Playbooks on iPads are not quite as exciting for kickers


One of the perks of playing college football at a big program is getting an iPad loaded with the playbook on it every season. Today many players started getting their digital playbooks as camps start opening up. This tends to be a pretty exciting time for college football players, and they are surely advised not to share any of the information through public forums like Facebook or Twitter.

Sometimes players can get away with it. Kickers, for example, have a pretty simple role on a college football team. Kick the ball far on kickoffs and between the poles on extra point and field goal attempts.

Here is the playbook’s instructions to Oklahoma kicker Michael Hunnicutt.

    Alabama kicker instructions:

    If field goal attempt is returned, take a wide angle and try to force the runner out of bounds.

    UF: Surprise, you are going to be a recruiter instead and go find a guy who can kick like Caleb Sturgis did at UF, you will not be kicking at all.

    FSU: Try to avoid wide right (especially against Miami).

    Ray Finkle was added on to the roster later in the year and didn’t get his playbook.
