"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
You might be right that he would still be a Gator under Meyer (especially after reading the long espn.com article about him), but the word was that Dyer failed a drug test that not only led to his suspension for the bowl game but also would have cost him multiple games the next season. There is no definitive answer that Dyer was told to "take a hike" by Auburn, rather it is quite possible (if not probable) that he left on his own.

It's that simple.
Auburn didn't have to do anything in response to a drug test if that truly was the issue-he was suspended for a violation of team rules. You tried making that point with an earlier link. Auburn did.
Too bad. He was my vote for Heisman last year...definitely one of the top players in the game.
Chances are they had little choice but to dismiss him if the rumors wind up being true.

I, for one, am a HUGE Auburn football fan, and I think that the Michael Dyer situation is one of the most upsetting things to me. It's not because we lost him, but it is because this guy could have had a wonderful football career. He was on pace to be one of the greatest running backs in Auburn history, along with Bo Jackson! But he chose to have a bad attitude (he told people he was bigger than Auburn and treated the coaches poorly) and got into trouble. Such a shame and waste of talent.

Concerning Robinson this is actually a big blessing. Imagine if he played and this was revealed mid season.
Right now it looks like he'll end up being a partial qualifier which is tantamount to being redshirted (and he most likely would've been redshirted anyway).
As far as this being a problem for Auburn, it's difficult seeing that being a likely reality. They essentially would have had to be complicit with the counselor and that just doesn't make much sense. I actually feel pretty bad for Robinson as it appears he did not know about the counselor's actions-if true he's got to be both embarrassed and frustrated.

There are Bama fans saying that we cheated with this whole Robinson deal. This is why we hate them. That, and about a million other things.
Meanwhile, Bama allegedly moved a top high school recruit to a school to Foley High School so he could pass high school. O ya, and they sent the NCAA down to Auburn to see if there was a booster involved with Rueben Foster because OBVIOUSLY no person could even think about changing from the University of Alabama to the Barn!
Now they are saying it was the AHSAA not NCAA.
