Haven't ever seen a performance like that from a punter. Might be similar to a golfer placing the ball 10" from the cup from the tee box on 4 consecutive holes using different clubs.

Has anyone seen a college basketball schedule yet? If you happen to see one, please college basketball know. Thx!

Yeah, ESPN has nothing. UVa is playing an early season tournament in Connecticut, and they have a game against Villanova, but that's all that's on the schedule at the UVa athletics page.

That is a dominating performance by a punter. Similar to when Michael Dickson (Seahawks punter) was named MVP of the Texas Bowl after a highlight performance of:

Dickson punted 11 times. Ten of those kicks were downed inside the Tigers' 15-yard line. Four of Mizzou's drives started inside its own 10. When the Aussie did finally get a chance to show off his big boot, he blasted the ball 58 yards. And one of his punts even set up a third-quarter safety.

My local college, Boise State, has released their Mountain West only college basketball schedule. They start with two games in the last week of 2020. As a season ticketholder I am amazed I have seen that much :)

I was watching a lot of Australian rules footy the last few months -- cheers to Richmond for taking the trophy -- and am amazed more teams don't bring over kickers. Given how well the kick with players holding or running into them I'd think they could place kicks just about anywhere needed.
