Michigan Kicker Providing A Blueprint For ALA & LSU Kickers?

Brendan Gibbons and brunettes Based upon the overtime field goal fest played between Alabama and LSU in November, Monday Night's BCS National Championship Game may very well come down to the ability's of Crimson Tide kicker's Jeremy Shelley and Cade Foster or LSU's Drew Alleman.

For advice regarding the best way to handle the unbelievable pressure, all these kickers have to do is follow the guidance offered by the man who kicked a game-winning field goal in the Mercedes- Benz Superdome just last week.

Brendan Gibbons is a sophomore place kicker for the University of Michigan, from West Palm Beach, Florida. He was considered a liability last season, when he made only one out of five field goal attempts.

In 2011, Gibbons improved to 10 for 14 during the regular season. 

Last Tuesday night, at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, Gibbons connected on a 37-yard field goal in overtime, giving the Wolverines a 23-20 victory over Virginia Tech. 

In the postgame interview room, Gibbons was asked what was going through his mind before his game-winning kick. 

He replied:  "Brunette girls. Every time we were struggling at kicking, coach (Brady Hoke) always tells me to think about girls on a beach or brunette girls. So, that's what we did and we made the kick." 

One wonders if Nick Saban and Les Miles are whispering the same bit of advice to their kickers?
