How hard is it to kick the Ficken ball through the Ficken uprights!?!?!

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Way to make a guy who probably already feels like dogshit feel even

Penn State coaches were probably yelling the English translation of
Ficken's name after the missed kicks. (If you do not know German use
google translate) No joke!

I actually feel bad for the kid. He's got to be in a catatonic state after that game. It was Murphy's Law. Rooting against PSU is always fun, but that was just sad to watch.

agreed about feeling bad for him, but also not surprised that they are doing an open tryout, hard to believe there isn't one guy (or girl) in all of PSU that couldn't do better than that.  Although the extra point seemed to be more bad blocking than bad kicking.

Ehh, I kind of feel bad for him, but the fact that he missed 4 field goals is pathetic. If any of them were under 40 yards that is ridiculous, because if you played soccer or kicked at all, anything under 40 is pretty easy.

anything under 40 is pretty easy.

really?  that must be why no team ever misses extra points or field goals...

tough luck for ficken. being a kicker is not a job id sign up for. its not the most complicated job on the field, but if you have one bad day, youre getting death threats on twitter. ill watch from the stands thank you very much

After watching the lowlights of the game, It seemed like he was trying to kick the hell out of it. I was never a kicker in my playing days, but it seems like its more technique than anything.  I tried kicking PAT's for fun in HS practice, once I stopped kicking it as hard as I could, I started making them. lol
