NFL lockout affecting former Spider Justin Rogers

On April 30, 2011, former University of Richmond cornerback Justin Rogers was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the seventh round of the NFL Draft. However, on March 11, 2011, the National Football League entered a lockout, disallowing communication between the organizations and the players. While numerous other former Spiders, such as Lawrence Sidbury (2009, 4th round, Falcons) and Tim Hightower (2008, 5th round, Cardinals), have heard their names called on NFL draft day, Rogers's situation is unique. Due to the lockout, Rogers has been forced to delay his transformation from a collegiate to professional player. "I haven't spoke to [the Bills' organization] since the draft cause I can't with the lockout still being on," Rogers said by phone.

The South will rise again

The South is football country. Sure, Penn State, Ohio State, Notre Dame and the University of Southern California are programs storied in success and tradition, but let's get real, y'all: The South wins the 2011 recruiting battle, especially (and I hate to say it as a Florida Gators fan) the REAL USC -- the University of South Carolina. Jadeveon Clowney, the No.
