Marcus Vick Forced to Ball Hard with No One in Particular
Apparently Marcus Vick was under intense scrutiny in the days following his stomping of Elvis Dumervil's calf in the Gator Bowl, and rightfully so, although I can't claim to have seen any press regarding the topic. It was a dirty, dirty move that angered me (and Nipsey, Jack, and Diddy and everyone else watching the game with us) and I'd be upset if it slipped under the radar.
It seems Vick's previous legal issues, coupled with recent legal run-ins and the obvious cleating of Dumervil's leg on national television have finally drawn the last bit of patience out of the Virginia Tech administration. He was kicked off the team earlier today.
Virginia Tech's program isn't exactly a beacon of morality, but it certainly isn't the worst case either. Marcus Vick generated a lot of press and interest in the team, and I, for one, am glad that they were able to pull the trigger here and show some integrity.
I'm also thrilled that this scandal didn't involve an Ohio State player. YAAAAAAAYYY! (Skiing!)
