 47 yards to the UL11, fair catch by Varnado, Levarious.
4th and 16 at TXST09 Kaba, Lumi punt 14 yards to the TXST23, out-of-bounds, PENALTY UL holding 10 yards to the TXST33, 1st and 10, UL ball on TXST33.
4th and 8 at TXST24 Kaba, Lumi punt 55 yards to the UL21, fair catch by Wright, Jordan.

for the year we have the #45 punt defense in the nation, giving up 6.17ypr, and are 16th in net punting at 41.3ypp. 0 blocked punts. we've punted 50 times so far, tied for 3rd most.
lumi is 18th in punting at 44.4ypp. he's our best shot at an nfl player off this team.

there is plenty to complain about. punting isn't one of them.
