Right after the men’s basketball game ended on Tuesday night against Cal State Northridge, UofL twitter didn’t turn all of its attention to the Kentucky basketball game. Instead, news came out from ESPN680 radio that running back Michael Dyer would not play for the Cards in next week’s Belk Bowl. So then, the speculation started about why.
Howie Lindsey and Jody Demling both tweeted and confirmed that Dyer was ruled academically ineligible for the game.

Either way, Louisville will move on without Dyer. Luckily, the running back position is pretty deep for the Cards with Brandon Radcliff, Dominique Brown (you would think) and freshman L.J. Scott. So in short, Louisville will be fine.
