BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick was suspended from the university for the 2004 season because of his run-ins with the law.

Virginia Tech officials said Tuesday they took the action because of Vick's convictions in May on three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after he and two teammates gave alcohol to 14- and 15-year-old girls at the players' apartment. Vick, who was acquitted of a charge of having sex with one of the girls, was sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $2,250.

The suspension also was based on reckless driving and marijuana possession charges filed against Vick last month after an early morning traffic stop on Interstate 64 in New Kent Kent County. The 20-year-old player faced trial on those charges Tuesday.

The younger brother of Atlanta Falcons quarterback and former Hokies star Michael Vick was clocked on radar at 86 mph, 21 mph above the speed limit, state police said. The traffic stop led to the marijuana possession charge.

Re-admittance to the university is contingent on Vick's successful completion of a drug education and counseling program.

I wonder if this will hurt him in the draft. or will people see him as Vick II and not care about the baggage he might bring to a team? Then again, he might straighten himself out.

Well he seems to have gotten himself into quite a bit of trouble this past year. I guess its a fitting punishment.

As for hurting him, if he is good enough he will make it as long as he learns how to keep out of trouble.
