Former Auburn running back Mike Dyer testified today that a gun used in an alleged robbery involving four other ex-Auburn players was his. Former Tigers Antonio Goodwin — on trial now — Dakota Mosley, Shaun Kitchens and Mike McNeil were arrested in March of 2011.
Dyer — Auburn’s leading rusher the last two years and the MVP of the 2011 BCS Championship Game — testified that he and Mosely, Goodwin, and Kitchens were drinking beer and smoking synthetic marijuana while watching an NBA game when “Dakota asked me if I want to hit a lick.”
“Hit it a lick” means — apparently — “let’s go rob someone.”
Dyer said he wouldn’t do that. Yet it was his gun that was eventually used in the robbery that also involved McNeil.
Dyer has since followed Gus Malzahn to Arkansas State.
Auburn fans enjoyed a fantastic season in 2010. But from L’affair Newton to a much-hyped HBO investigation to an NCAA investigation to the dirt that’s going to come out from these guys’ trials… all the memories of that team might not be good ones for Tiger backers.
