The Gophers insurance policy at the position.

Smart add. Pretty risky to only have one punter on roster.
There must be a kicker or two that are the emergency punters, I assume. But obviously only 1 true punter on roster would be pretty risky.

He did not average 41.9 yards per punt last season, it was 36.2 yards. The 41.9 was from the 2020-2021 season.

Those averages are not elite.
Six more punts and two more inside the 20 in the 21-22 season with a long of 53 vs 65 the previous year. Perhaps he was being asked to be more strategic with punting? Working on hang time as apposed to just driving the punt?
