Freshman tailback Mike Dyer seemed to think it was one of his fellow teammates in the backfield.
"We've got a lot of guys on this team that love to crack jokes Onterrio Mccaleb is one of those guys Eric Smith is one of those guys we've got a lot of people that are characters that are funny so we have fun with it."
