BERKELEY -- Beyond our Two-Minute Drill, outlet conversation today with California special teams coordinator Mark Tommerdahl revealed some interesting nuggets. Between punt returner Donnel Pumphrey and kick returner Ra'Shaad Penny, San Diego State is one of the best return teams Tommerdahl has seen.
However, he does have a bit of insight into the minds behind the nation's second-best kick return unit of 2015: He's known the Aztecs' special teams coach for 30 years, and coached with head coach Rocky Long 20 years ago. Will that depth of knowledge be able to stop Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Year Penny? We'll find out on Saturday.
