Proverbs 10:4 (NIV)
Lazy hands make for poverty,
but diligent hands bring wealth.
No, you sTFU. His only job is to kick FG's.
SEC SEC SEC!!!
I'm a kid as well and Bertolet is trash. I know a dozen kids from high school that can make inside 30 yds all fvckin day
I normally think USMC is waaaaay over the top, but I actually agree with him here...
Pretty sure when he got here he had just turned 17. Very young for his class at an age where boys are at extremes on maturity level. He'll get there. But he's pissing me the fvck off right now
You guys are going to be totally digging' Bertolet once he can control that cannon.
Took me a few years to perfect my craft as well
I sure hope you're right
& Imart is a porn star!
I just rewatch the game. This guy has got to go. He's terrible.
You are either going to be a leader or not. to be a leader, you throw your shoulders back, tits to the sky, head up, cock out.
That should be your clue to reevaluate your position.
We've got a fish kicker. He's the only scholarship kicker on the team. We're In a bit of a scholly crunch for the 2013 class. No way a kicker gets another scholly. Now maybe open tryouts in the spring for a walkon slot, otherwise bertolet is our guy for the next 16 games or so.
Talk about pulling his scholarship is the reactionary decision of someone who can't see beyond today.
Do I like the misses? No way. What's the alternative?
The true test of a man's intelligence is how much he agrees with you.
Having an open scholarship available to someone that will take advantage of it.
Calm down, I hadn't seen his earlier post. What I quoted from him was basically frustration in that the kid's one and only job is to kick FGs. There's no excuse for him to be this bad at it, regardless of classification. I'm not so sure I wouldn't be opposed, though, if the coaches encouraged him to consider transferring to a school closer to home. We don't have room for multiple kickers on scholarship, but that doesn't mean Bertolet has to be the guy for four years if better options are out there. They don't have to pull his scholarship if it's his choice to leave...
You can pull his scholarship, but that still puts you in a bind for 2013 recruits. Are you suggesting we give one of the three remaining spots to a kicker and turn down Savage or RSJ? There's a lot of talent that we're in the mix for, and you want one of our 25 signees in 2013 to be a kicker? Pulling his scholarship settles the 85 schollys per school issue; it doesn't address the 25 NLI per year issue.
Not to mention that we would have another freshman kicker next fall. Could be in a similar position as we are now. Except that we had to turn down some top notch talent to get said freshman kicker in place.
Kickers are always iffy. Other positions are more predictable. I'll take a 4* LB, or ATH that we've been working on for 12 mos over scrambling to find someone at a position sumlin and company haven't even explored.
Very well stated Jeff.
Maybe we could sign a JUCO kicker? If the recruit is a mid-term guy then it won't affect the scholarship limit... Am I right?

Not positive, but I think Flowers is the sixth Dec grad. You'd have to trap door someone. Wouldn't go over well.
I think we are stuck with bertolet through 2013. If he is shaky early next season, then you start recruiting the position. I would also entertain walkons. Wouldn't hurt to let Bertolet know where he stands.
Yea I just hope he gets better.. It's pretty evident that the kicking game is one of the weak spots on this team.
Then make him kick every day until his leg falls off, or until it becomes so automatic that he doesn't think about it anymore.
