Vick is Gone
Well, it's official. Marcus Vick has been dismissed from the Virginia Tech football team.
Apparently, in addition to his on-field transgressions, Vick was caught speeding with a revoked license on Dec. 17 in Hampton.
I must say that, despite my calls for his removal, I am not happy that his career has ended this way. Marcus is a very taleted player who has done great things for the team on the field this year. Unfortunately, there is a level of maturity that has escaped him to this point in his life. I wish Marcus the best in the future and I hope he will eventually grow up. I would not be surprised to see him go ahead and put his name in the NFL draft and be drafted.
I agree with this decision and I am glad that Virginia Tech can now move on and start a new era. While many Hokies are predicting doom and gloom for years to come, I am confident about VT's future. We have had some tremendous recruiting classes in recent years and there is a great deal of talent on both sides of the ball. While I doubt the Hokies will be competing for an ACC championship next year, I do think we will still be a force to be reckoned with in the ACC for years to come.
Let the Sean Glennon (or Cory Holt, or Ike Whittaker, or Greg Boone) era begin.
