OK, but not any other position?

I mean, I get what you're saying (I think), but why should a kicker have to earn a scholarship more than anyone else? Some of these guys are devoting ten years pre-college to being elite kickers with camps and trainers and junk. Are you saying there's an endless pipeline of kickers that can be exploited to get the same results?

Because I can think of a few teams that definitely regretted that decision. Miami 2019 to Miami 2020 was a pretty clear example. Virginia went like two years without attempting a legitimate field goal.
