From what I understand during their meeting Dyer looked Charlie square in the eye and told him he wouldn't let him down. It takes brass balls to do that to a man like Charlie Strong. Plus we have head strength coach/human boulder/team rules enforcer Pat Moorer to keep Dyer on the straight and narrow.
Plus after reading Dyer's own press release about why he choose U of L, I don't think there's going to be much of a problem. He could have chosen a dozen other schools to go play that have less of a logjam at the RB position but he still chose U of L. Charlie is just that type of guy. When Charlie first came here we had a RB/CB that was relatively highly touted get a bunch of DUIs including passing out in his car while sitting in a Taco Bell drive thru and in another instance rear ending a police car. Charlie told him he couldn't play football anymore but that he could stay on scholarship, get straightened out and earn his degree. And that's what Darius Ashley did.
I guess it really boils down to this: if there is one coach and team in D1 that has the structure to handle a Micheal Dyer, it's Charlie Strong and the University of Louisville. From the outside it looks like desperation as you say but from here it's not. He's not going to start for us, that's Dom Brown's job, but he can help us out some. And who knows, if he goes all "Bo Jackson" during our game at USF or at Cincy (our 2 toughest games IMO) then I won't complain.
