Michael Dyer Makes Louisville Bonafide Contender for BCS National Championship
Don’t look now, but Louisville is a dark horse to win the BCS National Championship this year. Former title game MVP Michael Dyer has accepted a scholarship to play for the Cardinals and since he just graduated with an associate’s degree from Arkansas Baptist, he can play this year.
That means Heisman Trophy candidate Teddy Bridgewater just got some serious help in the backfield and Louisville is not just a feel-good story anymore. This team now has another superstar and the numbers don’t lie:
Dyer rushed for over 1,000 yards in his freshman and sophomore seasons at Auburn and was the offensive MVP of the 2011 BCS Championship game. He hasn’t played since then because of incidents involving drugs and guns, but if he’s anything like the player who helped Auburn to a national title, Louisville should vault into the top five teams once the rest of the college football preseason rankings are released.
Seriously, though: Who is going to challenge Louisville in the new American Athletic Conference? No one. Just getting to a BCS bowl game will be a piece of cake for the Cardinals, who now have their sites set on much bigger prize and with Dyer on board now, a title ain’t out of reach.
