West Virginia did not block a single punt in 2016, so it is trying some interesting methods to get after the punter during special teams drills this spring.

How about some tetherball? You’ll see what I mean.

I’m not sure how comparable that is to the ball coming off a punter’s foot while rushing at full speed, but WVU gets points for thinking outside the box.

Oh, and watch out for that ball, too, coaches. It comes in quicker than you’d think.

Ouch.
