    Not badly written, either.

    When Gettysburg reinserted Weissman into Saturday's game in the final minute for his first real playing time since suffering a life-threatening stroke in March 2009, Nugent instructed his team to foul Weissman intentionally with 17 seconds to go. It was counterintuitive to Nugent to give away free points, yet he knew Weissman's story and felt it was the proper gesture with so little time remaining and his team trailing by 16.
    "We were just rewarding a young man who has worked his tail off to just get back and do what he's doing now," Nugent said. "I don't know that you deserve anything in life, but this was something I felt he earned."
