Texas kicker makes 80 yard field goal


Recommended Posts

After introducing the world to the backflip field goal kick last month, Texas kicker Nick Rose is back doing more ridiculous stuff and roundly refusing to chill out.

Here he is, smashing an 80-yard field goal like it’s a routine extra point attempt. There’s a bit of coarse language in there, but once you actually see the kick, you’ll understand why.

No really Force. While he took one extra step than a normal field goal attempt, he did not get a running start as a kick off would.

Using a tee alone gets the kicker further distance than having a holder simply because of positioning. And, more importantly, the ball would have been blocked at the LOS regardless. Plenty of NFL kickers can make this long distance kick without considering the LOS.


Look at this guy kicking for height and distance. His 80 yd tries come up just short because he's actually adjusting for a game situation. His kicks are otherwise the same as the other link.



Anyway, that's why I call that a kickoff, not a field goal.
