AIRBHG carves another notch in its Iowa bedpost

Northern Iowa Iowa Football AP

In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, and following a brief sabbatical, the Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God has decided to claim yet another victim.

According to multiple media outlets, running back Greg Garmon has decided to take his leave of Iowa and transfer out of the football program.  Garmon told the Cedar Rapids Gazette that “it wasn’t clicking for him at Iowa” as the reason behind his decision.

While the school has yet to officially confirm Garmon’s departure, he is the 37,418th Hawkeye running back in the past three years to leave the program… or be dismissed by the program… or land an arrest… or suffer a torn ACL.. or just generally feel AIRBHG’s velvety-smooth touch.

As a true freshman in 2012, Garmon finished third on the team in rushing with 122 yards.  He also caught eight passes for 57 yards, and was credited with one pot possession charge in June.

On paper, it’s rather significant loss as Garmon was a four-star member of Iowa’s 2012 recruiting class.  “[L]ooking everywhere” was the Pennsylvania native’s response to the Gazette‘s question of where he might be headed to continue his collegiate playing career.

    I can always tell when John Taylor writes an article. It always has subtle wit to it.

    I think Kirk Ferentz will realise he should have taken the Bears, Browns or Jacksonville job, because his players have absolutely 0 discipline and he cannot keep players in his program.

    two years removed from a bcs bowl, and his team went 4-8 and totally non competetive in some of those games……I think he is coaching for his job in 2013

    37,418?? This is one of those things you know is bad but you don’t realize how bad until it’s written down….that’s stunning.
