A CLOSER LOOK AT ANYTHING USUALLY REVEALS GOOD AND BAD - SO HERE'S A LOOK AT UT'S NEW KICKER

Let's be honest, new Texas graduate transfer kicker Trent Domingue was beat out at LSU after last season, so there's GOOD NEWS and BAD NEWS about the Longhorns' new kicker ....

 

GOOD NEWS ... Domingue started the 2015 season 10-of-10 on FGs.

 

GOOD NEWS ... That start by Domingue made him a Lou Groza Award semifinalist.

 

BAD NEWS ... Domingue finished the season 3-of-7.

 

BAD NEWS ... Domingue was just 2 of 6 on FGs when LSU was trailing in ballgames in 2015.

 

BAD NEWS ... Those last two pieces of bad news caused LSU to bring another kicker.

 

GOOD NEWS ... One of those two makes by Domingue while LSU was trailing last season came from 39 yards at Alabama with 2:22 left in the 2Q to tie the game 10-10.

 

BAD NEWS ... LSU lost to Bama 30-16.

 

GOOD NEWS ... In LSU's last regular-season game, a 19-7 victory over Texas A&M, Domingue made his first two FGs from 32 and 38 yards to put LSU up 6-0.

 

BAD NEWS ... In that same game against Texas A&M, Domingue missed his last three FGs of 25, 50 and 46 yards - all while LSU was trailing 7-6.

 

GOOD NEWS ... The other FG Domingue made while LSU was trailing last year came from 43 yards at Ole Miss.

 

BAD NEWS ... That 43-yarder at Ole Miss came late in the 3Q to cut the Rebels' lead to 24-10 ... and it came after missing a 27-yarder with 3:00 left in the 1Q that would have tied the game at 3-3.

 

GOOD NEWS ... Non-conference longs of 45 yards vs Eastern Michigan and 43 yards vs Western Kentucky. 

 

GOOD NEWS ... His longest FG in SEC play last season was that 43-yarder at Ole Miss in a 38-17 loss.

 

GOOD NEWS ... Domingue was 1-of-1 (32 yards) in a 45-21 win over Auburn 

 

GOOD NEWS ... Domingue was 2-of-2 (21, 37) in a 34-24 win at Syracuse 

 

GOOD NEWS ... He was 3-of-3 (26, 45, 22) in a 44-22 win over Eastern Michigan 

 

GOOD NEWS ... He was 1-of-1 (29) in a 45-24 win over South Carolina 

 

GOOD NEWS ... He was 2-of-2 (34, 43) in a 48-20 win over Western Kentucky   

 

GOOD NEWS ... Domingue didn't miss a FG in a 21-19 win at Mississippi State, in a 35-28 win over Florida or in a 31-14 loss to Arkansas.

 

BAD NEWS ... Domingue didn't attempt a FG in the Miss State, Florida or Arkansas games.

GOOD NEWS ... Domingue was 49 of 50 on extra points in 2015.

 

GOOD NEWS ... Did you see Texas' spring game? Domingue has to be better than the walk-on tryout we saw that day.
