Michael Dyer Suspended For Bowl Game: My Reaction
Whilst I was sleeping (time difference and all that) news broke in several places that Michael Dyer is going to miss the bowl game due to testing positive for Marijuana. I don’t want to get into that forever lasting argument over whether Marijuana should be legal or not, but the real issue is that he broke team rules, and that shouldn’t be accepted anywhere. It’s disappointing to hear, and some have said that he may choose to transfer, but a plan has been laid out for him to follow if he wants to regain the coaches respect, and I just hope he follows it. I don’t think he deserves to get kicked off the team for this, you can’t compare this to robbing peoples houses with firearms, in retrospect all he did was let his team down, and should be and will be given an opportunity to earn back his playing time.
If he does choose to transfer, then so be it. We’ve had great runningbacks before and we’ll have great runningbacks after, depth shouldn’t be an issue next year, especially with transfers Corey Grant and Mike Blakely, as well as incoming true freshman Jovon Robinson.
Mike, I hope you work hard to get back on the field, because that’s where you belong. I understand that you’re just a teenager, but if you want to play in the pro’s, as well as continue playing for Auburn University, then this cannot continue.
Your move Mike.
