    I cannot recall the last time. It is such a huge momentum changer.

    One more horrible performance metric for Neinas.

    Probably the same game as the last CU touchback.

    I think neinas thinks it's against the rules.

    As above. Utah in Boulder 2012. Mosley as a true Frosh.

    on the other side. I want to know why the Buffs never lick it out of the end zone. Is it strategy designed to cause a turnover? I say kick it out and remove the opportunity for a good return.

    The sad amendment to the Mosley return is that Utah ran the ensuing kick back, too.

    What about Spruce's onside kick return vs Cal in 2013...

    How often do teams take one back to the house? Seems like a bad metric.

    Punting average, kickoff average, net/gross, average starting position and FG percentage fall on the ST coach. This is a stretch.

    With the kicks from the 35, it makes it a lot tougher. Not only are there a lot of touch backs, but the coverage gets downfield faster and the kickers, if they want, can kick it shorter with more hang time.

    Even from the 35 we can't get a touchback... At home.

    That was so heart wrenching. Mosley's return tied the game up finishing a big comeback for the Buffs and then Utah got the win off that return.
