Are We Better Than Alabama's Kicker?

The 2012-2013 season is still a month off, but we're currently in "ramp-up" mode behind the scenes here at TFG. We've got some trivia posts coming up for the start of the season, then our usual rankings, predictions, and conference projections.

But first ...

In the wake of the 2011 regular season Alabama-LSU game -- which LSU won 9-6 after the Alabama kicker missed 4 out of 5 FGs from 40+ yards -- Eddie and I wondered how hard it was to kick field goals. Given that even one extra made field goal would have lead to an Alabama win and reduced much of the debate leading up to the title game, it has been bugging us ever since.

So one Sunday morning we went to a local high school. This was the result, in all its horrible glory.
