Adam Robinson Continues Run of Solid Iowa Running Backs


Great tailbacks and the Iowa Hawkeyes football program have been like young Caucasian girls sporting giant, over-sized sunglasses. Another one pops up all the time, and the trend shows no sign of stopping.

Shonn Greene is now with the New York Jets in the NFL, after winning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2008. Ladell Betts is having a nice pro career with the Washington Redskins and Albert Young played a couple years with the Minnesota Vikings.  And don’t forget Sedrick Shaw, Tavian Banks (my personal favorite), Ronnie Harmon, Fred Russell, and Damian Sims.

The latest in line is sophomore Adam Robinson, who ranks third in the Big Ten and 16th in the nation in rushing
yards per game. He had his 8th career 100 yard rushing game Saturday at Northwestern.
