Michael Dyer and high standards

While we’re on the subject of enabling

Gus Malzahn said he was aware of Michael Dyer’s involvement in a robbery last March, but that he’s not holding that against his star running back transfer.

“I am fully aware of Mike’s circumstances,” Malzahn said in a statement released by the school. “He knows very well the high standard we have of all our players here at Arkansas State, and I’m confident that he will meet those expectations.”

What, does that mean he’ll be expected to have a license to carry a concealed weapon?

Malzahn knew why Dyer was suspended last December and yet chose to invite him along to his new gig.  That should make for a very comfortable Arkansas State locker room.

It’s been a great week for the SEC West, hasn’t it?  How come we haven’t heard from our glorious commissioner on what’s been happening?

    Yeah, but, Dyer can help Malzahn win and that’s what is most important. Had Dyer been a 3rd stringer he would not deserve a 2nd chance.

    Wouldn’t it be a crazy twist if Malzahn was offered the Arkansas job and Dyer followed him there, too?

    Malzahn only wants the top 1% of the top 1% of retreads.

    We haven’t heard from the commissioner because there’s no money in it.

    Our commissioner has been busy with Ark, checking to see that no NCAA violations have occurred. Some where among all the smoke, I suspicion a fire. Use of University funds to promote his sex life might not be the only nefarious use of funds by a coach with no palpable conscience.
