Announcement: I’m going to start not only linking my college football articles to Crystal Ball Run, but only posting an excerpt here and sending you to Crystal Ball Run to read the rest of it, like Down Goes Brown does with Grantland. CBR actually pays me so they deserve the real article. But back to the story.
Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer will finally get that second chance he deserved. Dyer plans to enroll at Louisville, according to USA Today Sports. Dyer’s mentor, Arkansas Baptist College President Fitz Hill, told USA Today Sports that Dyer has accepted a scholarship with the Cardinals and will begin classes next week. The Louisville Courier-Journal had reported earlier in the week that Dyer had been added to the university registrar’s database, which usually signifies an incoming student. The move had been made, it was just a matter of when and how Dyer and Hill released the information. Louisville chose not to comment on the story until he is actually enrolled.
“He’s excited to have an opportunity to resume his career,” Hill told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday evening. “Many people doubted that Michael would ever make this comeback, and it’s here.”
