Another Colquitt joins the list

A note recently posted on this website incorrectly noted that Dustin Colquitt has a 45.5 yard punting average that would rank second on UT's all-time single season list (behind Uncle Jimmy and ahead of dad Craig) if he can maintain it through the Vols' upcoming Peach Bowl game with Maryland.

Actually, Colquitt's average is 43.2, not 45.5. The mixup occurred when this writer misread an SEC release to say his average was 45.5 yards FOLLOWING the Kentucky game. Upon closer inspection, the release said Colquitt's average was 45.5 FOR the Kentucky game.

Here is the corrected list of UT's single-season punting leaders:

1. Jimmy Colquitt (46.9 in 1982)
2. Craig Colquitt (45.0 in 1977)
3. Kent Elmore (44.3 in 1988)
4. Ron Widby (43.8 in 1966)
4. Jimmy Colquitt (43.8 in 1981)
6. Neil Clabo (43.6 in 1973)
7. Dustin Colquitt (43.2 in 2002)

Since bowl performances are included in individual statistics this season, Dustin might be able to climb as high as fourth place on UT's all-time single-season punting list with a big outing against Maryland.
