Greene makes his decision known

Per ESPN's Outback Bowl recap.

After leading Iowa over South Carolina 31-10 Thursday in the Outback Bowl, the Big Ten's most valuable player said he'll skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

"I don't think there's really a lot more I can do here," Greene said. "People talk about the Heisman, but I think that's a lot of politics. I don't like getting caught up in all of that, so I just figure I'll try my chances."

It's been a great ride, and we all saw it coming, and now it's official.  I really hope he lands somewhere that will allow him to use his talents properly, with the NFL becoming a platoon RB league, maybe his "lack of top end speed" that Todd McShay is worried about will be less of a factor than initially assumed. 

It seems to me that a zone running team is where he needs to go, as it is his vision and cut back skills that have resulted in his largest runs.  However, with Shanahan out at Denver, I have no idea which team could be the best fit for him.

The Jewel Hampton era at Iowa has officially begun.

 

EDIT: One last image of Greene clearly enjoying his final game as a Hawkeye.  Photos found in the Des Moines Register's Outback photo gallery.
