Isaiah McKenzie's talent changed what our punt return approach is. The number of returns don't stand out so much, because that is pretty consistent much more consistent than I would have dreamed, but the yards gained per return increase is stunning.

And that really stands out when you look at Reggie Davis' return yards in 2014 vs. 2013. I can't say with certainty, but you have to think we worked more on punt return in practice than in years past, knowing McKenzie is a threat to break one. That contributes to Davis getting a couple of more steps when he does get the chance to return a punt.

On the one hand, I'm thrilled. On the other hand, I don't think this game will ever happen. It'll be light the Ohio State series. Maybe a 20% chance it every comes to pass.
