March 23: Bill Stewart and the Punt
By Paul Myerberg // Mar 23, 2011
This might tell you something about Bill Stewart’s offensive philosophy, right? These coaching clinics are so commonplace that one could theoretically attend two a week every week from spring through fall, so there’s no doubt that it takes an inventive man to find a topic not already covered. Hence Stewart’s lecture on the punt, which is not, as West Virginia’s soon-to-be retired coach might attest, the greatest play in college football. Well, unless you’re Auburn. And it’s Dec. 2, 1972, and Alabama holds a 16-0 lead with about nine minutes left in the fourth quarter. There – there’s a time when a punt might be the greatest play in college football.
