MSU kickers - an appreciation

Has any school had better luck with its kickers than MSU? Whether they're foreign (Nielsen, Andersen), domestic (Swenson, Rayner, Edinger), or something in between (Mojsiejenko), Spartan kickers always give us a leg up. The posters on Joe Rexrode's LSJ blog unearthed this gem about State's 19-12 victory over Ohio State in 1972:

In Daugherty's last great victory, a colorful walk-on with shoulder-length hair walked off with the headlines. Dirk Kryt, who'd just been promoted from the junior varsity and didn't even have his name in the program, set a Big Ten record with four field goals and an extra-point in the first half, During Daugherty's post-game interview, Kryt strolled by, smoking a cigarette, and said in a heavy Dutch accent, "Coach, I'm going to go out tonight, celebrate with a girl and have a few beers. Wanna come along?" When the media launched a barrage of questions about the team's training rules, Daugherty did what he always did best - deflect and disarm with a wink and a quip. "We have a new rule," Daugherty said. "Anyone who kicks four field goals in a game is allowed to do most anything he likes."
