(END SOT) Frank Beamer hadn't been at the


podium for more than a minute when he
told the Hokie Nation he too was
embarrassed by his team's "thug-like"
play.

Forget Vick's now infamous stomp
- there are enough other classless
taunts and gestures this season to get
the veteran coach's attention.

FRANK BEAMER

MIKE STEVENS

The parting of the ways
apparently was just a difficult for
Vick's Mom Brenda Boddie.

She says she cried most of

Friday, but hopes that her youngest son
can one prove his doubters wrong.

FRANK BEAMER

The healing process begins
immediately - spring practice is just
three months away.
