Now that kicker Andre Heidari made four field goals and said he fixed his motion, it really raises the question of why this was not addressed sooner. I’m not referring to Heidari because kickers miss field goals every game but just overall special teams shortcomings.
USC had a blocked field goal (kicker completely blameless on it) and a miss against Washington State. Then there were two missed field goals against Notre Dame. A lot of factors go into misses, not just the kicker.
But if special teams came through in those situations, the Trojans are 7-1 right now and the season looks a lot different.
