Freshman Punters Fight it Out in Alabama

The Crimson Tide looks like it will be counting on a couple of Freshman when it comes to getting the ball downfield on 4th down:

The performance of the various punters that Alabama trotted out during spring practice was nothing short of horrific. The good news, though, like I wrote following the game, was that in reality none of those punters were likely ever going to see the field this Fall. For better or for worse, it was always going to be a battle between two true freshmen, Jay Williams and Cody Mandell.
It's amazing that a big team like Alabama finds themselves counting on Freshmen for punting duties.  One would think they could have developed a few veterans.
