My son and I discussed this a few weeks ago -- what is more impressive (1) throwing a football 55-60 yards or (2) punting a ball 60-65 yards.   We both decided 2.  During pregame, OM had three quarterbacks standing in the north end zone stretching their arms and each was throwing the ball to the 50.  They had 2 punters and neither could consistently punt it 50 yards.   I think punting a football that distance is one of the toughest things to do in sports.   It is akin to hitting a hickory shafted driver 225 which I am informed Golf could routinely do back in his prime playing days.

thanks for posting. you are right punters get little love but a ton of grief if they mess up.
