It’s a punting party!

If you found yourself a little concerned about the punting situation after watching the G-Day game, apparently you weren’t alone.

Murray State punter Landon Stratton announced on Sunday he will be a graduate transfer at Georgia. Stratton joins the Bulldogs with one year of eligibility left…

It is unclear whether or not Stratton will be a walk-on with the Bulldogs.

Stratton averaged 40.4 yards per punt for the Racers last season, good enough for third in the Ohio Valley Conference. He started at punter the past three seasons for Murray State and averaged 41.2 yards per punt during that time.

Sure, on paper he’s no Nizialek, but he is experienced.  Butt notes that puts five players in the mix for the punting gig, once Jake Camarda arrives.  This move would appear to indicate the staff still has concerns about Long’s recovery and doesn’t want to put all its eggs in one basket on a true freshman at the position.  All in all, should make for an interesting August..

    Cheney should just call plays that result in first downs. Simple.

    Not a good omen for Marshall Long. But there is an opening at Murray State.

    This to me is an example of the kind of attention to detail that the prior staff just didn’t have. I can’t recall the prior administration ever ensuring that every base was covered to the degree possible by taking action such as this.

      On that note, one would be foolish to overlook Nizialek’s contribution last season. Those are important shoes to fill.
