Ask a Question: James Rogers
While at Michigan, James Rogers switched back and forth between the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, acclimated himself to a new head coach and two new defensive coordinators, and ended his career as a starting cornerback. His is one of the more interesting journeys for a Michigan player in recent memory. I'll be talking with James later in the week, so if you have a question for him, leave it below and I'll try to address it in the interview.

do you have a favorite memory at Michigan?ReplyDelete
what crossed your mind while watching the sugar bowl, specially Jr's speach when he received the MVP award?ReplyDelete
Does a particular play stick out that you made, or someone else made?ReplyDelete
First, THANKS from a grateful Michigan fan, for all of the hard work you put in under difficult circumstances. I won't soon forget the way that you stepped up to do whatever was necessary for the team.ReplyDelete
Second, having been there as an upperclassman, what was your reaction to what was going on with the Free Press' reporting on practice time violations? Did you read John U. Bacon's book? Does the book seem to you like a fair account of what was going on? Apart from the immediate hurt inflicted on Stokes and Hawthorne and their families, we have gotten very little comment from players. Bloggers, reporters, commentators, the NCAA, the Michigan Administration, even some coaches have offered comments. But we've seen very few comments from players. Which is remarkable, since the early sanctimonious claim of the Free Press was that they were all about reporting on rules that were enacted 'to protect student athletes.'
I don't know what James Rogers might say, but I agree with his merit as an interesting interview subject.
James, thanks for your contribution to the program! What's it like to go through an NFL training camp?ReplyDelete
What are you up to now?ReplyDelete
Ask him if he knows that him and Shane Morris played for the same CYO coach. That coach just left St. Anne's in Warren, Michigan and was replaced by Jessie Johnson.ReplyDelete
You played very well your senior year. Are you bitter you weren't given a chance to start beforehand?ReplyDelete
