The spongy feeling may be your ABS system. The wheel speed sensors may have mud contaminating the works.

yep sounds to me like you got mud stuck all up in the sensors and brakes take a powerwasher to it and give it a good cleaning. for best possible clean jack the car up and remove the wheel you are cleaning so you can be insured you got all the grit out.
