Classic “other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?” quote from John Lilly about his punting unit:
“We’ve made more impact plays this year on the punt team than we have in the six years I’ve been here,” said Lilly, whose unit was tops in the nation in net punting in 2009 at 41.95. “We’ve forced two turnovers, we got a successful fake and then you give up the big plays and it is disappointing. If you can throw out the two catastrophes, we’re up in the top five in America in net punting.”
Well, yay for that.
Georgia currently ranks 45th in net punting, in case you were wondering.
