Zach Arnett had no shortage of good things to say about his quarterback. Arnett spoke at SEC Media Days about Will Rogers on Tuesday.

Rogers has been at Mississippi State since 2020 and has a lot of experience under his belt. Rogers played in all 13 games for the Bulldogs last season with 3,974 yards passing and 35 touchdowns.

Arnett didn’t wait too long to confirm Rogers as the starting QB for the 2023 season. The Mississippi State HC seems very happy to have Rogers around.

“Make no mistake about it, Will Rogers is our starter, and his resume speaks for itself, but Mike, there’s a lot of things Mike can do and wrinkles that we can add in the game plan that could make — allow us to be really dynamic on offense, and there are situations within a game, certain areas of the field down and distances where he can create some opportunities for explosive plays for you on offense.
We had a need at the quarterback position. We lost a couple kids to the transfer portal. They decided that a better location would be a better fit for them, and we were able to go out and get a, like you said, a proven guy who’s got SEC experience, starts under his belt, who’s won games in this conference.”

If Rogers can continue putting up similar numbers to his previous seasons, the Bulldog offense should be fun to watch once again.
