Rogers gets clarity on quest for sixth year
Rogers, who started at quarterback in the first two games last season, suffered a season-ending spinal fracture in the fourth game against Portland State.
Late in the season, Rogers said he planned to appeal to the NCAA for another year of eligibility. Rogers redshirted at WSU for non-injury reasons as a freshman in 2004, and the NCAA generally grants a sixth year of eligibility only for players who saw extremely limited or no action during two seasons due to injury.
Wulff said Rogers eventually decided he had no hope of winning his appeal. Wulff said Rogers, who starred at Kamiak High School but never started in college until last season, hopes to play professionally.
The Cougars return both other quarterbacks who started last year -- senior Kevin Lopina and sophomore Marshall Lobbestael. Sophomore J.T. Levenseller also could figure in the mix. Wulff said he expects to redshirt California prep star Jeff Tuel, the only scholarship quarterback recruited by WSU this year.
Last Friday, at the "Night with Cougar Football" dinner in downtown Seattle, Wulff told CF.C that Lobbestael is recovering nicely from the knee injury that ended his season on Oct. 11 at Oregon State. Lobbestael will partake in only limited fashion in spring workouts, which commence March 25, but is expected to be 100 percent when fall camps opens in August.
