And Dasher hasn’t played this season yet for the Sun Belt Conference’s Blue Raiders, who started 1-2 heading into this past Saturday’s conference opener against Louisiana-Lafayette. Middle Tennessee had appealed the NCAA ruling, hoping to have Dasher back for that game against the Ragin Cajuns, but the NCAA upheld the suspension, meaning Dasher will have to wait to make his season debut on Oct. 5 against Troy – an ESPN2 national television game on a Tuesday night. Troy is the four-time defending Sun Belt Conference champion.
Dasher, the preseason Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Year, was suspended Aug. 27 for accepting the loan from an 80-year-old patient at a Veteran’s Administration Hospital. The loan became public when someone contacted campus police. Dasher said he borrowed the money for a “little family problem” and that it has been paid back.
Logan Kilgore and Jeff Murphy, both junior-college transfers, have both played in place of Dasher and both have struggled. Dasher’s last game was the 2009 New Orleans Bowl, when the Blue Raiders upset Southern Mississippi to cap a 10-3 season and a seven-game winning streak. Last season, Dasher became only the fourth player in NCAA Football history to rush for 1,000 yards and pass for 2,500 yards in the same season.
