    Football: Men v. Boys

    Lively topic on Deadspin.

    Let's say there's a team of Oklahoma's HS all-stars vs. a team made up of NFL punters and kickers.

    who wins? On one hand, it's men v. boys. On the other hand, some of those boys are 250+. Most of the men would be in outstanding shape... but kickers. Could the boys pull off a win?

    Kickers are pussies.

    HS kids, wouldnt be close. Speed and strength would dominate.

    There's a reason those guys are kickers and punters (sorry Sponge).

    Morton Anderson at QB, Sebastian Janikowsky at RT and Donald Iqwebuike at the Slot. Thrown in Rafael Septien as a possession receiver and I'll put the NFL kickers against any OK high school all-star squad.

    If Uwe is playing, the kickers win.

    I think every LSU punter can run a 4.4 as well - and cover better than some of our gunners. Must be that SEC speed.

    Danny White, QB and Punter. Kickers win.

    High School would win, but I remember USC having a punter a few years back that was huge and dominated at the bench press...there aren't many of those guys though

    He was at Dallas before they got bailey. His name was buehler or beeper or something like that. He was a badass. Supposedly the coach made him quit racing the other guys because he would win and piss everyone off.

    HS Stars hands down. Reggie Roby was a multiple time pro-bowl kicker and he wore a gold watch while he played. That should end the discussion.

    I agree talking football has anyone got their season football tickets notice yet? I don't think they will cost more but they have cost more every year.

    Haven't received the notice in the mail, but I DID get my email and they are available to be renewed online... so you can just login and see for yourself how much they are. But, mine are the same price, I believe.

    kickers with speed and power

    Dont remember who it was, but I do remember when a kicker had an angle, but caught Deion Sanders on a return. I think it was New England's, not 100% sure though. Also, David Buehler could bench like 450, kid is stout as any high school lineman. But I would still go with the kids, just b/c of the overall team speed and power.

    At Memorial Stadium, North end zone, one of the ramps has a player from OU, lineman I believe, but he's down in his 3-point stance and u can see he's got his watch on. I've always remembered seeing that from quite some time ago.

    Kickers because most of these guys started out in high school just being football players who could kick a little bit
    and became specialists. But the big factor is they are men who practice along side the best players (and coaches) in the
    world. They've learned more tricks & have much more football sense. If nothing else, they would keep the bubble-
    gummers buried with terrible field position.
