It seems so long ago since running back Michael Dyer was named the BCS National Championship MVP. In fact, it’s been nearly four years — and multiple teams later — for the talented runner.
Dyer won’t have an opportunity to create more bowl history, because he’s been ruled ineligible for the Belk Bowl against the Georgia Bulldogs.

Dyer was Louisville’s second-leading rusher with 481 yards. The senior split carries with sophomore Brandon Radcliff. With Dyer out of the lineup, fellow senior Dominique Brown should become a bigger part of the offense for the bowl game.
It’s a disappointing end after such a promising start to Dyer’s career.
After being named a Freshman All-American at Auburn, Dyer left the program in 2011 when he was indefinitely suspended. The running back transferred to Arkansas State to play under then-head coach Gus Malzahn. Dyer never played for the program after a run-in with campus police. The talented player finally found himself at Arkansas Baptist, a school without a football program. Dyer took a year to get his life in order before finally transferring to Louisville.
Unfortunately, Dyer’s career ended at Louisville just like it did everywhere else.
