      FUDGE!! I had this huge post written out, then the site crashes on me.

      Okay, one reason: Ernster had a bad night kicking (not on punts, he was pretty good about that) tonight.

      Second: Our team kinda self-destructed on ST. Our bend-dont break defense is great for keeping an opponent out of the endzone (usually). Yet when the opposing offense marches down into your territory and punts, they are usually going to get a favorable spot inside the 20. When the offense can't move the ball it also hurts because we continually have to kick out from eep in our territory.

      Third: We have faced some darn good punters.

      Colquitt: 39.9 yards NET average. With 22 I20.
      Kyle Larson: 38.5 yards NET avg. With 25 inside the 20

      and yet we make some non-elite kickers look HoFish:

      Shane Lechler: 36.6 Net, 19 I20. Similar to Ernster, yet Ernster is more accurate with kicks inside the 20.

      Now Ernster isn't elite, but I wanted to point out why we kept the young, versatile kicker/punter over Sauerbrun.

        Relax, very few punters have good first seasons starting. He's average in the league. Next year he'll show us why he's starting.

          Okay, lets look at the stats. Now, I had to add today's game by hand, so you BETTER enjoy this, get an epiphany, and buy me a cookie.

          Kickoffs:

          Ernster 2006 Season:

          Average: 67.9 yards
          Average return: 26.9 yards (with our crap coverage team).

          I usually don't include touchbacks and returned #s, since it depends on how many times you score. Yet Sauerbrun only had 4 more kicks, so I'll include it.

          Touchbacks: 19
          Returned: 55

          Sauerbrun 2005 Season:

          Average: 65.4 yards
          Average Return: 25.3

          Touchbacks: 14
          Returned: 64

          So, on any day but today, Ernster kicks the everloving crap out of Sauerbrun.

          Punts:

          Ernster 2006:

          Average: 41.7
          Net Average (the one that matters): 36.5
          Inside 20: 23
          Touchbacks: 7

          Sauerbrun 2005:

          Average: 43.8
          Net average (the one that matters): 38.0
          Inside 20: 24
          Touchbacks: 6

          And for fun: Sauerbrun 2006 TAKE THESE WITH A GRAIN OF SALT

          Average: 40.8
          Net Average (the one that matters): 15.3
          I wont include the other two. Now he was playing for a different team, and that return by Pacman skews the Net. So this one was just for fun.

          So on punts, Ernster is slightly (not much) worse than Sauerbrun. About a 1 yard difference.

          In conclusion, you guys still think Ernster (who is cheaper, younger, and CLEAN) is worse than Sauerbrun?

          Im glad this is my last one of these for the year.....

          what this stat does not show is actual hang time. saurbratens punts were so high that our special "ed" teams that we had were able to get down the field and cover the punts vertually pinning the other team backwards.
          with ernsters there really wasnt that much time and did anyone but me notice ersnsters punt to our own 40 against the 9ers?
          sorry i'll have saubraten back anyday
          thank god its football season again

          broncos and yankees--champions go together

            Ummm...thats what Net Punt average shows.

            Net punt average is the punt minus the return. So if Sauerbrun's kicks were "so high that we could run down and pin them back", his net punt average would be MUCH higher.

            So no, the stats show it.
