Scout is reporting that Justin Roper told his teammates Thursday after workouts that he had asked for his release and will look to transfer from Oregon. His father Brad confirmed the news on Friday. People know how much of a Roper homer I was but this is probably the best move if he wants to play somewhere. With Masoli entrenched as the starter, Nate Costa coming back and Darren Thomas in the mix as well, Roper always seemed like the odd guy out. All that being said, this is a bitter pill for me to swallow and leaves me asking some questions about our backup quarterback situation.
