    Chris, this reminds me of my fan club for Adam Ciborowski many years ago.  Tell me what the dues are  and what are the benefits.  Do I get an autographed picture??  Or a chance to meet him after the game?  As Grumpy said, what about meetings?

    By the way, last year during the games Chris kept calling Jack "Bambi".  Who else on here is old enough to remember Lance Alworth?

    My recollection, from when I lived in Minnesota, is that -sen is Danish, -son is Norwegian. -sson is Swedish.

    Same as for “Texans for Raudabaugh.”

    -sen is Danish or Norwegian. -son is Swedish or English. -sson is Swedish or Icelandic. -sohn is German. All of the countries except for Iceland have moved to inherited last names. Iceland is the only one that still uses the patronymic naming system where your last name is literally (your father's name)sson or (your father's name)sdottir.

    Sorenson's story is great. He came in with a class full of receivers. Stori Emerson, DeAndre Huff, KJ Hancock, and Tyler Fleetwood. Sorenson was the lowest rated because he had to play quarterback his senior season. He's really picked up. He's fast, runs great routes, and doesn't drop much. I thought losing Murphy would be a huge blow, but Sorenson might be just as good with better size.

    There was another receiver who played QB senior year... name of Ben...so, could Sorenson be backup #4?

    He actually played QB his first year at Miami and then moved over to receiver. I say play, he never saw action, I think it was more of they needed an extra body at the position.

    Sure you aren't thinking about Dom? Sorenson was a WR from the start and even Chuck made jokes about him not being a true QB on signing day.

    I am pretty sure Sorenson was the backup qb when Miami played at Akron three years ago. Noah (sp?) had to start and i think Sorenson (who was redshirting) was the backup that day.

    I'm pretty sure he's thinking about the 2016 season when we got down to one healthy scholarship QB at one point and Sorenson was the emergency QB on the depth chart even though he was still listed as a WR on the roster. He was also part of the greatest signal calling duo in college football history that season, so he's a real jack of all trades.

    We went 6-1 and set an NCAA record while he was backup. Coincidence? I think not.
