I was reading somewhere that the FG kickers were struggling, and I hadn't realized that Bonano had another year of eligibility.
It seemed that when given a chance, FINALLY, several games in last year,that Bonano was one of the few bright spots.
Any info on the punters would also be appreciated. Special teams play was probably the worst I can remember in Arizona history the last few years and I think all the coaches are invested in ST play from what I've read. Any news?

Yeah, place kicking is not going well. Rich has some highly touted walk on who is splitting time with J.B. and neither one are tearing it up.

Bonano and Jake Smith (Syracuse, Youngstown State) have been splitting the kicking duties. Smith has a big leg but has also had a few attempts blocked/partially blocked in scrimmage situations. Most of the time, the ball comes off his foot high and long ... but the consistency isn't there right now.
