    Sounds like Hadley's taken over the starting BC spot with Eason at FC (or vice versa...can't remember which). It also sounds like we have a lot of good athletes (see Joe Sampson, Jordan Johnson, Robbie Buckner, etc) who are all very capable, but that the coaches are hoping the depth chart at the position will settle itself in the next week or so.

    Either way, we've got what sounds like the most depth at each position that we've ever had at BYU.

    Things are looking good.

    Go Cougars!

    With Sorenson stepping in at the kat safety position along with Hague or Uale playing the other safety position, I feel pretty good about BYU's safetys. Cornerback is the only real question mark I have, I assume that Buckner and Eason are probably the leading canididates to start but it will be interesting to see how well they do and if anyone else emerges at the position.

    Thanks Bronco, isn't that so sweet that Sorensen like to tackle. Wow, isn't that what you do on defense? Good heavens.....Bronco reminds me of Willard Romney.......goof ball.

    I love the depth at all these positions. The fact that we have several solid guys throughout the defense will really help during the first two games in the heat and humidity.

    Andrew Rich is one of my favorite BYU football players of all time. If Bronco sees some of those same qualities in Sorenson then I cant wait to see him in action!

    Its too bad about Colby Jorgenson. I expected him to be red-shirted this year, but I held out some hopes that he could come in and make an impact as a true freshman. He will red-shirt for sure now, and then probably go on a mission and we wont see him again until 2014.

    Things seem to be shaping up. I like the depth. I hope all of the new guys can figure things out quickly. I always worry about RM's legs but being home since December has to help.

    Sorensen is going to be an anchor on defense. He may not be Rich in his first year playing the position, but if he's ahead of Jray on the depth chart, he must be pretty good. I fully expected Jray to be the starter going into Spring practice.

    But I think there will be plenty of opportunities for the #2's to play, especially on defense. Early on, Bronco is going to keep fresh legs in the game to combat the exhaustion of high heat and humidity in Mississippi and Texas. And later in the season, the 2s and 3s will get plenty of playing time against weaker opponents.
