Dyer commits to the Tigers

Hey everyone. Our friends at AuburnSports.com, who have ace reporter Jeffrey Lee on the ground in Arkansas, are reporting that tailback Michael Dyer has committed to play football at Auburn.

Dyer stands 5-foot-8 and weighs approximately 200 pounds. He is Arkansas' all-time rushing leader with 7,566 yards and 74 touchdowns.

``Coach (Gus) Malzahn is a really good coach and I respect his offense a lot. I know he would do really good things," Dyer told AuburnSports.com. "People promise good things, but I have a great idea that he would do the things that he says he will."

ESPN lists Dyer as the nation's No. 1 prep tailback. Rivals.com and Scout.com rank Dyer third.

More to come on this development.

What do you think the bammers are saying about the Dyer commit?

Luv - the good bammer (if those 2 words can be used together, in reference to FSJ) probably is saying "Who cares what's going on at Auburn?" The typical bammer is talking ignorant trash.

I'll ask my Alabama experts at the gym today.

I always try to get in your shoes and imagine what I'd think about Man City getting some big-time baller like Kaka or Ronaldo.

As long as WE beat Man City, I couldn't care less about who they have on the roster.

That's just me.

JGT they also have like 20 LB's but that didn't stop them from going after more.

I must admit, I can't name a single Alabama commitment... so I imagine the majority of their fans don't care about this at all.

Thanks, Tar Heel. I don't follow that kind of football AT ALL.

And, I was talking about the stereotypcial bammer. Fans like us and UAT fans like FSJ couldn't care less who the other team recruits. Like Michael and WEG, I have no idea who UAT's commits are. I probably can't even name 10 players on their current roster.

Regarding UA recruiting, I knew when they got Julio, but who didn't? The giant huzzah was kind of hard to miss.

10:23 AM

Dyer is still a 5-Star, but Rivals has a history in the past of dropping big time Auburn Commitment's star ranking just magically after they commit. I think that was what WTC was make fun of.

Funny stuff I saw on Sportscenter this morning:

1. Bullrider celebrating staying on bull for 8 seconds by doing flip while leaving the ring. Bull smacks him from behind upon completion of the flip.
2. Semi-pro football player returning punt is tackled by member of his own team. It was not a situation where they accidently ran into each other. The tackler completely wrapped him up.
3. Mark Ingram still being touted for Heisman. He's not even the leading rusher in his own state, for crying out loud!

Probably the most impressive thing about Dyer is his ability to adjust his height. Not every player can do that. I have seen him listed anywhere between 5'8" and 5'10". Being flexible to make those kind of adjustments is something I like in a runningback.

The team that Dyer is playing never punts. They go for it on all fourth downs. There was a story on si.com about it

11:31 AM  
Blogger Jet said...

A rational thought ...

A month ago, I didn't think this. Mark Ingram is legitimately a Heisman candidate. He is clearly talented, and is the pre-emiment offensive force on a top-3 team. That's a one-way ticket to the Heisman discussion.

I wouldn't be surprised if he jumped to the head of the pack after Faker's team puts a beat down on the Hat tomorrow. May not happen that way, but I have a feeling it will.

I'm all about hatin' UAT, but I'm not going to trade my ability to be rational as well. By the objective standards (yards per game, yards per carry, TDs per game), his stats are better than Ben Tate's. If I had a Heisman vote right now, I'd probably vote for him.

I'm not saying Ingram's not good. And I understand the top 3 team ranking. I just don't see anything that clearly separates him from Tate or Dixon, the other 2 top RB's in the conference. Throw in Hardesty, too.

Honestly, a person I might seriously consider is C.J. Spiller. Guy seems to score a touchdown of 50 yards or more (whether returning kicks, running, or receiving) every game.

You're missing another key component of the formula, Jet:

Being a QB. Only one RB has won it this decade. Bama has to make it to Atlanta and win there to have any chance for Ingram. Even then, my cousin Colt McCoy might (and hopefully will) beat him to the crown.

My position is this:

b) if I had a vote, as of now, I'd vote for him.

Doesn't mean I think he'll win, but he's more legit than Tate, Spiller, Dixon, Herring or Crompton.

I'm surprised Ingram's Heisman campagin has not lost a little more momentum after UT.

Again, I concede he is a great running back and he's done great this year. But it was his fumble that sparked UT's comeback and nearly cost the Tide their undefeated season. I'd vote for a Bama defender before Ingram. I said that a few weeks ago, and I still say it.

12:06 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

fsj- i went to Glencoe, i thnk they made the playoffs for the first time in a looonngg time

12:09 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

E-Bro,

The problem with Ingram against UT is that they didn't run him enough.

Yeah he fumbled on a good play by the UT defender, but that was his first lost fumble since he's been at Alabama. Pretty good if you ask me.

12:09 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Harrison,

I've seen Glencoe play three times this year. They are very well coached.

Lee Ozmint does a great job. If you could swap Glencoe's staff for Gadsden's they would be in the running in 6A every year.

I keep thinking that eventually Gadsden will can Billingsley and make a run at Rush Propst who is from nearby Ohatchee.

12:11 PM

Jet & Everyone Else- Below is the post where the hate really started to be born on here. Apparently I was Jet's hero, now I'm dead to him. OH well :). Actually, it's funny to look back at these old posts knowing what we know now, but it also reminds that we have several people that don't post anymore along with a bunch of people here now that weren't here last year. I love this place. My favorite spot on the net.

12:12 PM

Harrison,

One other thing....I don't think Glencoe has a player that is bigger than me but they get after you.

The run the spread and have a pretty good QB. They are 3A but have beaten a 5A school and a couple of 4A schools this year.

12:13 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

i had some buddies go back home for the hokes bluff game and said the same thing. I am impressed. We have usually stunk so bad

12:14 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

FSJ, again, I'm not saying Ingram isn't great. My point is that Heisman candidates are generally held to a higher standard and the first game after his first real week of hype, he almost cost his team. No shame in that. It happens to anyone. Just saying.

Like 1992, if Bama goes on to win everything this year, reason #1 will be the defense, even as good as Ingram is.

As for tIngram in the UT game, they definitely didn't run him enough, but that said, their only real success running him was the from the Wildcat, when for some reason, UT refused to bring up a safety into the box.

12:16 PM  
Blogger Jason said...

I'd vote for a Bama defender before Ingram. I said that a few weeks ago, and I still say it.
=======================

I've said the same. Ingram is an excellent back, but he won't win the Heisman. Bama has been winning with defense. Heisman winners are lately QBs. A RB who wins it better have crazy-good stats...like a 2000 yard season.

Tebow will win it again for the simple reason that they'll want to honor him as one of the greatest college FB players ever by giving him a 2nd Heisman..plus his career stats are just sick...

12:22 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I agree that if we win it all it will be because of the defense......buttttttttt

If we do say (by some miracle) win the SEC and are undefeated with Ingram being basically our offense...He will finish in the top three and may win it.

12:22 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

dangit Eddie..beat me to the punch

12:27 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

No question there, FSJ. Despite what I've said, I'm enough a realist to know how the Heisman works. He would definitely be in the top 3 at that point. His biggest fork in the road then will be an undefeated Texas team and Colt McCoy, even though I think Texas, like Bama, is doing it with defense first.

They're certainly more explosive on offense than Bama is, but I don't think that defense gets enough credit. Texas Saftey Earl Thomas is a man.

12:27 PM

so Eddie, is that officially when the HATE began?

it's crazy reading that stuff and remembering posting that stuff a year ago. and i usually can't remember anything.

Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Eddie,

Thanks for the flashback... I was all over that "Paul Rhodes to Utah State" rumor.

12:30 PM  
Blogger Jason said...

previous three RBs to win the Heisman...

2005 Reggie Bush 1740 yards
1999 Ron Dayne 1834 yards
1998 Ricky Williams 2397 yards

At this point in time, the Heisman is a QB award...simple as that. For a RB to win it, he has to have CRAZY numbers.

Ingram is good, but as one sports writer said (Chris Low, I think), he might not even be the best back in the state of AL...

12:31 PM

To me, the very definition of bitter is two teams refusing to play each other for 40 odd years because they couldn't agree on the per diem. Or is that just petty?

I understand the Fulmer stuff has escalated things in recent years, but there has to be a history of bitterness, not just a 5-10 year period.

FSJ- I bet you enjoyed the week that Chizik was hired also on here :).

12:43 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Scottie- That is the best I can tell from reading the old posts.

12:44 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

By the way, in the flashbacks, E-Bro plays the role of Michael4AU. He felt the need to get away from the name "Michael" as fast as he could on here.

12:45 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

E-Bro,

I agree...

UA/UT is probably the most historically significant rivalry in the SEC due to where both teams rank all time.

However, there is no doubt that Alabama/Auburn or Auburn/Alabama for my HABOTN friends is the most intense.

The thing about the Iron Bowl is that "usually" the best team wins..Not always the case, but usually that is what happens.

The Bama/UT series is totally different. There was a 10 year stretch or so where Alabama won 8 or 9 in a row and Tennessee probably had better players in most of those years. Thank you Johnny Majors.

Blogger FSJ said...

The week Tuberville was fired and Chizik hired was an interesting week. I had ALOT going on that week. And still couldn't be pulled away from HABOTN.

12:46 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Yeah, I'm not one to step on toes, and knew early on that either I didn't want to be disrespectful to all that Michael brings to this blog or in no way whatsoever did I want to be associated with what he brings to this blog.

Kind of a double edged sword, but there ya go. Thus, from the ashes of Michael4AU arose E-Bro.

The UT rivalry became even bigger for Alabama after Fulmer got them in trouble and it happened during a time they couldn't beat Auburn so many of their fans focused their attention to Knoxville.

However no game means more to their respective fan base than the Iron Bowl.

12:49 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I've always had the same name on here and on any of the other blogs I've been rumored to have been ran off from.

Mainly because I'm too lazy to change.

12:50 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Agreed FSJ.

I accept the Third Saturday in October Rivalry as one of the country's best, but like you said, it's based (until recently with the Fulmer stuff) more in the fight for historical supremacy.

The Iron Bowl is and always has been a good old fashioned hate-fest. The quintessential 365 days a year rivalry.

12:51 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

RK,

There is no doubt who I would rather beat this year.

I was at the UT game..and was thankful to win....but

I think I'll just drink myself into oblivion if we lose the Iron Bowl.

12:51 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I was Originally Eddie4AU, but now, Eddie is just fine. This future poster may just go by "E" :)!

12:52 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

If you ever want to figure out what games mean more, just lose it and see how you take it.

12:53 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Exactly....

LOL I just noticed the flashback linked by Eddie is on a day I called into the Roundtable..

I believe I outted a few bammers here that day.

12:54 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

The Roundtable is dead to Habotn these days also.

12:57 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I could only listen to The Roundtable when Jay G was on it...and half the time he was on it they would have that one guy who just talked over everyone.

12:59 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

I know it was posted earlier, but I wasn't able to watch the women's soccer video at work. I just wateched it. That Lambert girl is a BI***!!! Why does NMSt even allow her on the team? Her actions were totally and completely unsportsmanlike. Who knew women's soccer was so rough?

1:11 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I make it a habit of not messing with women that I think can physically whip me.

1:12 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

You don't have to worry about that with me, FSJ. I've never been in a fight in my life.

1:19 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Luv, are you flirtin' with the Bammer?

1:20 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Scott C- Why, is she flirting with Jet? :)

1:22 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

Absolutely not. When FSJ said "messing," my mind didn't go there.

1:22 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

Poor Jet. He's not even here to defend himself.

1:23 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Too bad i don't call into the Roundtable anymore..I'd throw Jet under the bus now.

1:25 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I think I might have a date set up with Elizabeth Lambert for next Friday. Hope things go well.

1:25 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Waker..

She will hurt you...and make you like it.

1:29 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

FSJ, I don't think she will have to do too much arm twisting, do you?

1:39 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Waker- Wear a cup and shave your head and you will be good to go on your date.

1:39 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

It is my intent to raise the hate to great heats and heights.

Unfortunately, I must now take my leave for Mobile and drive back tonight, so I can go to AU tomorrow a.m.

Hate UAT. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Dunnaway and Brown had Dyer on the show after his press conference. He said he was going to try to get Marcus Lattimore to come to Auburn too.

Jet- We are just two men that started a hate quest. I never thought I would see one of us endorsing a hated back as heisman. That hurt and maybe I over reacted :). Can someone that truly hates bama with all his fiber vote for their back as heisman? I plead for Habotn to rule on the sanity of this issue :).

1:48 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Jet was never sane, it's a non-issue.

2:12 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I've just realized that Alabama has not beaten LSU at Bryant-Denny since 1999. Time for that streak to end.

2:13 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Continue the streak...it must live on! :)

2:14 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I'm in awe of Scottieus Etheridge. That was great! Hurrah for Terry Beasley!!!

2:14 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

Eduardo ..

Maybe ... Just maybe ... there's a method to my madness.

BWAHAHAHA.

2:17 PM

When does a streak become tradition?

Nice avatar Eddie.

FSJ - LSU only has about another 279 years of similar success in T'town to go to match UA-T's success in BTR

Cool video of a Deaf 19 year old girl who won the womens motocross championship. She's a pretty cool chick.

2:22 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We have a girl at work who does motocross. At halloween a couple of years ago, she wore her gear. Where I work has two main campuses one in the south and one in the northeast. One of our VP's was there and speaking in front of everyone said "we don't have redneck things back home like that".

Seriously, that happened.

Blogger Harrison said...

I love how everything in America is PC and racist, except when it comes to "rednecks", we can call them names and make fun of them all day long

Wow...those hate threads Eddie posted from last year were quite entertaining. I had forgotten how stinking funny Jet was being that week.

Not that hate is a funny thing, but you know....

2:59 PM

Let the record show that ever since I gave Kristina's stock the "up" arrow, she has been posting much more.

My tips are unbeatable!!!

Blogger FearlessFreep said...

I've had the advantage of seeing a few of the Deep South's rivalries up close, and for my money, the fiercest hate I've ever encountered is between Ole Miss and MSU.

No contest.

3:09 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Faker is not joking.

3:11 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Faker likes talking in the third person.

3:12 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Ole Miss/MSU?

Has anybody ever been killed over the game?

I know that has happened because of UA/AU

3:13 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Kristina, have you enjoyed your vacation? Was I that bad of a boss that you needed to take a month off?
