Why Not Just Have a Lineman Do It?

Rarely, and I mean RARELY, do I get fired up about something but the above question seriously upsets me. The more that Rubio Long Snapping grows and the more that Rubio Long Snappers get picked up for college, the more you will hear/read/see people that think they know what they are talking about in regards to football and Long Snappers.

These “experts” might be on Twitter, Facebook and blogs all over the country spraying their “wisdom” to anyone that will swallow it. 99.9% of the time it is REALLY, REALLY ignorant.

For instance, I saw something today on Twitter where someone was disgusted because their team had offered a Long Snapper a scholarship (given, it was a Rubio Long Snapper) and they simply couldn’t figure out why the coaches didn’t just make a lineman do it.

Here is the answer that you can feel free to cut and paste for the rest of your Long Snapping loving life….

Asking a lineman to become a Long Snapper is like asking a ’70s Cadillac El Dorado to drive like a 2015 Ferrari. They are two completely different types of machines meant to do two completely different things….kinda like a lineman and a Long Snapper.

End of discussion. Drops mic. I’m outta here!

  1. What if you had a 6’4″ 300 lb guy that could snap? Wouldn’t that be like a 2017 Ferrari with the comfort of a Cadillac Eldorado?

  2. “Rack ‘Em!”

  3. Gator pride says

    As long as that 300 lb linemen was fast enough to sprint down field to cove punts.
