BYU's kicker (Sorensen) blew out multiple discs in his back. It is sad. The kid used to nail 65 yarders in high school. He's the best prep kicker I've ever seen by far, and I'm not exaggerating. He needs career ending surgery, but there's nothing they can do now. They couldn't add anybody to the roster and thought he'd heal enough by now after the long break, but rumor is that he's in so much pain he can barely stand. I'm surprised the announcers haven't talked about it. Apparently he's risking paralysis by even playing. The punter tried to kick for a while, but he can't hit an extra point either (although he's ok on kickoffs) so they're stuck with Sorensen. Poor kid, he's an awesome guy. My cousin interviewed him quite a bit as he was one of the top recruited kickers in the country and chose BYU because he's local and they've needed a good kicker. He came in and was lights out, and then his back just went (sort of like us ivotuk) and it has ruined his career. He's gutsy though to try to play it out because he feels he owes it to honor his scholly.
R.I.P. Dad. I miss you. You will never be forgotten
