But, thanks to your belated actions, Coach Beamer, at least he'll never become a graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and thus besmirch the reputation of every other young man and woman that spilt their blood, not on the grid iron, but in the laboratories and the libraries of that fine Univerity, and on the field of battle in service to their nation.
Oh, I 've still got "issues" with you, Coach Beamer. You and the brain trust at Tech pawned all your principles for the slimy buck that comes with prime-time, showcase football. I hope y'all can now find a price to put on character. Your stewardship of this public University, as pertains to your lapse of judgement concerning this individual, is "under concerted review" and expect a subpoena from we parents for the contents of your underwear drawer. That sound you hear at the bank? That's the sound of alumni wallets slamming shut. You screwed up. You embarassed us. We told you so two years ago.
Never. Ever. Ever. Again. The people of Virginia, the parents of Virginia, will NOT stand for any such future acceptance of the kind of thugish crap that we have seen from Mr. Vick and others involved with the Hokie, the very PROUD, Hokie football program. Clean it up. Now. Or we will clean house.
We send our children to you so that you might teach them, might make them into honest, caring, productive citizens. Can you honestly say that your stewardship of Marcus Vick has produced even a single one of those attributes? The Univerity's blind acceptance of the continued and unrepentant anti-social behavior of Marcus Vick poses genuine questions as to who is running the asylum. Virginia will expect answers. And y'all can well expect to be made to feel as uncomfortable as we do.
Consider the whole administration as being on probation.
Double Secret Probation.
But don't you dare smile, assholes.
I'm not. Virginia is not.
