Vick Is Dismissed from Hokie Team
Virginia Tech dismissed quarterback Marcus Vick from the team Friday, citing "a cumulative effect of legal infractions and unsportsmanlike play." The annoucement came after it was revealed that Vick was facing a misdemeanor charge of driving on a suspended license. He was stopped in Hampton at 3:31 a.m. on Dec. 17 for driving 38 mph in a 25 zone. Dec. 17 also was the day that the Hokies began preparations for the Gator Bowl with a 1 p.m. run in Blacksburg, which is considerable distance from Hampton, roughly 300 miles. The information just became public after it was entered Thursday into the Virginia Judicial Systems website. What is disturbing is that Vick might have avoided dismissal had the news about his latest legal troubles not become public. Virginia Tech has a lot of explaining to do.
