Serious Q, Is CSU football WRU or PunterU?

As much as I have loved watching the recent pipeline of game breaking WRs including 2 Biletnikoff finalists in the last 5 years (and potentially another one in 2020), we've also had Ray Guy finalists during the same era and prior in our punt game. Punters don't put points on the board or make bone crunching tackles but are THE most important defensive player on every team.

And for all the (well deserved) hype Warren Jackson is getting right now, the more accomplished player is still Ryan Stonehouse.

We have had a longer history of straight stud punters for the past, what, 20 years perhaps? I cannot even think of all the great punters we've had. And while none have stuck in the NFL, we've had a great run of punters and it looks like Stonehouse just might be the best of the bunch when it's all said and done (although Hayden Hunt's junior year was simply spectacular with only 1 touchback all season = unheard of stat).

Stud punters that I can remember, if I miss any please add to the list:
* Hayden Hunt
* Jimmy Kaylor
* Pete Kantodiakos (sp?)
* Was it Babcock who was a punter & kicker for us?

And because these guys were each 3-4 yr starters for us, they generally locked down those positions for years making the run seem so long. To have any ONE of these guys as our punter over the last 20-30 years would be good enough but having all these guys is just an amazing run of super talented punters.

So, are we WRU or PU (lol)??

  That's called net punting, which is a stat that is tracked. -- bigballinram21 07/29/2020 3:21PM
  Name one punter who made it to the NFL. ** -- Whos your Rammy 07/29/2020 1:28PM
  Forgot Babcock did both for a few years. -- bigballinram21 07/29/2020 12:09PM
  Hell of a punter list right there!! -- OC Ram 07/29/2020 4:28PM

  We were sixth in that nation in net punting -- bigballinram21 07/29/2020 3:16PM
