Even your new running backs coach is powerless to save you, Iowa.
On the same day that Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz announced the addition of Chris White to oversee the team’s backfield, it was also confirmed that fullback Brad Rogers would hang up the cleats because of ongoing injury problems.
Rogers, who had one year of eligibility left, had played in 27 games over his career with the Hawkeyes. His final rushing stats include 16 carries for 87 yards.
Additionally, linebacker Jim Poggie has ended his career because of injuries. Poggie did not play the past two seasons, but was one of 13 Iowa players to be hospitalized with rhabdomyolysis two years ago.
