and the tire fire at Iowa continues....Ferentz should have gotten out when the gettin out was good.
This for sure played a role in Garmon coming to Iowa. . . He had Ferentz in his ear about 2 weeks ago letting him know about this.
AIRBHG is a tremendous bastard.
Huge, huge loss
Any reason for this? Wasn't he pretty good?
He was suspended for the bowl game, so I'm guessing it has something to do with that.
RB: YOU STAY UN-SUSPENDED AND UN-INJURED GREG GARMON ARGGGHHHH!!!!
Someone should make them a banner.
Bad idea, that banner would have a decade or more of players claimed by AIRBHG
I have two functional ACLs and four years of eligibility left. Let's make this thing happen.
I would strongly discourage this course of action.
College just wasn't your thing at the time?
Wow.....I'm just glad the AMDBHG isn't as strong his older brother
Alot of high character coaches sure do miss when selecting high character players. Oh wait, I was thinking about St. Tress and Marky D not Kirk.
Kirk better GTFO before anymore peeks behind his curtain.
Maybe Michael Cox can take advantage of the Russell Wilson/Dayne Crist Rule and go play for the Hawkeyes.
That only works if he has graduated and still has eligibility left.
He'll have had four years at Michigan and one year of eligibility remaining, I struggle to see the roadblocks, beyond the whole no scholarship when transferring in the Big Ten thing.
I shudder to think what graduate majors Iowa offers that Michigan doesn't.
Master's of Engineering in Corn Maze Design?
Ph.D. in Drinking on a Bus?
Not jumping all over you, but the U of I does have some top notch graduate programs. Not saying they're "better" than Michigans, but we do more than make amazing corn mazes!
They have a top-notch ophthamology dept.
It isn't about quality of program, but the existence of said programs, and Michigan offers a shit-ton of grad programs.
Haha, oh the typical Iowa jokes are too fresh.
I've heard he was suspended for something he and Kirk Ferentz felt was not a suspendable offense. Kirk wasn't happy and obviously Coker wasn't happy. What he did has yet to come out. A lot of speculation and most of it says he violated the UNIVERSITY code of conduct, not the teams so TTFWIW.
Hey now, dont poke fun at Iowa's graduate studies...
...Physics in Tractor Pulling is one serious program.
they might have Corn Maze Design, but WE'RE the only place that has Corn MAIZE Design.
Coker: Can we haz him?
Per the Miami Herald, he asked to be released. I wonder if the suspension and the specifics therein prompted the "resignation", if you will. Right now, I think this leaves Iowa with Canzeri and possibly the infinite eligibility of Tacopants at RB.
well now we can't get run over by Iowa like we were in this years game
Wow, this is huge. Granted, I still think Vandenberg is underrated, but now that Coker is gone, and McNutt may very well declare, Iowa's could be in for a long season next year.
Then again, Ferentz has shown he's able to bring in quality talent (Stanzi, Clayborn, Coker, McNutt, etc.), so who knows who will emerge on Iowa's depth chart now.
McNutt is gone anyway, he's a senior.
A friend of mine is an athlete at Iowa and he said Coker was suspended because he was caught cheating on a final.
If you aren't cheating, you aren't trying hard enough
But according to TSIO everyones cheating. Why would he get suspended?
How people get in trouble at Iowa such that they get suspended is beyond me. Not to be a jerk, but what IS there in Iowa that allows you to do anything that offensive?
Must beat Iowa...must beat Iowa...
Too bad. He was a good running back, on his way to following in footsteps of Shonn Green; not as good, but Marcus has Sunday potential. Hopefully he lands on his feet somewhere else. But cheating is cheating, so in that regard, he needs to make some changes and better himself as to not stoop to the lows of cheating (getting caught anyway!).
All in all, as aleady stated numerous times, glad Michigan doesn't have to (try and) contain him again next year up in AA.
hasn't had a running back who started a single game finish out his four years with the school since Albert Young in 2007. Not that I feel bad for them having Shonn Greene jump ship early, but this run they're on is beyond ridiculous.
The reasoning behing his departure may have something to do with an "alleged" sexual assault back in October. No charges are being pressed from what I saw. No proof that this is why he is leaving, but is evidence to suggest.
