Michael Dyer will play for Louisville this season

Published Add your comment

Michael Dyer is switching schools...again. The MVP of the 2010 BCS Championship is headed to Louisville and will be eligible to play this season. 

Dyer originally played for Auburn and broke Bo Jackson's record for most rushing yards by a freshman. 

During his sophomore year, he was suspended from the team for failing multiple drug tests. On January 6, 2012 he was released from his scholarship. He ranks tenth on the school's all time rushing list with 2,335 yards. 

After he was kicked off the team, Dyer transferred to Arkansas State, where his former offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn is the head coach. 

He was pulled over for speeding but the officer found a weapon and marijuana in his car. He was kicked of the team before he played a single down.

He then transferred to Arkansas Baptist College to earn an Associate Degree. He trained everyday to stay in shape and considered entering the NFL Supplemental Draft but chose against it, wanting to get rid of his bad name.

Now he is a Louisville Cardinal and has two years of eligibility remaining. The Cardinals will have Dyer pairing with Heisman candidate Teddy Bridgewater to form one of the best backfields in the country. 

If they both perform like they have in the past and with their extremely easy schedule, the Cardinals might be able to make a run for the championship.
