The following is a statement from Virginia Tech Director of Athletics Jim Weaver
"The unsportsmanlike conduct of quarterback Marcus Vick
in yesterday's Gator Bowl
game against Louisville
is unacceptable behavior and contrary to the Hokies Respect Campaign.
Such on-field action is not reflective of Virginia Tech football nor of the values we hold at Virginia Tech. I and my colleagues in central administration are embarrassed and this athletic administration will not condone such acts of unsportsmanlike conduct. We will review and assess this incident further and deal with it accordingly."
