Default Marcus Vick a Hokie No More

Marcus Vick has been kicked off the Virginia Tech football team after numerous issues, most recentley intentionally stepping on a Lousiville player in the Gator Bowl. More great talent being wasted.

Best thing for him? Dunno. But, the kid has been little more than a punk. He's a junior, so he can head on up to the NFL, where he has absolutely no chance of being a QB. Probably a receiver, possibly a RB. I doubt his ego will let him play defense, though he seems to have more a strong safety's attitude.

I'm surprised VTech decided to kick him off the team; I thought a one or two-game suspension would happen, but I guess the administration is keen on fixing their image.

I am too lazy to look up the link right now (you can find it on several websites), but one of the refs who worked the Lousville/VT game said he would've thrown Vick out of the game if he would've seen that, and that Virginia Tech is the dirtiest team he's every officiated in thirty years working games.

If Va Tech wanted to show real class, they would have suspended him after the drunk driving arrest, instead of waiting until after the bowl to even reveal it.

What drunk driving arrest? This article and the one on ESPN says he was arrested for speeding and driving with a revoked license.

So much for all of the early season hype about how he matured and learned from his one year suspension. No worries though I am sure big brother Mike take care of him and hire him as a personal assistant or something.

I heard on the radio on the way home he was busted for DUI. Maybe they just had it wrong.

I was referring to the recent arrest he had on December 17th that and the incident in the Bowl is what resulted in the dismissal.

Good riddance. I have zero respect for Frank Beamer and the Virginia Tech football program in general. He has nothing but classless filth and Vick was their leader.

I am sure there is an Arena League team he can play for somewhere in VA. :lol:

He can either enter the NFL draft or transfer to a Division 1-AA
