And now we know a little more of the rest of the story.
Florida State’s primary punter the last three years, Logan Tyler, maintained that job for the season-opening, come-from-ahead loss to Boise State. However, he was suspended for the Week 2 win over Louisiana-Monroe and, on Wednesday, Willie Taggart confirmed that the suspension will continue indefinitely because of what he described as unspecified violations of team rules.
The Tallahassee Democrat subsequently reported that Tyler is under investigation for a case involving a suspected DUI back in August. The Democrat obtained a copy of the police report connected to the incident:
Tallahassee police officers were dispatched to a traffic crash at 2:08 a.m. where a man was found unresponsive. The report says EMS officials were unsure if the victim was unresponsive “due to a possible injury or due to his level of intoxication.”
He was transported to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare in an ambulance following the crash. He became responsive during the ambulance ride, but was not coherent.
No serious injuries were noted, but the police report said he had a swollen left eye and abrasions to his face.
Including one game this season, Tyler has averaged 42.5 yards on his 209 punts during his career, with the average currently fourth in school history. His 82 punts and 3,545 yards in 2018 set a school record.
With Tyler sidelined, walk-on Tommy Martin averaged 42.8 yards per punt in Week 2.
