On Friday, Kirk Ferentz confirmed what most Hawkeye fans already suspected… Brandon Wegher hasn’t practiced all week because of undiclosed personal reasons. Ferentz volunteered the information during an interview on ESPN Radio’s Scott Van Pelt show. Ferentz will undoubtedly be asked about Wegher on Saturday, following Iowa’s open practice at Kinnick Stadium, but I’ll be highly surprised if he offers much more information than he did on Friday.
Kurt Warner continues to dabble in broadcasting. The Iowa native and two-time NFL MVP will be the color commentator for the NFL Network’s broadcast of the Arena Bowl. With a little work, Warner could easily end up in a network booth calling NFL games. It just depends on if Warner wants to make that kind of commitment.
