AIRBHG has struck again, ladies and gentlemen. There are a few things you can count on happening every winter: Christmas, Hannukah, New Year's, bowl games and an
And Iowa running back Greg Garmon told 247sports.com that he's doing just that.
"I have been thinking about it for a while and I went in today and asked for my release," Garmon said. "They granted my release with no restrictions. Coach [Kirk] Ferentz said he would give me a recommendation if I needed it.
"This had nothing to do with my grades or getting into any trouble at all. I just didn't feel comfortable here anymore with the offense. It is a power offense and I am not a power type of a back. I'm more of a scat-back type guy. I can run, but I like to catch the ball out of the backfield and do different things."
By transferring from Iowa, Garmon also saves himself from suffering the inevitable ACL tear that seems to befall all Iowa running backs.
Where Garmon will transfer to is not known, but he finished his freshman season with 122 yards on 38 carries. He also caught eight passes for 57 yards.
