TTB Andrew recently interviewed former Michigan wide receiver/cornerback James Rogers. He talks about his current football endeavors, switching positions, and how it felt during the first coaching change back in 2007.
An Interview with James Rogers
Pretty standard fare, nothing earth-shattering. Best of luck to him in the Arena League.
I thought it was pretty earth-shattering that he hasn't read "Three and Out."
Not really. But if someone were going to write a book about the specific years in which I was at a football program, I would definitely read it as soon as possible. I know a lot of things are written about Michigan football and players can't necessarily take it all in, but it just seems like that book would be one thing that would be consumed by almost everyone who played for Rodriguez in those three years.
I like reading about some of the more unheralded "glue" type players. Maybe you've already tried this Magnus, but would you have any interest in looking up some of the kids who transferred out? Would love to hear what someone like Sam McGuffie has to say.
Personally, I think current college players should be off limits. I don't want to distract them from their athletic endeavors with their current teams. They probably have team rules about conducting interviews, anyway, so I doubt a request to McGuffie would be fruitful. But yes, I would eventually be interested in hearing from guys like him.
Also, just so nobody gets the wrong idea, TTB Andrew does most of the legwork for these interviews and has done a great job with them.
It seems like James Rodgers is a very smart and eloquent guy. Best of luck to him.
He was quite guarded in his comments about RR. Wonder what he would have said with a little truth serum.
If you want to drug him and transcribe what he says, I'll post the results.
