A largely unspoken aspect of ND's good run this year has been the ability for the Irish to flip the field with Tyler Newsome at punter, and pretty good confidence that anything inside 40 yards is 3 points. I would think that'd change the entire approach to the game.

As we head into next year, are we relying on a freshman punter and Doerer for kicking?

I appreciate the knowledge.

Looks like the kicking...punting should be good for the next few years.
