The Golden Bears have quietly had one of the best kicking games in the entire nation the past few years thanks to kicker Giorgio Tavecchio and punter Bryan Anger (pictured).
Tavecchio finished his Cal career as a 2011 All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention while Anger won all-conference honors for three years in a row and was the nation's top punter in 2008 and 2010.
While the kicking game isn't flashy or prominent, someone has to get the job done and they need to do it well. A missed field goal or a muffed punt could cost you a very important game—just ask Stanford's Jordan Williamson.
Cal currently has two place kickers on the roster, Vincenzo D'Amato and Benjamin Calder, and they have one punter Jed Barnett. They will have very big shoes to fill unless recruit Cole Leininger (K) or some walk-ons join the team and blow them away.
