Quizz is done with quizzes

Today is just not a good day to be an Oregon State fan.  Not only do you have to watch your hated rival play for a national championship tonight, but now you're getting the news that one of the best players on your team won't be coming back to Corvallis next season.  Running back Jacquizz Rodgers will be announcing his decision to forego his senior season at Oregon State and enter the NFL Draft.

The school will announce Rodgers' decision this afternoon in a teleconference at 2pm PST.

If there's any good news for the Beavers, though, it's that at least James Rodgers will be back next season.  Even if he doesn't have his brother around with him.

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 1,184 yards and 11 touchdowns this season.  All told, in his three-year career with the Beavers, Rodgers tallied 4,933 yards rushing and receiving, with 51 touchdowns.  That, my friends, is a lot of production to replace.

This makes no sense at all.  Why would Jacquizz declare and his brother James, elect to stay?  Jmes suffered a pretty severe knee injury last season, and received an extra season for the medical red shirt.  By Quizz leaving, Oregon State takes a major hit offensively.  I guess money is thicker than blood.

I think the one thing that is overlooked with Jacquizz declaring for the NFL draft is his workload while he has been at OSU.  One of the major factors in drafting a running back high in the draft is the question of a combination of his size, durability and accumulated "workload." Despite proving himself year after year since helping to beat USC his freshman year, it is not hard to see that a running back with a considerable workload in his college carreer can be a serious detriment to his professional output. With his smaller than average size, I can completely see that somewhere along the line Rodgers may have been told information from a scouting service that if he would return to school and suffer any time of major or nagging injury, he could completely slip out of the top 4 rounds.  I think Quizz has had an amazing college carreer and has done more than just prove himself viable to run any offense playbook dumped in his lap.  Although suprising, this is the right choice for Quizz.  A collegiate running back with aspirations for the NFL wants to have the greatest impact in the shortest amount of eligibility time alotted to him before he can declare.  Quizz has done exactly this.  I wish him good luck.

This is a major shocker.  After his brother James is granted an extra year of eligibility due to injury Quiz decides to leave the program?  Quiz is major undersized for the NFL and will not be drafted high.  He is at best a 3rd down back in the NFL due to his size and can be a very solid third down back too as he has excellent speed and is tough but the pounding he would take from NFL players every down would put him back at Oregon State to finish his classes within a couple of years.

Everyone has been saying that the Rodgers brothers were a package deal. Both were either staying in college or leaving for the NFL. Looks like the sports experts are wrong again. I have been a big fan of Oregon State for quite some time. I'm hoping that Auburn will demolish Oregon and show the whole world just how over rated the Oregon Ducks are. Has anyone forgotten that they barely won against an awful Cal team.

There is just no way to sugar coat this news. I have heard there is some way he can un-declare after the declaration deadline (see: ). I am not sure what that means but I will not be holding out inner hopes.

Very sorry to see Quiz move on but I wish him the best going forward. He had an amazing career at OS. Most impressive: only once did he lose the football in three years.
