Wednesday morning links — Rasp gets his kicks in, and more

There weren’t a ton of positives out of the Arizona game, obviously, but one guy who has somewhat surprisingly kept doing his job well through the ups and downs of this season is punter Kiel Rasp, something I detailed in my story for today’s paper. I say somewhat surprisingly largely for the fact that he wasn’t even on the roster when camp began in August.
Fans weren’t the only ones concerned when Will Mahan suffered a season-ending knee injury and Rasp suddenly was thrust into duty.
“I think we were worried a little bit about it,” said UW safety Nate Williams. But once he showed what he could do we were all confident in him.”
And so far, Rasp has done his job at a school-record pace.
Rasp is averaging 44.9 yards per kick, which would shatter the school record.
Here are the top five seasons:
Sean Douglas, 2006, 43.2
Skip Boyd, 1973, 43.0
Douglas, 2005, 42.6
Douglas, 2004, 42.6
Jeff Partridge, 1982, 42.4
