Brink saw career cut short

"Exit Interview" is a concept started at WolverineNation last year where we chat with players leaving Michigan about their experiences with the Wolverines and in some cases what's next.

Nathan Brink's world went dark. Literally.

The junior defensive tackle lay on the turf inside Schembechler Hall on the morning of Friday, Sept. 28. The Wolverines were practicing because they didn't play the next day, with a Saturday off before the Big Ten season began. Brink had been involved in a drill in practice, and he took what he says was a reasonably nondescript blow to the head.
