Alabama Football: Just for Kicks! Can Bama Start Converting More Field Goals?

Larry Burton (Syndicated Writer) Last season Alabama had a one two punch approach for field goals. Jeremy Shelly would do the short ones and Cade Foster the long ones.

That worked well on paper, but in reality Alabama finished the year making only 19 out of 25 attempts for a dismal 76% accuaracy mark.

That placed them in the bottom half of Division One teams. They placed 61st out of the 120 teams and it wasn't much better as they placed seventh out of 12 in the SEC.

Shelley was 12 of 16 for a 75% mark and Foster was seven of nine for a 77.8% score.

Stuck in the middle.

Nick Saban knows that little things matter. They lost to Auburn by one point
