PODCAST: Ben Wisdorf talks ‘championship or bust’ for Pokes
LARAMIE -- Is it OK to ask if the 2021 season is "championship or bust" for the Wyoming Cowboys?
I say absolutely.
Our guest, former UW linebacker, Ben Wisdorf, had a much more elegant answer.
Wisdorf, you might recall, forced a fumble against Missouri near the goal line late in the first half. Alijah Halliburton scooped up the loose change and nearly scored. He did force a Kelly Bryant horse-collar tackle, which led to a field goal as time expired. The Cheyenne native also made headlines when his brother, Jordan Wisdorf, appeared on the Jumbotron during halftime of the UNLV game in 2019. He was stationed overseas but surprised his little brother with a salute to him and his teammates.
You might also remember a somber scene during senior day ceremonies that season. Wisdorf, in a wheelchair, was side by side with teammate and good friend Logan Wilson as they were announced to the crowd.
Wilson had the word "Wiz" written on the tape around his wrists.

The Bills could use a Brian Hill and Tashaun Gipson in their lineup too, huh? I hear they're available.
