Less than an hour to go before we know whether or not Dwight Dasher will be taking snaps against the Gophers in the season opener next Thursday. All signs certainly point toward him being suspended, even though there have been no formal charges to this point. Here is an excerpt from the Daily News Journal in Murfreesboro, who by the way has done a tremendous job covering this story over the last week.
The press conference was previously slated as a preview to the Minnesota game. But before the regular portion of the press conference, athletic director Chris Massaro will read a brief statement and give an update on Dasher’s situation amid a university inquiry and police investigation about the quarterback’s alleged gambling activities in poker games.
Dasher’s reps in practice have decreased over the last two days, giving more work to junior college transfers Logan Kilgore and Jeff Murphy. If Dasher does not play, MTSU will put a quarterback on the field that has not taken a Division I snap.
