    Apparently, the Hokies have had enough:

    Glad to see that VT doesn't want thugs on its team.

    Interesting questions for speculation--if the refs had caught him and ejected him, would he still be on the team? Will he keep playing somewhere else (if some other team will have him), or will he turn pro?

    as posted on the other Vick thread, and from my cousin's email:

    University President Charles Steger Statement on Marcus Vick

    January 6, 2006

    Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick has been permanently dismissed from the Hokie football program due to a cumulative effect of legal infractions and unsportsmanlike play.

    Virginia Tech had suspended Vick in 2004. The university provided one last opportunity for Vick to become a citizen of the university and re-admitted him in January 2005, with the proviso that any future problems would result in automatic dismissal from the team.

    Head Football Coach Frank Beamer met with Vick and his mother this afternoon and informed the quarterback and his family of the University's decision. His recent actions are unfortunate and we wish him well in his future endeavors.

    ****

    Said Coach Frank Beamer, "I'm very disappointed that this didn't have a better ending. We wanted what's best for this football team and Marcus. I certainly wish him the best."

    And, according to ESPN's SportsNation poll, 80% of respondents agree with VT on this one.

    It's sad to see a young person struggle. It's even more sad to see an adult take any pleasure in such. I saw Vick stomp on Dumerville, it was obviously intentional. Vick should have apologized, i wish he had. But Vick has paid a very high price for his actions and has seriously damaged his reputation, I can't see why anyone would celebrate over these failures.

    Maybe other people were right on the mark with every decision in their early twenties, I wasn't. Marcus Vick has messed up, everyone should pull for him to get himself straight, regardless of his football aspirations.

    That's too bad, he had alot of oppurtunities. IMO he was going to be a better QB than his brother, he's just as mobile but throws better.

    He'll be alright. There are enough teams in the league that are hurting for QBs. He'll get drafted, and make a bundle anyway.

    They're fine, but usually require a little salt, maybe a dab of lemon juice, and a little A-1 sauce...

    So let me get this straight....Vick gets pulled over for speeding and operating a vehicle without a licence 2 weeks before VT's Bowl appearance...yet no one at VT, no local officials, no local media... has any clue this has happened until after the Bowl game and after an ugly incident. Folks...we got ourselves a COVER UP.


    "On Friday, it was revealed that Vick had been stopped for speeding and driving with a revoked or suspended license in Hampton on Dec. 17, Cpl. James West said. Vick's license had been taken away in August 2004 when he was cited for reckless driving and marijuana possession in New Kent County. Steger suspended Vick from school at that time, and warned that any additional problems would effectively end his time as a member of the Hokies' football team."The university provided one last opportunity for Vick to become a citizen of the university and readmitted him in January 2005, with the proviso that any future problems would result in automatic dismissal from the team," Steger said Friday."



    Regardless if the University was aware of Vick's latest transgression, what does this say about the kid's character. "I ain't tellin nobody nuttin. What are they gonna do, kick me off the team. And so what...I'll be making big coin like my Bro in the NFL, Baby." Gotta love the values instilled in these college athletes by institutions of "higher education."

    Wrong! After he was dismissed from the team Vick's response was something like "No big deal, I'll just take it to the next level baby!".

    Whoever gives Marcus Vick a chance in the NFL next year will jump to the top of my list of least respected organizations.

    I KNOW it won't be the Pats.
