Michael Dyer heading to Louisville?

Former Auburn Tigers running back Michael Dyer was once a promising young ball carrier that was part of a national championship winning team, but after a string of off field incidents his college football career was uncertain.

Dyer was initially booted from Auburn after using synthetic marijuana. He has said recently that he has since stopped using the synthetic drug, and he no longer owns his registered gun, which was used during a 2011 robbery. He seems to be taking a step in the right direction.

He also looks like he could be getting a shot.

After looking to return to a FBS program, rumors are surfacing that Dyer could be joining the Louisville Cardinals for the coming season.

From T.J. Walker of

If a talent like Dyer could join the Louisville backfield to compliment Teddy Bridgewater, the Cardinals could be one their way to taking advantage of a weak schedule and becoming a serious threat to be a player in the national championship race.

We should learn more about Dyer’s future in the coming weeks.

    These coaches say they are looking for solid young men who are students first and athletes second but ACTIONS speak louder than WORDS. This guy has had 2 or 3 opportunites already and has dwindled them both away with continued off the field problems. It’s a tragedy if a scholarship goes to waste with Dyer when another RB with solid character hoping for that scholarship out of high school is passed over yet again. These programs want nothing other than wins and thats it. I mean look at all the arrests in the NCAA and they continue to get free rides. Its getting ridiculous and embarassing for me to even watch anymore.
