Rogers Tribute

Our department's long-time leader Langston Rogers stepped down as of Friday, and we had quite a celebration here Saturday in the southzone to honor him. A couple hundred friends, family, media and staff -- current and former -- were on hand, most notably Coach Billy Brewer, Coach Boo Ferriss, SEC Associate Commissioner Charles Bloom, former Chancellor Robert Khayat and current Chancellor Dan Jones to name a few. The media has given Langston its sendoff, and here are a few of the tributes.
