I hope Gus doesn't put Daniel in there to punt like he did during A-Day. Daniel only needs to focus only on kicking those FG's and PAT's

Good thinking, A4E. I can tell you really mean this, by your use of bold lettering. 

How is the punting situation? I don't recall Shannon looking especially good during the a-day game.

Who cares? Offense is going to be so good that our punting will be practically non-existent this year. You heard it here.

Shannon missed A-DAY due to a death in the family. Carlson handled the punting duties.

Well there you go. Wasn't even Shannon I was watching. Thanks.

Stidham punted a few times for Baylor. Our fake-punt game is going to be off the charts.

 

OR WE CAN EVEN RUN THE FAKE FAKE-PUNT

Daniel Carlson is a very bad man, in a very good way.

We did run the pooch punt w/ Cam a lot. That was a different HC and STC, but Gus is no stranger to his QB being used for it.

I think Carlson returning for his senior year is the biggest keep of the season and it Isnt even close.

Daniel has secretly been practicing 70 and even 80 yard FGs and we will never actually punt this season. We will either score a touchdown or a field goal everytime we have the ball.  ;D

About the punting situation.. I know Shannon was out but why use Carlson at all? Don't we have other guys who need the practice more? Or are the rest so bad that Carlson is our #2 if Shannon is out? I really hope that's not it. lol

I'm more concerned that we end up burning a year of Little Carlson's eligibility making him a punter, if Shannon can't get the job done.

May have just been letting DC have a little fun getting some punts in during the spring game. Until proven otherwise, I'm assuming this isn't something that's really even on the table for the actual season

Tyler Stovall was the backup punter to Carlson. Watched him during warm-ups and he was not good at all. Had little distance on the punts that he did not shank.

Our backup punter is our holder? Seriously? At a P5 school?  Can Hastings punt?

This should be a more nuanced discussion. The question is injury risk. A few punts do not significantly tire a Carlson-level kickers leg so, is significantly better field position from consistently decent punts worth risking a clutch/auto 3 point kicker to injury during those punts? That's a tough one IMO.

Likely moot anyway - either Shannon gets his act together during the Summer or AU goes the Kevin Phillips/JUCO punter market again. If I had to guess.

Wasn't Hastings listed as a kicker when he first came to Auburn about 2 years ago?

Yes he was brought in as a kicker not a WR

Slightly different note but if we don't play for a natty this year then Daniel Carlson would be the first Auburn kicker since 2007 to never start a national title game during his career. He would also be the first Auburn kicker since 2002 to never start for an SEC Championship winning team.
