Adam Robinson will seek a transfer from Iowa

After several pump fakes that led many to believe there was a chance for return, Iowa running back Adam Robinson will officially seek a transfer.

"All I can say now is that he's exploring his options," Robinson's mother told the Des Moines Register. "We don't know where he will be enrolling, but he will be someplace, hopefully in time for summer school."

Robinson led the Hawkeyes in rushing last season with 941 yards and 10 touchdowns. Robinson was suspended indefinitely after the regular season finale, then was arrested for marijuana possession on the eve of Iowa's Insight Bowl victory over Missouri. Like many coaches, Kirk Ferentz has been on the booster club trail since the end of spring practice. Last month Ferentz did not rule out the possibility of Robinson returning, as long as he got his academics in order. According to the Robinson family, they have already moved on.

"Hopefully this gets done soon," Sally Robinson said. "Summer school is approaching. We're talking to schools, seeing which one would be a good fit."

If those schools are Division I colleges, Robinson will have to sit out the 2011 season and then return to the field with one year of eligibility in 2012. His only hope to play this fall is to transfer down a division or get a medical waiver from the NCAA. Robinson's mother would not say who the family has been contacting.

For Ferentz and Iowa, moving on had already begun. Sophomore running back Marcus Coker played exceptionally in Robinson's stead last season, capping the year off with a 219 yard, two touchdown performance in the Insight Bowl victory. With James Vandengberg stepping into the starting quarterback role, Coker will be expected to carry some of the load early while the 6-3, 212 pound junior gets comfortable under center.

How ironic...a Georgia fan calling a team overrated and a major disappointment.

Seek the truth, Iowa gave you the platform to be a great running back, the school should have also taught you the concept of TEAM! YO!

He probably would have been beat out as the starter anyway...I predict he'll end up at Oklahoma State. They love bringing in weed-smoking troublemakers who can't add and subtract.

He'll probably go to a JUCO for a year, come back to play D-1 at Auburn, win the Heisman, and cash in on draft day.  Sound familiar?
