Marcus Vick Suspended Indefinitely from Va. Tech Football Team

Apparently, like many college kids, he likes to drive fast and smoke the Mary Jane. Not a big deal, unless you've just been convicted of a whole booze/underage girl thing.

Yikes... hope he doesn't completely blow his opportunity.

This guy is an idiot. I certainly wouldn't draft his ass. Plus, he isn't even that good.

Bryan Randall went to the same high school as me, and ive seen him for a long time. He is more consistent, and a much better person, very active in the community, and very bright. He should have gotten the starting job to begin with. Vick is rediculous.

Better than marcus? I guess that's why Marcus shattered all of Mike's high school records, eh?

First of all you must understand the type of trouble this kid is allowed to get into. A famous multi-millionaire brother, and a lot to live up to. His decesions were stupid, but these aren't decesions that need to be made for most of us. He's a big name that everyone wants to impress and hang out with. Which can often lead them into the wrong crowd. I bet Vick and Beemer have a good heart to heart with him and watch him straighten up. Randall is a decent QB, but he's far from the callibre Vick is.

I think little Vick thinks he can get away with anything, partly because of who his brother is. Sometimes no amount of heart to hearts will straighten out a person with this mentality, sadly.

I only say him play against Miami, and he only threw two balls the whole game. Hes got legs but that doesnt equate to a good QB in the NFL. He needs to learn to be a QB, or he should jsut play HB.

in techs bowl game this past season, he showed more recieving skills than any of throwing talent he showed while playing QB. Right now he obviously is thinking that normal rules don't apply to him because of his last name and he might be throwing his future down the drain right now. And Bryan Randall has played too well the past 2 years to have his starting job taken away by someone making these types of mistakes off the field.

He made a mistake and should and will be penalized criminally and/or via the university. We musn't forget he's 20 years old and famous with a millionaire older brother and a pretty good future (at 20 yrs old) of becoming another Vick millionaire. He will outgrow these legal happenings whether he chooses to be 'good' and follow in the steps of his bro becoming a great NFL QB or chooses to work on cars or whatever. Might not be smart, but shit he's 20 yrs old. Anyone here drive fast and smoke weed before you were 21? Some of us have learned its not a real smart thing to do!

Guys - Vick has had very limited exposure as far as what we've seen as a QB. However, Marcus crushed Mikes highschool records and has a load of talent (thank god for Kazaa, they have everything. Even some HS Vick games!) If I do remember SkinsNCanes, they put Marcus in because we were already up by quite a few touchdowns =p

Keep it in perspective he smokes weed and drove too fast and got caught up with some young girls, he is still a kid. People are so quick to judge but those are relatively small infractions, we should pay more attention to the people raping our kids and smiling in our faces everyday. but those kinds of people get a slap on the wrist and get sent to another district to perpetrate again. It would matter if he was a driver or fighter pilot or precher but as a quarterback who cares about his lifestyle is that really important? Can he run can he throw can he learn the plays? We hold 20 year old kids to higher standards than we hold our leaders. Cheney has two dui's and Bush has one should that have their lives runined? No. He might become a born again christian one day, he still has time to grow into a man and be a productive citizen.

so havin sex with a 15 year old is a small infraction? Getting the girls drunk and telling them to strip is a small infraction?
