Brandon Wegher leaving Iowa for good

Last season Brandon Wegher set an Iowa record for freshman by rushing for 8 touchdowns as the Hawkeyes finished their season 11-2 with an Orange Bowl victory over Georgia Tech.  This season Wegher was supposed to be a big part of Iowa's offense once again, but before the season started he left the team due to personal reasons.

Personal reasons that were never publicized, but received plenty of speculation.  There were also a lot of questions about whether or not Wegher would be returning to the Iowa program, and that is one question that can be answered. 

He won't be.  

Wegher has been granted a full release from his scholarship at Iowa with the lone stipulation being that he cannot transfer to a Big Ten school as a scholarship athlete in the 2011 season.

The news was confirmed by associate athletic director Fred Mims on Friday night.

Wegher rushed for 641 yards to go along with those eight touchdowns in 2009, and also rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Orange Bowl win over Georgia Tech.

hey auburn, congrats on your cheating qb (let's see, he was a thief who was kicked out of florida. hahahahaha!!!!), can't wait to see him fail in the pros just like Ja-Marcus (great name if you're a moron, oh wait, he is!) and then i can't wait to see your team fail under chizim and watch every bandwagon, fairweather fan from auburn cry about him and your losing team. even the yankees can't BUY continued success, so get used to your one cheating year and then go back into your hole...

Another classless Auburn fan...shocking.  Instead of rooting for your team, you insult others.

Maybe Wegher will transfer to Auburn so he fill Dyer's Gatorade cup when he's thirsty; that's all Iowa RBs are good for, filling the Igloos.
