Contrast Knile's demeanor with Dyer's and it's pretty easy to see how Petrino wasn't too keen on kissing his ass.
There's your answer right there. I now really think cBMFP never wanted the turd rancher in the first place, and Dyer's probably telling the truth that Petrino didn't seem very interested in him. Obviously, Petrino had to offer, with Dyer being a home product and all. I noticed on the coaches show that Petrino never mentioned Dyer by name, only "number five" and how much the team "enjoyed tackling no. 5 all night".
Looking forward to having Knile back, for sure.
