L-R: Some guy, another guy, GPA booster, The Greatest Football Player Ever In The History of Everything, some guy, some guy that shouldn't shave his head.A somewhat quiet Friday has suddenly turned into the event of the pre-season. Today, Syracuse Athletics published its official preview of the Orange's special teams unit. In pertinent part:
Senior Brendan Carney returns to handle the punting and kickoff duties for the Orange in 2006. Carney was an All-BIG EAST First Team selection in 2005 after ranking 24th nationally and first in the conference in punting average (42.6). He also set single season records for punts 982) and most punting yardage (3,491). He enters the season second at Syracuse all-time in punting average (42.8), and third in most punts (199) and punting yardage (8,513). Carney also handled kickoffs for the Orange in 2005, averaging 62 yards a kick.I don't care how many "Zoltan For Heisman" t-shirts Brian sells, Brendan Carney is still the strongest punter eligible for Heisman consideration.
Plus he's American, and these colors don't run.
