    well I guess Aguayo can use that for an excuse too! As far as I’m concerned the game board during the Red Zone should go to a neutral color including the kicking in ALL STADIUMS.

    Good grief! I’ve heard it all now. Don’t most kickers keep their head down? Perhaps we could show the bouncing cheerleaders on the board next time. That always distracts me.

    Maybe he’d prefer a target. How about a picture of a scowling Coach Ron Rivera? Didn’t hear fellow FSU kicker Sebastian Janakowski complain about his misses being the fault of the video screen.

    We need to ask Roberto what picture he prefers. It can’t hurt.

    The bouncing cheerleadets would definitely distract me scubog.
    Now that we know what is distracting, i hope we keep it up.
    Favorite kicker story was when one kicker in training camp told his coach that John McKay made him nervous while watching him kick.
    Mckay, of course, quipped, “please inform the player I intend to be at every game doing the same thing thing.”
