Countdown to Kickoff Day 93: Jonathan Terry

Jonathan Terry • Kicker • Redshirt Freshman • Castle Rock, CO

So far: Terry redshirted in 2018 and in 2019 he was “not on team roster”. I also was not on team roster in 2019, so I guess we have that in common.

What’s ahead: Not sure what’s going on at the kicker position. We currently only have two kickers on the roster (Terry and Joe DeLine) and neither have attempted a field goal at the college level. The only experienced kicker we have is Cayden Camper, and his status seems to be up in the air at this point. Maybe someone can call Boston College and see if they have a grad transfer kicker available?

Brewery nearest Castle Rock, Colorado: Rockyard Brewing Company

There are now six breweries in Castle Rock! I went with Rockyard because they’ve been around forever (1999) and I used to work in the office building across the parking lot and my old boss would buy me beers even though I was underage. Leadership!

I used to drink their Double Eagle Ale all the time, but it’s looks like they revamped their lineup and don’t make it any more.

Worst Yelp review for Rockyard:

Man, there are ton of one star reviews for this place, but Gary H’s was the best. Poor guy drove all the way down from Steamboat Springs just to have someone spill a beer on his baby. That’s just a funny thing to read. THEY SPILLED A BEER ON MY BABY.

I also like how one person found the review useful. I myself have a baby, perhaps I should avoid this establishment. **clicks Useful**

2017 Air Force, The No Punt Game

  • Final Score: Colorado State 28, Air Force 45
  • Line: CSU -9.5
  • Venue: Multipurpose Stadium

Brand new stadium, 6-2 record, 4-0 in the Mountain West. It’s easy to forget how good things were going in 2017 and how quickly it all fell apart in three consecutive, agonizing weeks.

The No Punt Game rounds out the trifecta of shit sandwich games towards the end the 2017 season, including the Boise Choke Job and the Wyoming Snow Game, which we’ve already covered. This game ranks lower than those two on my scale of devastation because it didn’t involve blowing an historic lead, our Mountain West title hopes were still alive, and because The Bronze Boot is cooler than the Ram-Falcon Trophy.

Me and a lot of Ram fans that I know refer to this game as the “No Punt” game, but that’s a bit of a misnomer because the Falcons did indeed punt. Upon further review, they kneeled on the ball their last drive of the game and their punter proceeded to kick it 69 fucking yards because of course he did.

A look at Air Force’s Drive Summary:

  • 11 plays, 75 yards, Touchdown
  • 7 plays, 24 yards, Interception
  • 13 plays, 75 yards, Touchdown
  • 5 plays, 75 yards, Touchdown
  • 5 plays, 13 yards, Halftime
  • 17 plays, 72 yards, Field Goal
  • 5 plays, 75 yards, Touchdown
  • 13 plays, 98 yards, Touchdown
  • 3 plays, -5 yards, Punt (WE DID IT!)

There is no other way to put it, that is the most dominating offensive performance ever. It is a perfect game. We’re not talking about fluky drives and short fields, the drove the length of the field on every single drive.

Worst part? This Air Force team wasn’t even that good. They’d finish the year 5-7. Their only other wins were against Virginia Military Institute (0-11), UNLV (5-7), UNR (3-9), and Utah State (6-7).

The game is here if you hate yourself and want to watch it:
