I know it has probably been discussed to death elsewhere but I was still laughing today about that Citadel-punt-instantaneous Bulls touchdown debacle last night.  Total package with a penalty to push the punter further back in the endzone, a muffed snap and whiffed kick right into nearby receiver's hands.  It should be on all-time football follies reels.  The only thing better than the play was the official stats for it:

Punt for minus 10 yards

0 yards return for a touchdown.

🤣

I was really surprised that he did not take the safety. 

Wasn't giving up.  Didn't pay off, but respect him for trying.

Think how different this play would have been last season - chances are someone would have hit the punter and drawn a flag or there would have been no one there to catch the ball

I was impressed that all the special teams players held their positions, then Dollison is not only in perfect position to catch the ball, but has perfect awareness of field position in-order to stay inbounds for the TD

This play alone gives me hope that some of our coaching woes are behind  us

I think you may be giving this play entirely too much credit, really poorly done by the Citadel and we were fortunate however this team was much better prepared than last year.

Maybe - but during Charlie’s three years, we had 2 kick returns for TDs (both Horne’s against GT), 0 punt returns for TDs and 1 fumble return for a TD (USF gave-up 8 over these three categories in the same time period)

I am hopeful that this play is the start of something better

CCS was a joke, I agree that better days are ahead for us.
