Iowa City-Fans and local reporters are talking Heisman consideration for Iowa runningback Shonn Greene, but the University is low keying all the talk so far.

Should Iowa beat Illinois on Saturday and Greene would have another great day, the Iowa marketing department might get more involved in an active campaign to bring national attention to Greene.

Greene has come on the scene much as Brad Banks in 2002. Banks didn't get much consideration until after the Hawks flattened Michigan on a game on ESPN.

Iowa's next two games will be on ABC.
