    Not the best outcome so far here for BW. At minimum he should try to just get back to a school and see if he can earn a scholarship. Preferably close to home. A school such as N. Iowa or Iowa St, etc. Besides football opportunities, he needs to at least finish his degree and do something positive with his life.
    Something obviously went sour between BW and the Iowa coaches.

    Although this is not the end of the world for BW. Maybe he would be wise and see if he can patch things up with the young lady and settle down with her and see if they can make it work.
    There is no confirmed fact that any 2nd girl got pregnant. If that was indeed the case though, this really complicates things big time.

    I can understand some of you guys berating BW for his choices, but imho the whole purpose of sites such as Caste is to support our athletes and young men and women in their greatest time of need. It's easy to love and support folks when they are on top. It's lonely for people when they screw up. Have some compassion and many young people make poor choices.
    Yes, this is not exactly getting drunk at a party and getting into a fight or something. It's much more life altering for BW.
    Having said that, it's not a bad thing and will (hopefully) make BW grow up faster and focus his life.
    Really, something is truly off with 'white people' when it comes to having children, especially when young.
    You notice this streak of embarrassment or that they are not happy at beautiful new babies.
    in the grand scheme, this is a wonderful thing. BW and the Mom should be thrilled.
    You think those millions of Mexicans would be upset and shamed at a new born? LOL, no way, that's a celebration to them. That is what they so.

    Wait until this rumor of a 2nd girl getting pregnant and who it may be before passing total judgment on BW.
    BW needs to get his a$$ back to a school and focus his life.
    Maybe he should marry the girl and raise a family together.

    Good luck to BW and let us hope none of you ever make a poor choice in life.

    Thinking like that means we should celebrate if he got another girl pregnant. That's two!! And by a white running back no less. C'mon Brandon knock a few more up!!!

    I am disappointed in Brandon Wegher because he is/was a rare bird, a legit big program White RB. We need him out there on the field, not throwing it all away. There are too few of them out there for White youth to see. We need tons more White RBs in the FBS, not one less. Yeah, everybody makes mistakes. I'm not trying to hold him up to some unrealistic standard of behavior. I'm glad he's going to take responsibility for his actions. That is what he should do. It just pains me to see someone who is in his position do something like that. It will make destroying the caste system that much more difficult without him slashing around and through black defenders.

    Brandon did make some bad decisions, but once a child is created there's no sense in going in the past and bashing the decision. All you can do is make the right choices from this point forward. He's still young and hopefully he finds his breakthrough moment and gets everything back on track. Even if it is playing a smaller school and putting the pieces back together, I will still support him in that.

    There is a lot to be said about how everyone is there when things are going great but it shows true character to stand behind someone when things aren't so hot. Reminds me of the Tracy Lawrence:

    "Everybody wants to slap your back
    wants to shake your hand
    when you're up on top of that mountain
    But let one of those rocks give way then you slide back down look up
    and see who's around then

    This ain't where the road comes to an end
    This ain't where the bandwagon stops
    This is just one of those times when
    A lot of folks jump off"

    Old thread but ill post my opinion anyway. Wegher transfered from iowa because he was not given a fair shot to start, he was going start the season #3 RB and He actually wanted to play some safety but the coaches wouldnt let him. <div></div><div>He left OU because he would have to sit out another year even tho he didnt play in 2010 which was bs. The whole him getting Adam Robinsons sister pregnat is bstoo ARob doesnt have a sister</div>

    He would have had to sit out this year as well at oklahoma.<div></div><div></div>I bet he ends up at a FCS school like UNI or south dakota state. I've heard he wanted to go to uni instead of oklahoma but one thing or another didnt work out.

    Why does he have to sit out yet last year Jeremiah Masoli didn't have to sit out when he tranfered to Mississippi.

    all NCAA Division I players that transfer to another Division I school must sit out one year, per NCAA guidelines. the lone caveat to this rule was recently introduced (off the top of my head, i think it was put into place two years ago), and it allows players who have graduated (academically) to transfer to another school for graduate school if A) they still have one year of athletic eligibility remaining, and B) the new school has a Master's program that their previous school did not that they wish to enroll in. that's why Masoli could transfer without penalty and Wegher couldn't.

    hope this helps. [​IMG]

    According to a post on an Iowa State fan forum, Wegher has enrolled at a JUCO for the fall, Iowa Western Community College.
    I can find no evidence of this on their website. Although JUCOs don't generally make media announcements for transfer students.

    What a shame...what a waste of talent. Eighteen months ago he was running all over Georgia Tech, the ACC champions, in the Orange Bowl on national TV....I think he had 160 yards. I had such high hopes for him...and white RBs in general with Toby almost winning the Heisman that year and the emergence of Peyton in the NFL. Just a darn shame.

    He's academically ineligible


    He's out for the year. He might as well transfer back to a major being that he's gonna sit out another year anyway.

    More drinking under age nonsense. If you can go to Asia and come back in a body bag you should be able to drink alcohol at the same age. Of course this could be a sign of a bigger issue here.

    So far in his first 3 games..Wegher has 586 yards rushing on 57 carries(Over 10 yard avg.!) & 8 TD's( 3 TD's over 45 yds)....+ 5 receptions for 38 yards & a TD

    Who knows...just maybe he can get a shot in the NFL...Those are video game like numbers he's putting up....Don Beebe & Danny Woodhead went to Chadron State & Jeff Query Millikin (DIII schools) and got their opportunities.

    NAIA Powerhouse Morningside has obliterated it's opponents by a combined score of 211-35

    If he was black its safe to say he would DEFINITELY be drafted. Since hes white who knows? IF hes drafted it will be bu=y a team who already has a good RB.

    Wegher has been a healthy scratch for every Carolina game this year. Seems very unlikely now that he will ever get playing time in the NFL. What a shame as he could probably be beastly, but it's the same old same old White RBs have been facing for well over 30 years now.

    I didn't even realize he was on the team! here's hoping for someone to make room so he can step up.

    Brandon Wegher showed tremendous burst as a playmaker in the NFL Pre-season...Coach Rivera had said he has a lot of good football ahead of him..hmmm..had hoped he'd at least be a change-of-pace back his rookie season for Jonathan Stewart. Wegher can be a legit Full-time Feature Back in a fair world.... he is already 25....the next two seasons will prove to be crucial for him...he's better than just Special teams duty...but right Don; nearly 30 years of this crap it is hard to be optimistic...

    5th Round rookie Cameron Artis-Payne is certainly nothing special ...yet was allowed to get 12 carries this season for a whopping 31 yards...

    Since white media is not allowed to talk about ithe elephant-n-the room...get George Wrighster, Chris Carter, Irvin, Wilbon , etc....to continue with this! All of the recent McCaffrey attention("shattering stereotypes") opened a can of worms i'm sure lame-stream media will be ordered to shut down ASAP...
