VT Knows How To Grip and Sip

Frank Beamer has suspended sophomore wide-out Zach Luckett. Luckett, who comprised 50% of the Hokie returning WRs with actual game catches, racked up his second DUI since coming to campus. In stellar "Go Big" fashion, Luckett, of course being only 20 years old, was also operating on a revoked license. Because, you know, when you get a DUI at 19, they usually take that privilege away.

In Luckett's defense, it is Blacksburg, VA, and speaking from experience there really isn't anything to do other than grip and sip. When reached for comment, Phil Fulmer remarked, "Jesus, Beamer... it was only his second DUI. What the hell kind of Gestapo camp you runnin' down there.... Has anyone seen my snack?"

VT's season was already hanging by a fairly thin thread with the loss of key players in key offensive positions. The loss of Luckett will be felt, assuming he stays suspended. Beamer doesn't strike me as one to be played with, so farethewell, Zach Luckett, we hardly knew ye.

Yes, Richie. We're aware. We were going for comedy through the use of an image. Comedy is defined as follows, in case you're curious...

n., pl. -dies.

"racked up his second DUI since coming to campus."

Note: It's his 2nd DUI but only the first in Virginia. The first was up in NJ and the coaching staff was unaware of it. I believe it was from the summer after he graduated HS.
