On Homecoming Eve, the head of Virginia Tech's board of visitors calls football players' brushes with the law an ongoing embarrassment to the university.
But Henry Dekker says he's satisfied with head coach Frank Beamer's response to the problem.

(( Frank Beamer says junior kick returner Walter Ford was on the road to a good career at Virginia Tech when he was charged with shoplifting on October third.
Beamer had to punt Ford...after Marcus Parker's suspension for his own shoplifting conviction, the coach had laid down the law.

Ford was the last straw.
Besides Parker, Beamer has suspended several other players this season for brushes with the law.
During the LAST school year, three players earned misdemeanor convictions, two others, including quarterback Jim Druckenmiller were charged and acquitted of assault and battery, and Christy Brzonkala accused three in her alleged sexual assault.
