According to sources, Michael Dyer has transferred to Arkansas State University in order to stay with his trusty Offensive Coach Gus Malzahn. This is bad news for Auburn University, whose highly recruited and touted tailback was most certainly on track to perform great feats at Auburn. Dyer had already topped Bo Jackson in his first two years at Auburn. Many have reported that Dyer has been suspended for unknown reasons.
According to an unnamed source close to the program, Michael Dyer has been suspended and released from his scholarship at Auburn University for failing multiple drug tests, more specifically, marijuana (this source refused to be named and therefore the validity of this claim cannot be verified). Michael Dyer is most famously known for his epic final-drive run against Oregon in the 2010 BCS National Championship game, in which he ran for 37 yards. It was thought that he may have been down when he was tackled by No. 11 Eddie Pleasant. Upon further analysis, it was determined that Dyer was not down and proceeded to run for a big gain.
Dyer was awarded the game MVP award and was a legitimate contender for the 2012 Heisman race. Apparently Gus Malzahn has no problem bringing in the pot smoking All-Star. Who can blame him? As many may know, marijuana is not addictive. Surely Dyer can stay off the grass long enough to pass a test. Dyer has certainly gotten closer to his home Little Rock, which is most assuring one of his goals in transferring to Arkansas State. Although the Auburn Tigers will wish Dyer the best at Arkansas State, he will definitely be missed by students, alumni, coaches and all Auburn fans. This move makes the 2012 SEC Running Back of the year Marcus Lattimore’s to lose.
