Adios Hokies

Marcus VickYou knew it was going to happen, it was just a matter of time. Marcus Vick, aka Lil’ Ron Mexico, went and got himself booted out of Virginia Tech on Friday. His on field antics during the Gator Bowl apparently was the last straw for school officials, who have been babysitting the baby brother of Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick for the past three seasons.

Cameras caught Lil Vick stomping on the calf of Louisville All-American defensive end Elvis Dumervil during the Jan. 2 bowl. After the game Vick denied that it was intentional. He then claimed to have apologized to Dumervil, the Louisville standout said he never heard a word from Vick.

University president Charles Steger gleefully announced that Vick was no longer his problem in a statement released by the school. A press conference is scheduled for Saturday, where Stegar and head football coach Frank Beamer are expected to do back flips off the stage and high five each other in sombreros as a tribute to Vick’s older brother.

Hampton Police also revealed on Friday that Vick had been stopped for speeding and driving with a suspended license two weeks before the bowl game. Vick lost his license in 2004 on a reckless driving and a marijuana possession charge.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported on its Web site on Friday night that Vick would turn pro.

"It's not a big deal," Vick was quoted as telling the newspaper. "I'll just move on to the next level, baby."

Ah, it’s nice to see that all these challenges have set the young man on the straight and narrow.

Marcus Vick has already said he'll enter the NFL Draft.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN speculates that he'll go somewhere on Day 2 (after the first 3 rounds).

I predict we'll see him in Silver & Black -- Oakland PD be forewarned...

The next level is where they treat quarterbacks like rag dolls. Here's hoping Vick has something slightly more important stomped on in his first NFL game.

Marcus Vick is a punk! He is not ready for the next level and will be burried on a depth chart somewhere for a few years.
