Dead snap comes from the center to the QB, not the Long snapper to punter or holder.This might be the only thread I'll ever be able to post this in so . . .
I'm assuming the long snap is a spiral snap, it could hardly be anything else considering the distance . . . Does anyone know whether we are using the "dead snap" on snaps under center or in the gun . . . This article lead me to this question:
One of the most frustrating things in football can be a botched snap, but a decades-old technique is suddenly gaining popularity and changing how the ball gets from the center to the quarterback.www.espn.com
It depends on the center. Do we know who our center is this season?Yeah . . . I as much as said that in my post . . . Do you have an answer to my actual question, or no . . .
The importance of this position and having a snapping specialist was demonstrated by our opening game against UF in 1987, I think he was. I believe the final was 31-4, with us dominating Florida. The two safeties were bad snaps by our long snapper, Willis Peguese, who was a DL handling snapping duties as well. It might have been his first game and he was probably nervous in that madhouse--the OB was rocking that day.No one cares until there is a problem. No one ever talked about Jordan Butler because he got the job done. Clay James came in highly rated at this specialty position. Have several others on the roster. Is usually a walk on try out with the winner getting a scholarship. Any one have any inside knowledge?
