Did a quick bit of crunching. At the very fastest (4.3s 40), a potential blocker could get to the punter in a straight line in just about 1.6 seconds. That means that the punter has just about a second to take a step and get the ball off. Now consider that it's rarely ever a straight line and rarely ever a 4.3s rusher. Even add another yard to the 15 yd drop and the time goes up to 1.72 seconds. A good long snapper = less chance of a blocked kick (unless you're Ben Buchanan).

Cheers to the Lady Buckeye rowers! For those that aren't familiar with rowing, winning a race by 3 seconds is about the equivalent over a boatlength (65 feet). That's usually considered a "comfortable" margin. Having the top 3 boats win by a combined 24 seconds is enormous, and should carry over into a great performance at NCAAs. I know at least one of those girls on the all-B1G teams is a local Upper Arlington product, too.

Saw it. He literally looks like how I think my dad would look at his first hip-hop concert. An air of uncomfortable to it, but still brings a smile to my face.
