Louisville RB Senorise Perry (705 yards rushing, 5.2 ypc, 11 TD last year) said the team welcomed Dyer with “open arms” Dyer, a former Auburn running back who transferred to U of L just days before August camp, got extra help acclimating to the Cardinals’ offense from Louisville's senior RBs. “He’s spending extra time with us,” senior RB Preston Brown said. “He’ll come pull me and Senorise (Perry), text us, call us, ask us what we’re doing. Sometimes we don’t go to the hotel and sleep. We stay up here and watch film with Mike, just trying to get him a jump-start, just get him to learn the offense.” Running backs coach Kenny Carter said the UL players have embraced Dyer and have gone out of their way to make sure he’s picking up the system.“He’s very attentive, and we have several player meetings one-on-one to make sure that he’s able to catch up,” Carter said. “His teammates that are in the same room with him do a really good job of peer teaching.” Auburn let Dyer go after he failed a drug test and a gun that he owned was used in a robbery. He never played a down for Arkansas State because a traffic stop for speeding also turned up a gun and drugs.
