Well, isn’t that special . . .


As in special teams.

In Day 7 of our position-by-position outlook, we take a look at all aspects of the kicking game, from punting, placekicking, kickoffs and returns.

You might be surprised to know Eric Richards will do a little punting, in addition to his kickoff duties. He’ll even attempt some long-range field goals. Needless to say, he has quite the powerful leg.

On Sunday, our week-long journey concludes with a look at the quarterbacks. In addition, our football tab will also be in Sunday’s paper.

And just in case you missed any of this week’s stories, here you go:
• Sunday: Running backs
• Monday: Linebackers
• Tuesday: Receivers
• Wednesday: Defensive backs
• Thursday: Offensive line
• Friday: Defensive linemen

    Why go to Tulane when you could be a Mississippi State Bulldog?

  3. warbirdz44 Says:

    Because Tulane is a top 10 business school nationally and that’s what I want to do.

    For us ole retiree’s:

    Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, ‘Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break’? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a ‘Nazi.’ He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a ‘doughnut eating Gestapo.’ He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn’t care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, ‘Obama in ’08 .’ I try to have a little fun each day now that I’m retired. It’s important to my health.
