Interesting read.

"But his time in the national spotlight was short-lived. Off the field issues forced Wegher to leave the program after just one season.

"I lost everything I worked my entire life for," Wegher explained. "I was in a different place mentally."

Over the next couple of years, Brandon struggled to find a home, spending short stints at Oklahoma and Iowa Western without ever playing a down, but while continuing to grow off the field.

"My son was only a couple of months at the time, but my fiance had to endure the struggles I was going through. And I mean, I really put that on her. That's one of my biggest regrets," Wegher said.

In 2013, after three years away from football, Wegher got a shot with NAIA powerhouse Morningside, where things began to fall into place on and off the field."

Smith never struck me as the articulate one

 

I would rather listen to someone who can throw out one liners like "ice up son" than someone who can articulate well - at least when it comes to football.


In Topic: We gave up, they never did

let's be honest, the only reason we even get to have this conversation is because the second place team in the NFCS couldn't muster a better record than 7-8-1. the only reason we're counting these hardships as memorable bumps in the road instead of kicks while we're down is because this division was historically pathetic.

 

but nobody could help that, and whether or not the team deserved our support before is irrelevant. they deserve it now. i can't fuging wait for saturday.

So your saying they didn't deserve your support because they weren't winning?

Or the second to third.  Or third to fourth.  And this wasn't the first game he's bobbled punts, it was just the first time (that I recall) that he actually lost it.
 

 

He didn't "bobble" it. It hit the ground and bounced towards him. And as you have admitted, it's the first time he's lost a punt. Give it a break.

Man, what on Earth was Bersin thinking? I fully believe the lights of the NFL are too big for him. No doubt I'll be nervous every time Seattle punts this week. 

 

Not me. It was one time in a playoff game in bad weather. Lesson learned.
