    True, Hokie, the Panthers organization has a lot to figure out at the end of the season, from who will be the GM and HC, and what to do about the many needs of the team.

    Thanks, Ken. I remember Pat Summerall. It's interesting that kickers were once position players, and now for the most part, they play a very specialized role on teams.

    I believe four kickers were drafted last year - none higher than the 6th round. If you're going to go that low, you may be better off as a free agent.

    If memory serves me correctly, Sebastian Janikowski was picked in the 1st round out of Florida State. Ray Guy was picked around #5 or 6 overall as a punter from Southern Miss, I believe. The first one ever picked was I think one of the Gogolak brothers. Before that era, kickers were also position players, not specialists. Lou Groza, Pat Summerall and George Blanda were the ones I remember the best.

    I agree. The Panthers don't even know what they will be doing after the season at this point IMO. I do think that Rivera will be out.

    Good question; I have no idea. The Panthers cheaped out last year and wanted a FG kicker that can also punt, and that didn't turn out very well. THey never should have let Kasay go.

    I'd love to see him in a Panther's uniform, but I have no idea what direction they're going in.

    Wishing him the best. Get well and kick on Sundays.

    Probably more than duke players get drafted. Barth's brother is the kicker at Tampa Bay.

    Now that was just cold:)

    Smack talk aside, I feel worse for Barth than I do for Carolina. He was injured last year, and he's injured again this year; I hope that doesn't hurt his NFL draft chances.

    He will be a Pro, no doubt about it.

    Sadly the less intelligent crowd here (Dookies) had to make unintelligent comments.

    It is no wonder why they feel that it is appropriate to put on black face at their parties.

    What good is 3 points when the opponent is scoring 68?

  • PacknoPride Nov 14, 2012

    Keep up roy. We not going to a bowl this year. We won our bowl against state college. Field goal are one of the most important part of the game. Duke won against Carolina with a field goal that hit the bar and fell inside for 3 pts. Unlike Maryland's that hit the bar and fell outside the goal for no 3 pts. and a Maryland loss. It's really kind of funny. Big, strong players go out and battle it out all game, then an ex soccer player comes out and wins the game for them.

    there go your bowl chances :)

    ^^^^^

    I just read the article in the N&O and you're absolutely right. I hate that he's going to miss the rest of the season, even if it is only two more games. He's already broken the records at Carolina; just imagine how much more impressive his numbers would be if he didn't miss a chunk of last year as well.

    BOOOOO!

    Looked like he hyper-extended his knee when he got run into against Ga. Tech.
    Presumably related to that...

    BOOOOOO!

    Jeff Gravely reported that Casey Barth is done for the year with an "undisclosed" injury. This is bad news for the Heels. Although there are only two games remaining in the season, Barth was money kicking FG's and PAT's. I hope that whatever his injury is, it won't prevent him from playing on Sundays.
