Georgia’s opened up the competition at punt snapper again.
Trent Frix and Nathan Theus are competing this week for the gig after punter Collin Barber couldn’t handle a high snap from Frix in the loss at Vanderbilt on a costly special teams blunder.
“We’ve kind of opened the competition back up and really analyzed what both those guys are doing,” said assistant coach John Lilly, who oversees the unit and makes the decision. “That’s the great thing about an open week. It gives you a little bit more time to work on some of those things. I think we’ve cleaned up maybe some of the techniques things that maybe could cause something to go awry. We’ll find out as we play the rest of the season.”
I don’t have a problem with competition, even this late in the season… but why stop at two? If Tennessee could pull a place kicker in from a frat house, you’d think on a 30,000-plus person campus Lilly could find somebody to walk on and snap the ball.
