Samuda's time with Minnesota might be cut short. Hoping this is nothing serious.

As we walked towards Camp Randall Stadium for the Wisconsin game last year having one more Captain and coke, a Wisconsin fan asked my buddy who is our best player was and my buddy responded with " our punter", who then proceeded to have a terrible game. Then after the game ran into his parents-who were very nice folks.
Anyway yes we need improvements in all facets of the kicking game.
You bring the warm clothes tomorrow nite, I'll be bringing some Berkshire Brewing beverages and a cigar
